Moratorium

Album: Flavors of Entanglement (2008)
  • I've never been this accountable-less and within
    I've never known focuslessness on any form

    I've never had this lack of ache for dalliance
    To let go and let God in ways I have never even imagined

    [Chorus]
    I declare a moratorium on things relationship
    I declare a respite from the toils of liaison
    I do need a breather from the flavors of entanglement
    I declare a full time out from all things commitment

    I've never let my grasp soften fingers like this
    I've never been careless other-less like autonomy's twin

    [Chorus]

    Ah to breathe
    Stop looking outside
    Stop searching in corners of rooms
    Not my business or timing
    How

    I've never known freedom from intertwining
    I start again this time for keeps in my skin I'm residing

    [Chorus: x2] Writer/s: Alanis Morissette, Guy Sigsworth
