Heidi when I think of you
I can't help remember everything you put us thru
the waiting and
the watching and
the promises you broke half drunk
falling asleep every night out on the phone

you're an accident waiting to happen
you're a walking hesitation
so far East but never here where I am

you can't hold out forever
cuz I've come to expect more
we both won't always be alive
my heart won't always be open

Heidi when I think of you
I can't help but see a sad alone scared little
nothing
a fear of flying a fear of
change
of being used, unloved a fear of being
out of range of your comfort zone
of this old predictable hole

but not with me
you're not with me

you can't hold out forever
cuz I've come to expect more
we both won't always be alive
my heart won't always be open

    General Commentwell, obviously it's about a girl named Heidi who seems to be a sad case....apparently afraid of taking a chance, and so nothing ever happens in her life.."A fear of change, of being used..." "a fear of being out of range of your comfort zone..."
    Someone tried...."my heart won't always be open"...but apparently her fear was too great.
