By a thread

I dreamed about you last night
although I said, I’d never – go down that road
The sweetest pearl – in your lobe, in a crowded room
Please tell me now, where did you go?

When your hand touches mine, I hang on by a thread
I tried to explain but you didn’t hear what I said

My dear, I hang on by a thread, I think I´m losing my head
I hang on by a thread
My dear, I hang on by a thread and I’m scared to death
I hang on by a thread, I hang on by a thread

I kept this picture – but I don’t know why
I just can’t seem to let it go
My eyes do follow you – around the room
Your tiny steps and that painted toe

When you hand touches mine, I hang on by a thread
I tried to explain but you didn’t hear what I said

My dear, I hang on by a thread, I’m losing my head
I hang on by a thread
My dear, I hang on by a thread and I’m scared to death
I hang on by a thread
My dear, I hang on by a thread and I’m scared to death
I hang on by a thread
I hang on by a thread
