about

Both this song and "Fireflies" were written about the same girl a long, long time ago. They're dated odes to the helplessness of young love, but they remain special to me and I thought they'd work well in a simple context. I'd attempted this one on a previous album and kept it pretty much the same, just altering a line or two and adding the harmony vocal.

lyrics

Ran away, back again
You play with me and pretend
You pull the string, I obey
Back again, can't escape

I like to tell myself I'm strong
But that falls apart when I begin my falling back to you
But will it ever be enough to rid me of your curse
And is that even what I want to do?

I'm your puppetboy

Hide inside, sit and wait
For the time I create
It didn't work, not surprised
Try again another time

I like to tell myself I'm strong
But that falls apart when I begin my falling back to you
But will it ever be enough to rid me of your curse
And is that even what I want to do?

I'm your puppetboy
