Padlocks

 

Verse One

Loving them was like clasping on to sand

I’m not strong because I had to be

I’m strong because I am

But all the strength I have

They still slipped through my grasp

 

Pre-chorus

Starting over’s hard

With new cracks in your heart

I loved them to my detriment

I’m devil-crossed and Heaven-sent

The sad thing is I’d be there now

If I weren’t banished from those towns

Born and made with staying power

Born and made with staying power

 

Chorus

So let’s be like two padlocks

Connected to each other

All the force they can muster

Won’t make us come undone

 

So let’s be like two padlocks

And when they say to let go

We’ll just say, "We can’t though"

Like two becoming one

 

Verse Two

Loving her was like clasping on to sand

You’re not strong because you had to be

You’re strong because you are

But all the strength you have

She still left you with scars

 

Pre-chorus

Starting over’s hard

With new cracks in your heart

You loved her to your detriment

You’re devil-crossed and Heaven-sent

The sad thing is you’d be there now

If you weren’t banished from that town

We were made with staying power

We were made with staying power

 

Chorus

So let’s be like two padlocks

Connected to each other

All the force they can muster

Won’t make us come undone

 

So let’s be like two padlocks

And when they say to let go

We’ll just say, "We can’t though"

Like two becoming one

 

Bridge

Some people choose to drift apart when they can’t control the tides

We’ve been fighting against currents every moment of our lives

But I’ve learned to watch them float away if they don’t want to stay

Do you want to stay?

 

Chorus

So let’s be like two padlocks

Connected to each other

All the force they can muster

Won’t make us come undone

 

So let’s be like two padlocks

And when they say to let go

We’ll just say, "We can’t though"

Like two becoming one

 

Ending

Some people choose to drift apart when they can’t control the tides

We’ve been fighting against currents every moment of our lives
