Original Song: Ties

by Jon Pinney on March 23, 2013

Well hello! I am now in Washington, D.C., staying with my sister, and loving it here! She wants me to stay here, but I still feel that I need to go to New York City. If after I get there I decide it’s not for me, then I will come back to D.C.

Here is a song that I recorded and posted to my soundcloud account before I moved away, but I never posted it here on the site. It is a little more melancholy and reflective than some of my other songs. I hope you enjoy!

Ties
Music and Lyrics by Jon Pinney

If you could see what I see
When I look at myself
You would know what I feel
Why I can’t trust myself
Cause when you’re near I want you
To feel what I feel
And when you’re near I need you
To understand what ties me to you

Chorus
These ties pull just a little too tight
They keep me coming over here at night
They keep me standing by your side
Oh these ties
That I just can’t seem to break
Help me stop the heartache
And break these ties

When you touch me I pause
And hope it never stops
And when you keep your distance
I just need to close the gap
Cause when you’re near I want you
To feel what I feel
And when you’re near I need you
To understand what ties me to you

Chorus
