Don't you come around my house, my house
With your flowers in hand saying that you missed me
I don't really care that you never felt scared
Or so close to anyone else until you kissed me

I have heard that line before
The dick who said it ended up walking out my door
(So don't take it personal)

But I gotta protect my heart
'Cause if I let you in I might fall for you and break again
I been building up these walls for far too
Long to have 'em crumble down now
Boy, don't even start
'Cause I'm gonna protect my heart

Don't go talkin' 'bout my life, my life
Saying you're gonna stick around when I know you're gonna leave
Don't you dare stand there with that look on your face
Like you're in love with me, if you want me to believe

And I'm sorry if you think I'm bitchy and cold
But being warm and getting burned was getting so-oh old
(Baby, it's not your fault)

But I gotta protect my heart
'Cause if I let you in I might fall for you and break again
I been building up these walls for far too
Long to have 'em crumble down now
Boy, don't even start
'Cause I'm gonna protect my heart

And I'm keeping you, keeping you there, at arms length
Keeping you, keeping you there, just far enough away
Keeping you, keeping you there, away from my heart
Keeping you, keeping you there, don't you even start

I had a boy who was dangerous
W-walked on me and my heart was crushed
He was cool, he was fly, he was so damn fine
And I let him come in and take all of mine
But I can't let you roll like that
I'll cut that shit off just like snap
If you gimme one sniff that you actin' up
I do what I gotta do to protect my heart

But I gotta protect my heart
'Cause if I let you in I might fall for you and break again
I been building up these walls for far too
Long to have 'em crumble down now
Boy, don't even start
'Cause I'm gonna protect my heart
