Love with Caution - Silverstein

The river's running fast right now.
It's the time of year the water cleanses itself.
Running wild, but always in control.
And now's the time to sever the ties.
To habits that we think s_ck.

Break away this fear,
Until it disappears.
I'm not ready to swim, I'm not going to sink.
I just want to float through the sea.
Are you holding me down?
Are you holding me up?
Or are you slowly drowning me?

There's something to be said for luck.
It's better than being good.
When half of being good is being lucky, anyways.
We're spreading out, we're harder to hit.
Become a moving target,
Drop your burden,
And abandon it.

Break away this fear,
Until it disappears.
I'm not ready to swim, I'm not going to sink.
I just want to float through the sea.
Are you holding me down?
Are you holding me up?
Or are you slowly drowning me?

I remember the day when I could walk right down the streets
And feel so confident, and know everything's okay.
Take my hand, don't let go, but please remember, hearts can grow.
We still have to take it slow.
I love with caution and trust, alone.

I'm not ready to swim, I'm not going to sink.
I just want to float through the sea.
Are you holding me down?
Are you holding me up?
Or are you slowly drowning me?
