A heart is fragile and must be protected...
I didn't want to hurt anymore
So I took the keys and I locked the door
And I built icy walls of brick
So strong and thick were they
That just one look would turn away
Anyone who might cause pain.
Then you came along and acted like
you didn't see the walls, the doors, the lock
And tenderly you lit a candle near a block
And there you knelt
And waited for the ice to melt…
Then there was a warmth my heart felt.
As brick by brick began to disappear
Slowly I began letting go of my fear
And now the icy walls are no more
And you picked the lock and opened the door.
Now a new chapter in my life I begin
I could lose, but I could win
Cause I’m gonna take a chance and let you in
And my fragile heart is exposed once again.
