December

You tore down my walls, built up a castle
A fortress of all that you are
It's the color of roses, and strong as a mountain
It's a thousand and ten feet tall

Build me up I'm strong enough
Tear me down but I'll get up
Tell me what I want to hear
Light the spark but kill the embers
Wash the mark, it's still November
I fell in love in December

I wash off my hands, covered in riches
Coveted gold of your lips
I take down my walls, put up your blindness
Of falling in love with a fool

Build me up I'm strong enough
Tear me down but I'll get up
Tell me what I want to hear
Light the spark but kill the embers
Wash the mark, it's still November
I fell in love in December

It was cold at night
The stars and moon were the only light
And you leaned in and you held my hand
And I whispered the words
Don't let go
And you lit a new fire
The sparks of desire
And I never knew what it felt like to love someone until then

So build me up
Or tear me down
Tell me what I want to hear
Light the spark but kill the embers
Wash the mark, it's still November
Right the wrongs and hold my tongue
Breathe it in I'm strong enough
Hold me up I'll learn to fly
Don't look away this is not goodbye
The fire still burns in the embers
I fell in love in December

Thanks for your comment! And yes, I sort of write my lyrics to music either in my head or just pitches on a keyboard :)
