"love is patoent love is kind love is slowly loosing your mind"

Ive built this wall around me up so high and so thick
No one could ever make it to the top or break through it
My goal was to keep people out so I wouldn't get hurt
But all I've done is trap myself inside
And it turns out, now I'm the only one who can inflict the pain
And try as I might I can't impart
My plan has hopelessly backfired on me
Leaving me to cause my own misery
This fear, this shyness, this inability
To say what I want to say
Is triumphing over me
Laughing in my face
The walls are made of brick and steel
The ground of concrete
But I remember years ago
When this wall first began to take shape
That in building it I made a few mistakes
So perhaps I can relocate those spots of weakness
Or maybe someone else trying to get through
Will unwittingly happen upon one of them
Because loneliness will be the death of me
Shyness will be my demise
