Week Ten: “Shackles”

There’s a letter to my love
sitting on my desk
Unopened, undelivered,
and unadressed
She has vanished with the wind
And I don’t think she’s coming home again

Twenty-thousand words about our love
A novel’s worth of dreams I’ve been dreaming of
Memories of dancing in the sun
Chasing after her when she would run

And if I had two wings
then I would fly to you
And if I had two fins
then I would swim to you
And if I had two dollars
I would purchase you
And if I had two chains
then I would shackle you

[Chorus 1x]

There’s a letter to my love
sitting on my desk
Unopened, undelivered,
and unaddressed
I though that I would send it
but now I know
that the best thing I could do
is let you go

[Chorus 2x]
