Even if you want, you can't touch me now
Leave me if you want, you can't hurt me now

Build them up - high and strong,
So you'll never have to hurt too long
Put them up - til they surround,
And there's no real you left to be found
Hold it up - high above,
No fear of hope or trust or love
Close it up - and hold your ground,
And wait until it's time to finally close it down

Even if you want, you can't touch me now
Leave me if you want, you can't hurt me now

This isn't easy to admit, I don't think I'm believing it
I'm afraid this time
This isn't easy to admit but I don't think I'm believing it
It's not the same this time
This isn't easy to admit but I don't think I'm believing it

Build them up,
So you'll never have to hurt too long
Put them up,
And there's no real you left to be found
Hold it up,
No fear of hope or trust or love
Close it up,
And wait until it's time to finally close it down

This isn't easy to admit but I don't think I'm believing it
I'm afraid this time
This isn't easy to admit but I don't think I'm believing it
It's not the same this time

Even if you want, you can't touch me now
Leave me if you want, you can't hurt me now (I'm afraid)

This isn't easy to admit, but I'm afraid
