Don't let love in


What was I thinking tonight?
I let my cold heart melt, I let my emotions get the better of me,
Why did I let this happen, I let somebody  touch my heart
I thought it was broke, I thought it was dead
It wasn’t dead, just hidden in my head...

Those sweet words said the other night
I remembered them and they gave me a fright
I swore off love long ago, to practice death inside my soul
Oh how it hurts, at any age, to feel the pain of love again

He picked up on every subtle expression, he knew right away
He called me out on my feelings
And told me to back up, and take it slow
No strings, no relationship, we agreed on that right from go

Maybe I should run scared now, for I am headed for the pit
Disaster looms under every rock, hidden deep within my soul
God I swore to be bitter till the end
Love is nipping at my heels and I better kill it before it kills me, again...
