Shut Off This Love

Lyrics & Music by Shannon Marie Burandt
Written on 02/23/2020 in Elgin, Illinois


Minutes crept to hours
Those hours dripped to days
Months that passed in a painful haze
Tiny steps forward
A taste of feeling strong
The breath of life returning to my song
But here comes that second set

All I want to do is hold you
And keep your heart safe
But that something I can’t allow myself to do
How do I shut off this love for you

Being together
Just something we can’t do
The cycle screams only you can help you
Attraction still so strong
I can still feel that pull
A burning desire to help you feel full
And here comes that second set

And all I want to do is ride home with you
And touch you till you sleep
But that something I can’t allow myself to do
How do I shut off this love for you

Taking lessons from the moon
Her distance is her strength
Feel your gravity from a different length
Salvaging our friendship
Bringing balance to our tides
Memories together we can never hide
But here comes that second set

And all I want to do is cry for us
And tell you bout my pain
But that something I can’t allow myself to do
How do I shut off this love for you
I still have so, so much love for you
