Alone I battle the world.
Guarded by a armor I made myself.
I have fallen many times.
But I`ll never give up.
Stop stripping my of my armor.
You are making me weak.
Don`t let me show you that I have a heart
or that I get nervous when you speak.
I won`t admit that I need someone to tell me I`ll be alright.
I won`t admit I need someone to keep me warm at night.
I am not suppose to let you past my brick wall.
But your eyes seem to know it all.
You are too good for me.
Please go away.
I`m not ready now and I won`t be any day.
All you want is love,
the real kind.
Not my body, but my soul.
Leave me now before I fall.
Don`t hold me in your arms.
Set me free to face the world.
Don`t even speak because I know what you`ll say.
You`ll respect me, your say everything so perfectly
and I will always want to stay.
Leave me now.
Not another second has to pass.
Your making me weak.
And weakness never lasts.
