Letra Thread - Keane

Hanging by a thread connecting me to you 

To who I've always been, to all we said we'd do 


A fine thread, not tough enough to bear 

The weight of desire and despair 

Untended, the fibres start to fray 

The long years of workin' as one were just washed away 


Well, maybe it was just our time 

Forgive me, remember that I'm 

A good man, just not good enough 

Don't hate me, I was just in love 

And hanging by a thread 


Hold me in your arms where everything made sense 

Where I knew right from wrong, could live with restlessness 

All my life I won't forget the pain in your eyes 

I'm still scrubbin' at the stain of this mess 

Wish you could understand 

The madness that grabbed at my throat and clung to my hands 



 
Well, maybe it was just our time 

Forgive me, remember that I'm 

A good man, just not good enough 

Don't hate me, I was just in love and caught in my own net 


Hanging, left spinning in the wind 

Slidin', you grab at anything 

Just lost our way 

We just lost our way 


You try to be all things to all men 

And wind up with a love that's spread too thin 

Just lost our way 

The walls that we built were just washed away 


Well, maybe it was just our time 

Forgive me, remember that I'm 

A good man, just not good enough 

Don't hate me, I was just in love and hangin' by a thread 


I don't know why I said I'm not in love with you
