Imma let folks interpret this HOWEVER THEY WANT, lol. Clearly I'm in a cheeky mood this morning.

Lyrics: 

VERSE 1
I remember the day
That we first met
Shiny and new
My favorite balloon yet
We had adventures
Went for walks in moonlit sand
Just me and my balloon
Side by side hand in hand

VERSE 2
But now you have gone limp
That shine has started to dull
And your incessant squeaking
Gets in my skull
I think this party's over
You've really lost your charm
Sick and tired of seeing you
Hanging off my arm

CHORUS
And now I realize
I'm talking to a balloon
Gonna let go of your string
Watch you fly off to the moon
You're so full of hot air
And always popped too soon
Think it's time I found myself
A new balloon

BRIDGE
Balloons are everywhere
I can get them by the bunch
But I can go without them
Just join my girls for lunch

VERSE 3
Some say that balloons
Are way too overrated
They're delicate and fragile
They quickly get deflated
I can take 'em or leave 'em
But sometimes they're kind of fun
Just don't hold on for too long
Know when it's time to run

CHORUS
And now I realize
I'm talking to a balloon
Gonna let go of your string
Watch you fly off to the moon
You're so full of hot air
And always popped too soon
Think it's time I found myself
A new balloon

Balloons are overrated. But your lyric is great. The underlying theme is strength.

Wonderfully vivid images that can be taken literally as is or for most of us as a clever metaphor for love gone wrong. Great chorus!

What a perfect set of lyrics! Now usually I am prone to a literal interpretation of lyrics but this one, wow, this one is clearly talking about something else!! Love the attitude and a pretty good bit of advice in there! Excellent take on the prompt! And thanks for running the superskirmish this weekend!!

Fantastic take! Yeah, I definitely know some balloons out there too. A very-well put together lyric, I really like the sarcasm.
