I thought that I was holding you back
Dragging you down into the depths.
Keeping you from spreading your wings
Drowning you instead of letting you take flight.
But oh, what a lovely fool I am!
You were never in any harm; you were just fine
For you were the one tying me down
With strings made of my own device.
You are free to string me along as you wish
Without a care, since I am under your control;
Bound to you when I thought I was deceiving you.
Oh what a lovely fool! What a lovely fool I am!
