It's broken
I know what you want
I'm not a yo yo
I'm not a thing you let go

I keep hanging around
Got some attachment to you
Way down is still where you get through
I told myself it isn't right but isn't wrong
Yet I've found
The more you hot and cold me
The more I need protecting
Can't hear myself singing the same sad song

Oh, and it's not hard to figure out
Why I am never too far from the floor?
You can only take me up and down
I've got to move forward
So I've cut the cord

It's broken, could let that open
I know what you want
I'm not a yo-yo
I'm not a thing you let go
You're leaving me no choice then
I'll be on my way
I'm not a yo-yo
I don't come back when I'm thrown

I keep hanging around
But can't defy gravity
Rebound every time you touch me
I've told myself it isn't right but it isn't wrong
Yeah, I found the more you high and low me
The more I need stability
Can't hear myself singing this for too long

Oh, and now you've come to face the fact
But I'm running fast as I can to the door
'Cause you wanna swing me up and back
And I've got to move forward
So I've cut the cord

It's broken, could let that open
I know what you want
I'm not a yo-yo
I'm not a thing you let go
You're leaving me no choice then
I'll be on my way
I'm not a yo-yo
I don't come back when I'm thrown
I'll be on my way
I'm not a yo-yo
I don't come back when I'm thrown

Didn't I adore you? Didn't I keep you satisfied
Didn't I?
Didn't I assure you for every climb there is a downward slide
That I can't ride?
Didn't I adore you? Didn't I bend to keep you satisfied?
Didn't I?
Didn't I assure you for every climb there is a downward slide?
I had to cut the cord

It's broken
I know what you want
I'm not a yo-yo
I'm not a thing you let go
You're leaving me no choice then
I'll be on my way
I'm not a yo-yo
I don't come back when I'm thrown
I know what you want
I'm not a yo-yo
I'm not a thing you let go

I'm not a thing you let go
I'm not a thing you let go
I'm not a thing you let go
I'm not a thing you let go
Ohh no, no
I'll be on my way
I'm not a yo-yo
I'm not a thing you let go
I'm not a thing you let go
I'm not a thing you let go
I'm not a thing you let go
I'm not a thing you let go
