lyrics

string too short to use
I can’t bind me to you
I’ve studied all the knots of my heart
but you keep on falling through
and I can't tie it tightly
I cannot get a grip
on string too short to use
and knots that always slip

and I never learned how to hold on
I only know how to let go
and I never learned how to be strong
and I just thought you should know

lone wolf, lone wolf
do you ever feel that great big gulf
that stands between you and everything that you could be
if only you weren’t so lonely?

and I never learned how to hold on
I only know how to let go
and I never learned how to be strong
and I just thought you should know

and sometimes when I look up at the sky
blue just seems like another shade of gray
and sometimes when I look into your eyes
I have to close my own and then look away

string too short to use
I can’t bind me to you
I’ve studied all the knots of my heart
but you keep on falling through
and I can't tie it tightly
I cannot get a grip
on string too short to use
and knots that always slip

and I never learned how to hold on
I only know how to let go
and I never learned how to be strong
I just thought you should know
