- What Matters
I built my barriers, high and strong.
Then I let everything go wrong.
You helped me see you're not like them,
And now it's happening once again.
You promised you'd never let me fall,
As I sit atop this crumbling wall.
You hold me tightly to your chest
And as I hear your every breath
I'm falling quickly now; I'm scared.
For my heart was unprepared.
I wasn't ready to jump so fast,
And now I know, I can't go back.
My heart was scattered everywhere,
And yet you never seemed to care.
All the pieces, broke and bruised,
And you still want me; torn up, confused.
You just helped me bit by bit,
Putting the pieces wherever they fit.
You got me to let down my guard
And I let you see inside my heart.
What you see there, I don't know,
But if I were you, I'd let me go.
But it didn't take you long at all
To break through my guarded wall.
