My Dearest Elaine

from Together Is Where We Belong by Ryan Tanner



written by ryan tanner


my dearest elaine
nothing has changed
will you pull the cord and please let me go?
i’ve been twisting in this noose, hoping you would turn me loose
i’ve got to get my feet back on the floor
ever since the night i fell, fell deep into your spell
when you closed your eyes and said you were in love
and the winter evening breeze lifted through the cedar trees
to the emptiness of the stars above
let me get to the point, i hate to disappoint you
but in the morning i’ll be gone
i’m done, i’m moving on

it was written in a note that i slipped into your coat
i always knew you’d be the death of me
walking hand in hand through the park
you wrapped your wires around my heart
if you love something you will never set it free
you say you believe in love, but you don’t believe in love
it’s just something that you use to get along
in the morning i’ll be gone

looking down from this hotel room
i’m a king and my kingdom’s in ruin
there’s nothing left for me now
and i want to go home
let me go home
