My walls are made of concrete
The strongest of them all
They cover my heart safely
And catch me when I fall

You can try but you can't break them
See, I've seen it all before
These walls are here to save me
From the dangers past their doors

Danger was my old friend
We reunited through my tears
And every night my cheeks, stained
With the trace of every fear

How I'd love to break these walls down
I'd love to have you hold me tight
But without these walls of concrete
My careful heart would be in plain sight
