I've been keeping you at bay for so long
So long that your bow is already melting
I know you wanted to sail the seas alone
and clearly I ain't keeping you from sinking.

Forgive my fingers for unfolding you
In the hopes that I can shift your view.
But the creases were already there
that if I leave you, you'll fold back, you'll repair.

So I am setting you free from my selfish hands
Now drift away, conquer new lands!
Let the tide take you, my beloved paper boat
You won't need me, but if you do, just leave a note.
