you’re not technically gone, ‘cause you were never here
and I loved you off and on there for a couple years,
though I’ve grown fond of being alone,
I still think maybe I could hold my own…

I don’t mean to meddle now in your affairs,
but I see you’ve settled down, why did you settle there?
is it comfortable after what you’ve know,
are you with someone who can hold their own?
+++ ’cause if you put me in I could hit it out,
+++ they’d set’em up, we’d knock’em right back down,
+++ movin’ on to the big leagues now,

no servant for your silver throne,
you need somebody who can hold their own…
there’ve been some pretty ones who couldn’t think too fast,
and the clever ones never seem to last,
so I was wondering if your past has shown
you need a lover who can hold his own?
+++ and if you put me in I could hit it out,
+++ they’d set’em up, we’d knock’em right back down,
+++ movin’ on to the big leagues now,

no servant for your silver throne,
or a puppy you can throw a bone,
you need somebody who can hold..,
I thought maybe I could hold my own…
