How long will it take to make you never let me go?

Never Let Me Go
by me

I think I’ve reached the point
I swore I’d never reach
I think it’s past the point
Of no return.

I think this time I need,
I swore I’d never need
But now I must concede
Before I end up getting burned.

I’m tossing and turning
My whole body’s burning
My heart’s finally learning
That it has met its match.

How long will it take
Before you’re convinced that I’m the one?
How many times must I break
Before you’ve decided that you’re done
Thinking of us as temporary
Believing that permanence is scary?
How long will it take
To make
You never let me go?

I’m scared I feel too much
Maybe you don’t return
What I feel, I’m out of touch
With what you might be withholding

I don’t know if you need,
I swore I’d never need
Why am I overanalyzing
When I’ve got such a good thing going?

I’m living, reliving
The loves I’ve been giving
And losing and winning
Have somehow now crossed paths.

How long will it take
Before you’re convinced that I’m the one?
How many times must I break
Before you’ve decided that you’re done
Thinking of us as temporary
Believing that permanence is scary?
How long will it take
To make
You never let me go?

Hold me
When I’m old, be
There to hold me
Don’t let me go, be
Right where you are now
How long 'til there's no doubt?
It's been a year now,
Do I have to wait one more?

I think I’ve reached the point
I swore I’d never reach
I think it’s past the point
Of no return.

I think this time I need,
I’m praying that you need
I’m starting to believe
That you’re afraid of getting burned.

I’m tossing and turning
My whole body’s burning
My heart’s finally learning
That it has met its match.

I’m living, reliving
The loves I’ve been giving
And losing and winning
Have somehow now crossed paths.

How long will it take
Before you’re convinced that I’m the one?
How many times must I break
Before you’ve decided that you’re done
Thinking of us as temporary
Believing that permanence is scary?
How long will it take
To make
You never let me go?

Don’t think of us as temporary,
Permanence should not be scary.
How long will it take
To make
You never let me go?

How long will it take
To make
You never let me go?
