lyrics

So there's my heart
I keep it in this box.

As you can see it has been scratched a few times before
But I won't be so careless with it any more
And it means I never cry
Though at times I seem cold

And if you weep onto my shoulder I'll have nothing to say
But if you just wait for a minute I'll be back right away
With this heart for you.
We'll keep yours brand new.

But don't you dare take it out without telling me first
I need to be fully prepared for that kind of thing
Or else I could be crippled by the slightest sting
I keep the box velvet lined
I hope that you don't mind

You seem like someone who could take care of this.
But I've trusted each girl since my very first kiss
See there's chunks missing from when I ripped it back
From lovers when it turned out they just wanted to attack
Though you are the first to come to stay
Without me leading the way

So look after me and I will look after you
And we'll put photos in the box of the memories that pass
And I assure you, this high quality box will last
With your heart inside
Safe and dry

Keep your heart inside
Holding on to mine.
