"Yo-yo" as written by and Anne Preven Scott Cutler....
It's broken
I know what you want
I'm not a Yo-Yo
I'm not a thing you let go...

I keep hangin around
Got some attachment to you
Way down is still where you get through
I've told myself it isn't right but it 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
I can't let that hope in
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 and
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 worng
Yet I've 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 just want to swing me up and back
And I've got to move forward
So I've cut the cord

It's broken
And I can't let that hope in
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 and
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...
Didn't I adore you
Didn't I bent to 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 you...
Didn't I bent 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

    General CommentI think it's about how she knows that her boyfriend doesn't care about her and she knows that she has to leave him but she can't because she's attached to him and when they're together, she changes her mind.
