The Different boy

I can hold on to you, but only if you let me
Throw you away like a burned down match, if you wanna forget me
Give you all my love, and hang it on a ring
Any less than that is more than I can do

I can breathe you in, Show you out
To the back door of the lobby
I can wish you well, call you a car
And watch you escape me

You’re my high wire, I’m your net
So Momma take a look at me now, tell me something you’ll never regret

It feels just like, we’ve been here before
It’s clear to me now
And you’re not quite, The burning ember
That I remember
Different Boy Different Day

They tell me good will stay, the others get away
3 inch hoops and high heels, Rule breakers of the rules

Your closet light burns my eyes
When I try to close them
And you’re not quite, The burning ember
That I remember
I can Breathe you in, Show you out
To the back door of the lobby
I can wish you well, Call you a car
Watch you escape me
Different Boy Different Day
