A song about two lovers fighting to make it work.
Something is Holding Us Back
by Tristan Weiland

[verse I]
You and I, on a cloud
High above the ocean
Hands entwined, a clear blue sky
But then I fall down

[chorus I]
I don't deserve this, but I'm hungry for it all
And we can have it all
But something is holding us back
Something is swallowing me whole
While you're chained to a shadow
Something is keeping me down
While you're higher than an angel
Something is holding us back

[verse II]
You and I, on a park bench
At the start of fall
An orange leaf, fallen between us
Tearing us in two

[chorus II]
I know I must break out, but I'm frightened by my daemons
And I know you need my strength
But something is holding us back
Something is eating me alive
While you're fading into the background
Something is tearing my heart out
While you're ripped in two
Something is holding us back

[bridge]
And I try to grab your hand again
So close and yet so far
Only two feet in front of me
But a million miles apart

[outtro]
Alive at the same time
But a thousand years apart
