Cut It Loose -Written Thursday 21st October 2005 (Aged 30)

Cut It Loose

my friend on the telephone
she said cut it loose,
cut it out
she settled my mind
she knew what all this was about
my friend from across the sea
said let it go,
cut it loose
you will never be free
i confessed to my depression
i gathered my friends around
those that matter
i showed them,
my loneliness on a platter
and they offered me arms –
which i took gladly
they said, cut it loose,
cut it out
you know they mean everything to me
you know, they know, what all this is about
and i have to agree
