Walls Around My Heart

Walls back up

Don't hurt me again

Do I let you in

Let you win?

You don't care

And yet I do

Let me stop

Caring for you

Walls up

Guard too

Protecting myself

From all of you

You left

Broke my heart

And I was numb

But now I'm getting better



Don't come around

I'll stand my ground

Keep away

No broken hearts

Friends we'll stay

But my feelings,

I'll shut away

I won't let myself care



Because you don't deserve it

More pain than good

But I will hide it under a hood

Nothing matters

No feelings

No drama 

Just fun

And games

Because now

I don't care


I have walls around my heart
