Touch me
I'm so afraid to draw you close
Hold me
Before my hands fall away

I'll suffocate
If I can't breathe you in
And hold you there
Forever

I left a message at the hotel
They said you checked out
They said you ain't coming back
I tried to call you
But you turned off your cell
And it said at the tone, just leave me alone

And I fall apart at the seams
It seems that I always, always fall apart
But as strong as I am
Why can't I break your heart?

I remember how it used to be
Making love to you all night long
I used to take you in my arms
And hold you there until all my strength was gone
I used to be a man of steel
I used to be a man of steel

I built this prison that I thought was a home
And we both lived here
Guess you were living alone
I'd tear it down if you would only have asked
And I build you a bridge
So you could come back

And I fall apart at the seams
It seems that I always, always fall apart
But as strong as I am
Why can't I break your heart?

I remember how it used to be
Making love to you all night long
I used to take you in my arms
And hold you there until all your fears were gone
I used to be a man of steel
I used to be a man of steel

I used to be a man of steel
I used to take you in my arms
Hey hey, now tell me
Why can't you just break my heart?

I used to be an man of steel
I used to take you in my arms
I loved you from the start
Now you can't tear my world apart

I used to be a man of steel
Now every bit of faith is gone
You used to be so strong
Now you can't even break my heart

I used to be a man of steel
I used to take you in my arms
[Incomprehensible]

And I fall apart at the seams
It seems that I always fall apart
As strong as you am, as strong as I am
Why can't you break your heart?
