Take care of my heart, for it is quite fragile
Take care of my heart, for it is crying
Take care of my heart, for it is bleeding
My heart, it has never been protected
My heart, it has been thrown around like a plaything
It needs time to grow
It needs time to feel
It needs time to heal.
Will you give me that time?
My heart, it needs a little cage to protect it
Won’t you help me build that little cage?
It doesn’t have to be very big
Oh how my heart has struggled
Oh how my heart has cried
Oh how my heart has bled
Will you take care of my heart?
Will you help keep it from harm?
Will you be gentle with it?
It needs protection.
It needs love.
It needs gentleness.
And above all, it needs care.
