Made of glass

It took me far too long to know what’s going on
You caught me off guard, and I see you’re coming strong
Are you really sure you want to open up that door?

Start walking in my shoes, you know your feet will bleed.
Old scars that break open seem to feed your very need.
You take a heavy toll, but you cannot save my soul.

You see through me like I were made of glass
Showing clearly bruises of my past
Forgive me for running, I’m hiding in vain
to protect you from suffer and pain

You see through me like I were made of glass
Way too easily you tear off my mask
Revealing my darkness, I drown in fear
I’ll surrender and you’ll disappear

You conquer my demons, but I am not as tough
Why do you keep digging, is it ever deep enough?
As if you found your bliss in my personal abyss

My armor is cracking, showing a different view
Unravel my despair brings out the best in you
I know you really care, but there are things you can’t repair
