some puppet on a string


Senior Member
It is from a song by Andy Gibb named, " I just want to be your everything"
it says:
Open up the heaven in your heart and let me be
the things you are to me and not some puppet on a string

I want to know the meaning of SOME PUPPET ON A STRING, I suppose the meaning here is that his love is very real, it is not as unreal as a puppet show, anyway I would like being sure.

Thanks in advance indeed!

    Puppets are controlled by someone who manipulates their strings. He doesn't want to be this -- he wants to be real.
