Intro

C G D G

She tried to Chold me She tried to Ghold me She didn’t Dknow love is letting Ggo She said ‘I’m looking for Cperfection’ as she strode in my Gdirection She cast her mantle Dround me, said ‘I’m completed since you Gfound me’ She executed her Cenchantment secreted me in her Gencampment With diversions and preDtences she dismantled my deGfences She tried to hold me She tried to hold me She didn’t know love is letting go She told me I was unrealistic and then she went ballistic in her powder blue pajamas, me some flotsam in her drama She said “love’s what I believe in” but inside she was seething with a cyclone raging under like she was skin surrounding thunder She tried to hold me She tried to hold me She didn’t know love is letting go I made it to the stairwell in the street I muttered farewell with a driving wind agin me and shame exploding in me It took me six years to begin again to feel secure in my own skin again for she lingered like uranium like a demon in my cranium She tried to hold me She tried to hold me She didn’t know love is letting go All this was long ago now and if I knew then what I know now I’d have deployed a little patience I’d have laughed at all her stipulations but I was young and I fumbled a boy-fool whose castle crumbled I couldn’t save her though I forgave her She tried to hold me She tried to hold me She didn’t know love is letting go
