Unchained Heart

I made peace with the fact
that I would always be alone
I built a wall around myself
a wall made out of stone.
Hiding in my concrete jail
not letting anyone in
because love was always a gamble
that I could never win.
My heart yearned for someone
but I kept it wrapped in chains
because I would rather a life of lonliness
than expose myself to pain.
Then you came along
and tore down my walls
I'm taking a chance on you
for love I'm risking it all.
I'm still a little afraid
but I want to give you my soul
it was once broken and shattered
but you have made it whole.
I'm dying a little inside
everyday that we're apart
I feel it in every nerve
and every beat of my unchained heart.
