If i let you in past these walls I built for years

would i reget it when the walls start to crumble

or would my trust in you loose its shape

If i let you in would you stay

longer than just a while

I want to let you in so badly

but its going to take everything I have

because baby the past hasnt treated me so great

baby my hearts been through the ringer

since no one seems to give a damn

feel like I walked through hell and back

if i asked you to wait just a little bit longer

would you become impatient and walk away from it all

or would you say I can wait ..

As these tears start running down my face

knowing maybe I can honestly trust you

with everything i have

I may not be all that you have pictured

but darling am I worth after all this time

youve waited

Ive kept these walls up after all this time

knowing that it was the only place

I felt safe

if I let you in would I be safe in your arms

or would this risk i take

change everything including a place i felt safe

baby I think its time,

to let you in because I feel so safe in your arms

Please dont let me down

baby please dont let me fall
