You attached a string of hopes to the kite
And wanted it to fly high without a wind and daylight.
You built up a castle of loose sands
That only crumbled down with your hands.
You travelled across the starry nights in a paper boat
That only sank if you knew how long it could stay afloat.
I respected all your feelings were alright
Sometimes we cannot hold our emotions so tight.
Only if you had asked me about it from the start
It would not have left you with a broken heart.
