​Puppet Loosely Strung

This song is by The Correspondents and appears on the album Puppet Loosely Strung (2014).

Let me put myself in your shoes as a puppet loosely strung.
Around you they were so confused a faulty man could have so much fun.
They read your smiles, nothing but teeth
Looked at you with pity first, then disbelief.

Let me put myself in your shoes as a puppet loosely strung.
They may think they'd never choose to be the man that you've become.
You never felt the need to conform
We get drunk or high to feel what you've felt since you've been born.

I'm tied to so many things I don't need to do.
I'll loosen my strings to feel more like you.
I'm tied to so many things I don't need to do,
I'll loosen my strings to feel more like you.

Let me put myself in your shoes as a puppet loosely strung.
Did you feel the weight of other's views, or was their ignorance a source of fun?
I hated the whispers in the street
Do you oppose a greeting, pulling the rug beneath their feet?

I'm tied to so many things I don't need to do.
I'll loosen my strings to feel more like you.
I'm tied to so many things I don't need to do.
I'll loosen my strings to feel more like you.

In the past you would have been seen as a family's disgrace,
Now they think you're putting on a brave face
They might fear that one day they wear your shoes
But you're the one who's laughing, you had nothing to lose

They just couldn't see, that it was me needing you, and not you needing me
They just couldn't see, that a puppet loosely strung is not who I wanna be
They just couldn't see, that it was me needing you, and not you needing me
They just couldn't see, that a puppet loosely strung is not who I wanna be

I'm tied to so many things I don't need to do.
I'll loosen my strings to feel more like you.
I'm tied to so many things I don't need to do,
I'll loosen my strings to feel more like you.

They just couldn't see, that it was me needing you, and not you needing me
They just couldn't see, that a puppet loosely strung is not who I wanna be
They just couldn't see, that it was me needing you, and not you needing me
They just couldn't see, that a puppet loosely strung is not who I wanna be
