lyrics

3. CATCH AND RELEASE

I’ve learned to throw my love away at anything that moves
For that’s the sort of target that my love best suits
I’ve learned a lot about the game and catch and release
And that the way I threw my love you could not keep your grip on me

I’ve learned to drain me eyes, lower my shoulders, run in place
And that to have the sun on your back just leaves shadows on your face
I can throw it with a sweetness and abandon, through and through
For I’ve learned to throw my love away at anyone but you

And I’ll learn to live within the arms of somebody new
And I will fill this empty place, and lick clean my open wounds
Yes, I’ve learned to throw my love away at anyone I choose
And I will never again give me love to anyone like you

I’ve learned a lot about the game and catch and release
And that the way I threw my love you could not keep your grip on me
Yes, I’ve learned to throw my love away at anything that moves
For I have learned to throw my love away at anyone but you
