Keep me close, my tether to this world is weaker than most

My life borrowed from one who should have come before me

I walk where she should, I have her loving parents

She is watching, waiting, for the time loop to snap

Reclaim what should have been hers.

So keep loving me, keep me close

Still a chance she will jump another timeline.

A borrowed life is known to be short

I took the chance to be here in this moment

To love you, be loved by you.

You are the reason I entered this world

Help me stay beyond the time limit

Hold me close…
