Longing Is Not Love

about

young girl, listen, the only thing you need is a deep breath, don't forget to take it all in
young girl, slow down, put two feet on the ground, if your heart's broken leave it open, don't lose faith in the world

can you hear the message in the mess you made becoming clearer?
can you feel the rhythm of your heart?
i know it's all the fashion, crimes of passion born of best intentions
you know i loved you from the start

longing is not love, anxiety not passion
the things you're dwelling on
they turn into obsession
let your love grow, let it go

so ask yourself, what is it you're worth?
would you rather be liked or be respected in this crazy colourful world?
no it's not my life, but take some free advice girl
you're in a pattern of destruction and it's holding you down
find your independence drop the pretence and the false confidence
forget everything you know
there is only love
i want to be your lover, not a brother, not a father figure
you know two halves don't make us whole

longing is not love, anxiety not passion
the things you're dwelling on
they turn into obsession
let your love grow, let it go
