Storyteller

Caught you in a story where you didn't belong
Caught you in a story where you didn't belong
Was I wrong to make you stay?
Were you already on your way?

Met you in the middle of a mem'ry
The stories that we tell ourselves to write
Pressed you in a book so I could hold you
Like a poem inside
Read your words like they were really something
Carried you through all these city streets
My nose against the pages when you'd kiss me
I could never believe that I'd

Caught you in a story where you didn't belong
Caught you in a story where you didn't belong
Was I wrong to make you stay?
Were you already on your way?

You were bound to break
Undercover you could hide away
But I could make you bend and pretend
That this would never end
Then you closed yourself like you closed the door
With my fragile heart left ripped and torn
Now you're placed high on the shelf
Waiting for somebody else and I

Caught you in a story where you didn't belong
Caught you in a story where you didn't belong
Was I wrong to make you stay?
Were you already on your way?

When I write I find you sliding
Through the lines that I'm defining
You are more than I can say
For you I was always fighting
Did you know, were you lying
Are you just a storyteller too?

'Cause you caught me in a story and it won't be long
'Til you read about a girl who wandered into a song
And I will try to let you know
That it's alright, you're free to go
It's alright, it's alright
