Labelling – Dedicated to John, Kurt & Julia

I grasp and grab at each flitter of love

John told me “hold on to whatever will get you through”*

I fold it careful into a heart-shaped box**

Treasure for me, my future, Courtney’s too

Hold on

Hold on

You question my situation

Label it abuse

 

So I tell you…

 

Don’t be ashamed to let yourself feel

It’s only abuse if I lose the key

Don’t let darkness rest and taint

It’s only abuse in your eyes

 

You’re acting like I’m blind, a fool

Julia cries “hold on? What did you say that for?”***

Yet I still capture the laughter

Ready to inject, cure further more

 

You question my technique

Label it abuse

 

So I tell you…

 

Don’t be ashamed to let yourself feel

It’s only abuse if it stews in the emptiness

If I let it smother each breath

It’s only abuse in your eyes

 

I hear what you’re saying

But it doesn’t hurt

I hear what you’re saying

But there’s no need to worry

 

No more questions

I’m getting through

Don’t label it

I’m still getting through

 

Lyrics from:

*’Don’t trust myself loving you’ – John Mayer / **’Heart-shaped box’ – Nirvana / ***’Hold on’ – Julia and Angus Stone
