Human Petting Zoo - Being In Love

from The Spirit of Youth by Human Petting Zoo & dreadrick



i used to think being in love meant satisfying all conditions
checking boxes, checking temps, putting your back into it
i was never caught by surprise, spent so much time catastrophizing
waiting for the spiral
i stretched myself so thin, tho you couldn't see thru me
i was careful not to let my guard down, to get to close
cause if i did then that would mean someone might try and control me
like a candle in a lantern on a windy day

now i go out with a laugh, and we could hang all day
no fists are banging on the doors, telling me to run away
always a work in progress, sometimes i'm lost in the process
you're always walking me back home

so blow me out, cause i'm done burning
i'll become one with the wind
smoke will dissipate and tears evaporate
everything will perfectly unfold
