don't touch my heart

don't touch my heart
its thorny and its dark
it howls at the moon
and has a nasty bark

don't touch my heart
it will bite whosoever near
not out of fury
purely out of fear

don't touch my heart
it can't return the thought
it will only hurt you
if you manage to get caught

don't touch my heart
even if you wanted to
its been patched together
with nothing that is true

don't touch my heart
love won't heal it today
its not broken, nor bleeding
it just healed the wrong way

don't touch my heart
not now, at the very least
maybe try tomorrow
to tame the battered beast

don't touch my heart
i gravely started to warn
but you ignored my cries
and tried to fix what was torn

don't touch my heart
i attempted to forbid
i'm so glad you ignored me
it grew lighter when you did
