Chinese Finger Cuffs

Chinese Finger Cuffs

A Poem by ericdeben

It always turns out better when you just relax.

My heart is beating faster than it should be.
My hands are shaking.
I tell people they do this naturally.

God, just help me get through the week.
Through the week, oh. No, oh, no.

I want to get out in the end
I want to get out alive.
I shouldn't keep playing offence.
But anxiety says I have to try.

Just relax, live and let die.

Breathe. In. Out.
You're gonna be okay.
Breathe. In. Out.
You'll make it through the day.

Just relax, live, and let die.
Trust me, you'll be fine.

Breathe. In. Out.
You're gonna be okay.
Breathe. In. Out.
You'll make it through today.

Author's Note

This song is meant to be played on the ukulele. I haven't figured out the chords for it, but I know how I'd like it to sound.
