Do you care ?

Do you feel,

when love tries to enter

a man made of steel ?

A fresh new wound

stiched with pride,

beneath the gauze

true feelings hide.

Throwing myself

before your mercy ,

Waiting for the love

that would never hurt me .

Let it out

don't be ashamed ,

if a tear falls

your heart's at blame.

Do you see

where I settle ?

It's beneath

a man of metal .

Tough honors

protect their loves ,

and tough fathers

won't give up.

On believing

in a peace so mild,

On teaching

a learning child .

Bashful inquiries

words go unsaid,

hugs before bed

with teddy bear in hand.

"Night daddy ,

I love you."

Emotions pressed to the steel

and escaping through.

This vessel

iron hard ,

but inside

he has the softest heart.

Do you care?

Do you feel it inside?

A lone tear falls

in a kiss goodnight ..
