Poetry & Literature / agradecería si me ayudaran con esta frase, porque no me gusta como suena literlamente
English term or phrase: I know I’m usually hanging on
You might have had me open
But I must be going because
I got life to do
I know I’m usually hanging on
I used to hate to see you gone
But this time it’s different
I don’t even feel the distance

i know i’m usually hanging on
se que normalmente (por lo general) me quedo/te espero


Explanation:
me parece que en este contexto da la idea de esperar o quedarse en algun lugar, cerca de alguien. de todos modos, parece que la persona ya no lo hace más...no se si tal vez hasta no me animaría a deci: 'se que solía quedarme/esperarte'
