untethered

lyrics

That's when she said, I want something just a slower
To calm and ease that head
So I start to feel as if I know her
And, I try my best not to forget

But take this tether from my soul
It don't belong here anymore
You gone and done it all by yourself
Whatever love thinks it's got on us now
It's been a long road, but I know we'll work it out (yes, we will)

When I cry, Ray you are my sunshine
So I try, yes I try, just for you
And when I laugh, the clouds seem to say goodbye
So I try, yes I try, just for you

But take this tether from my soul
It don't belong here anymore
You gone and done it all by yourself
Whatever love thinks it's got on us now
It's been a long road, but I know we'll work it out (yes, we will)

That's when she said, she wants something just a slower
To calm and ease that head
So I try, yes I try, Lord knows I do
But in the end, it's me who I'm best.
