stretching for you

I’m trying to make my arms longer
To get a hold on you
I want to stretch my legs
so I can run to you
I want to make myself longer
so I can finally reach
Yeah, you’re the one who has me stretching
It’s true, you are stretching me

could just keep on sitting here
watching the world stagnate
instead of gettin up and getting near
instead of doing what it takes

your love is compelling me
in such an undemanding way
to stretch into and finally be
that good idea when I was made

I’m trying to make my arms longer
To get a hold on you
I want to stretch my legs
so I can run to you
I want to make myself longer
so I can finally reach
Yeah, you’re the one who has me stretching
It’s true, you are stretching me

it’d be a shame to just sit here
letting love atrophy
watch everything we hold dear
dry up and blow away

if there’s one thing you’re teaching me
well, there’s ’bout a dozen more
you keep me keeping on reaching
and you’re whom I’m stretching for

I’m trying to make my arms longer
To get a hold on you
I want to stretch my legs
so I can run to you
I want to make myself longer
so I can finally reach
Yeah, you’re the one who has me stretching
It’s true, you are stretching me
