LIKE A RUBBER BAND

By LYRICS PICKS
V1
You came into my life,
stretched me like a rubber band.
Extended my boundaries,
tested my limits
And I liked it...
I wanted to know about you,
all about you,
and I liked you...
Yes, I liked you very much...
I think I loved you...
I wanted you to love me too,
so I let you pull me...

V2
I bent over backward
to show you treasures within...
Oh, yes - you just reached in.
Took what you wanted.
And I liked it.
I liked you pulling me...
We were two.
You pulled, I pushed.
I stretched, you didn't.
You had me on your line.
And for you it was just fine.

CHORUS
Pushed me to my limit
but I didn't snap.
I was taut, stretched tight
in your grip.
And I liked it!
Your pull on me -
You pulled on me -
I liked it there…
I did, you gave me more -
'till I was sore...

V3
I was stretched taut but I didn't snap -
Not then, not yet.
I stretched up so far,
but I couldn't reach your bar.
It kept moving higher
but I didn't snap -
Not then, not yet.
I extended out
to meet your desires
and fit the shape of your wishes.
You pulled me this way,
and teased me that.

V4
My edges started to fray,
because I started to think
that it was all for you
only for you...
I was stretched so thin
I was out on a line...
I couldn't see me,
and it was not fine.
I'd pulled myself all out of shape
for you, for you, all for you.
So far to reach your moving bar.

CHORUS
Pushed me to my limit
but I didn't snap.
I was taut, stretched tight
in your grip.
And I liked it!
Your pull on me -
You pulled on me -
I liked it there…
I did, you gave me more -
'till I was sore...

V5
I woke up one day, to find
I could not extend any more -
not one little bit.
Malleable no more,
I no longer had any core.
You just let go when you saw
I couldn't go that far.
I didn't snap at the release
of your weight, your control,
but bent out of shape
I was, worn and frayed
and I realised that I
should not have stayed
in your thrall, so long.

CHORUS
Pushed me to my limit
but I didn't snap.
I was taut, stretched tight
in your grip.
And I liked it!
Your pull on me -
You pulled on me -
I liked it there…
I did, you gave me more -
'till I was sore...

BRIDGE
I made myself small, for you.
I made myself big, for you.
I described circles in the air, for you
and you didn't see.
You couldn't really see
ME.

CHORUS
Pushed me to my limit
but I didn't snap.
I was taut, stretched tight
in your grip...
And I liked it!
Your pull on me -
You pulled on me -
I liked it there…
I did, you gave me more -
'till I was sore...

V6
So I didn't snap, I wouldn't snap.
I snapped back
and I flew. You see.
You knew, deep in your heart,
you knew.
I flew because of you.
You stretched me to my limit
but I slipped off your finger -
Oh, so gently, but I took off
with such power.
Not your puppet any more.

V7
And I flew through the wind - it blew me free.
And where I went, you couldn't follow.
And the view was great!
I put everything out along my line for you,
looking for some kind of sign
that you loved me,
that you really loved me.
You stretched me to my limit
but I snapped off with such power.
Not your puppet any more.
And I flew through the wind - it lifted me free.
And where I soared, you couldn't follow.
For us there was no tomorrow.

CHORUS
Pushed me to my limit
but I didn't snap.
I was taut, stretched tight
in your grip.
And I liked it!
Your pull on me -
You pulled on me -
I liked it there…
I did, you gave me more -
'till I was sore...

BRIDGE
You stretched me to my limit.
Not your puppet any more
And I flew through the wind - it lifted me free.
And where I soared, you couldn't follow.
For us there was no tomorrow.

CHORUS x 2 + FADE-OUT
Pushed me to my limit
but I didn't snap.
I was taut, stretched tight
in your grip.
And I liked it!
Your pull on me -
You pulled on me -
I liked it there…
I did, you gave me more -
'till I was sore...

CHORUS
Pushed me to my limit
but I didn't snap.
I was taut, stretched tight
in your grip.
And I liked it!
Your pull on me -
You pulled on me -
I liked it there…
I did, you gave me more -
'till I was sore...
