If I could ever unchain this heart,
Love could come all the way in.
And if I could ever unchain this heart,
I'd never be lonely again.
I'm drawn to the fire, but
each time I turn,
Keeping my distance so I don't get burned.
Now I'm caught between loving, and leaving again;
I'm not scared of losing, just afraid to win...
You gave me shelter when my life was bare,
You took me in, taught me to care...
