Push And Pull
Author: Maranda Berkley


I can't stop the rush of feeling I have for you
Now that you've been in my life
Without you, I feel incomplete
Others will ask about you
But I won't know what to say
I'll feel dead inside
Craving to feel a fire
To heat my lonely room
I'd kill for feelings that aren't mixed
For lips that aren't closed
Words that aren't hushed
Hands that don't push the other way
You ask me to put my heart to a stop
But I need to turn to a friend
Someone for a gentle word to lend
But it always goes unnoticed
When I need you most
I'm always put on hold for your own
What you need is what's important
What I need is just pretend
Even if it kills me
You'll still forget
Tell me there is nothing you can do to stop
So I'll go on hurting
My tears still falling
I'll wonder how you can call me a friend
I feel so distant
I'm afraid to feel
Too scared you can't take it all
And I'll be left alone again
Everyone around me senses something's wrong
Every time you push
Further down I fall
I don't know what's too much
If what I give isn't enough
I don't know if you need to know
If I'll turn you away
Or finally get you to pull
I know what I feel is true
I need you in my life each day
I remember when you needed me too
But I have to back off in hopes
That you and I will return that way
