In every heart there is room
A sanctuary safe and strong
To heal the wounds from lovers past
Until a new one comes along
I spoke to you in cautious tones
You answered me with no pretense
And still I fear I've said too much
My silence is my self defense

For every time I've held a rose
It seems only felt the thorn
And so it goes and it goes
And so will you soon, I suppose
But my silence made you leave
Then that would be my worst mistake
So I will share this room with you
And you can have this heart to break

And this is why my eyes are closed
It's just as well for all I've seen
And so it goes and so it goes
And you're the only one who knows
So I would choose to be with you
That's if the choice ere mine to make
But can make decision, too
And you can have this heart to break

And this is why my eyes are closed
It's just as well for all I've seen
And so it goes and so it goes
And you're the only one
Who knows
