There's a cage in my chest made of bones,
And it's keeping my heart locked in place.
My mistakes slowly welded it closed
So I wouldn't throw my love away.
Are there ways to slip under those bars?
Will the past be too hard to escape?
I'm attracted by all that you are,
Not the flattering words you could say.
There's attachment I know that you felt,
But I claimed not to reciprocate.
Now, the truth is, you made my heart melt.
I just hope that it isn't too late.
There's a rush that I feel in my head
Every time I am caught in your stare.
Though, I wish you could hold me instead,
I'll be happy if you're always there.
I don't know how to make you believe
That I'm still on the end of the line.
If I just got my heart on my sleeve,
Then I know that I could make you mine.
