Dead Bolt

No, no don't you think me cold
when such a story has been told
I lead with 'that's the way life goes'
I just can't take every hurt
keep black and blue
beneath my shirt
that's not giving in nor letting go, no
what good does it do yourself
or her or anybody else
when you box your heart away?
suddenly every face you see
is a killer or one to be
and you vow to have your day
that's when you've given in
when you've let go
that's when you dead bolt
that's when you've given in
when you've let go
that's when your heart does it slow
some people just don't care for others
won't permit themselves to
don't let that stitch up your smile
don't let that make one of you
that's when you've given in
that's when you've let go
that's when you dead bolt
that's when you've given in
when you've let go
that's when your heart
does it slow...
