You want my heart,

but I can't hand it over.

I'm so sorry.

I wish I could.

You freely give yours.

Please understand

life's been too hard on me.

I don't trust easy

and never love.

I hold you at a distance

and keep you from coming close.

No one can see through my mask.

I am the ultimate actress,

and this you should know.

So you should also understand,

why my heart's not free.

How it's hard for

you and me just to be.
