about

Puppet on a String is the first single which is part of the album Second Chances.

lyrics

I try I try I really really try
But I lie deny then I justify

Why do you keep me hanging on
Like a puppet on a string
When you know everything
And you put me on your dusty shelf

(Chorus)
Like you're gonna come back for me
Some day later when you're ready
Some day later
You can take me off your shelf
Dust me off yourself
You can call me what you want
Call me what you need
But you know that I care
Know that I'm scared
And I'm unaware
Unprepared

I tried I tried I really really tried
Now I'm fried I'm fried I'm really really fried

Why do you keep me hanging on
Like a puppet on a string
When you know everything
And you put me on your dusty shelf

(Repeat Chorus)

The sun is coming down
The months are passing by
It's getting snowy now
What's gonna happen to me
What's gonna happen to me
A puppet on a string
I'm a puppet on a string
I'm a puppet on a string

(Repeat chorus)
