While requirements and goals and competition and expectations
are strung around my neck.
And when the end to my struggles drew near,
My noose was loosened
And wrapped around you instead.
And I'm left with less hope than when I started.
If only I could take it all back,
and be the one still hanging.
Relieve your pressure
Your mounting pressure.
The overwhelming stress
That is building within your life.
And replace it with the peace you once knew
I'd gladly tie it on myself.
