A song about a former love who went away on an extended trip, and what runs through your mind when your life's anchor is torn from its tether.


you were in my flow
the only place i'd go
when i was waiting for the sock to drop
soon we'd get to know
the feeling of our glow
and the magic effect of our sweat

and then you'd say
you're a part of me
but i have to leave

you make it hard to breathe....but

this is how it goes
when you go
from the centre of my life

this is how it goes
and you know
you're the centre of my life

and don't you know
when you go,
all is lost
you broke the centre of my life

we don't have much time
so say what's on your mind
and i will promise everything is fine
send you on your way,
prepare you for the fray
as much as i could anyway
