Waltzing In

by Jay Stansfield

/

about

This is a song about a broken relationship,
Sitting in the middle of thousands and thousands and thousands of pounds worth of debt,
Contemplating suicide,
With the strength of a woman behind you.

lyrics

Carve your name into my arm,
Pin me up against this wall,
Hear me calling when I fall,
Crush my soul.

Steal my joy and strip me down,
Leave me feeling lost and lonely,
This place used to feel so homely,
Shush my goal.

And you come waltzing in like a whirlwind,
Taking all of my privacy,
Under your wing,
I go waltzing out of my mental health,
You cannot see the woods for the trees,
Just yourself,
Who do we blame for the pain?

What became of us eventually?
We became far too outspoken,
Our love was completely broken,
Bless your soul.

Tie my hands behind my back,
Leave me on the kitchen table,
We were happy, warm and able,
Now we’re cold.

And you come waltzing in like a whirlwind,
Taking all of my privacy,
Under your wing,
I go waltzing out of my mental health,
You cannot see the woods for the trees,
Just yourself,
Who do we blame for the pain?

Carve your name into my arm,
Pin me up against this wall,
Hear me calling when I fall,
Crush my soul.

I like night time.
