Emotionally You Still Hold Me to Ransom – Written Wednesday 11th August 1999 (Aged 24)

Emotionally You Still Hold Me to Ransom

emotionally you still hold me to ransom
i may have the gun,
but you have the dress and it is so handsome
emotionally you still tie me to the bed
makes demands upon our friendship
there are more than the words we said
emotionally you still hold me to ransom
it is a tired old game,
even with your clothes which are so handsome
emotionally we are still in bed
i may have the gun,
but it feels like you are pointing it at my head
emotionally you still hold me to ransom
it is unfair but i suffer it,
because in truth, i probably do the same
but i think it is time to move,
and learn to deal with this pain
