you're a keeper
you're the guard of your thoughts
no one shall ever meet them
while your smile keeps its' watch
until one day
when your heart will be broken

i know you’re a keeper
and you might get hurt.

you might get hurt
no mother, child or stranger
to whom you’ve confided your hurt

the sharp shards
the sharp shards of your heart
cause the scars that she’ll find
the beautiful thief
who takes a shot at your heart

she finds you're a keeper
she knows you’ll keep it inside
because you're a keeper
and you might be hurt

so i will go
leave your home
i’ll make my own
and we will see how we’re on our own
just let it be?!
one day the mirror will show me
that i'm the beautiful thief
and i'll get back and find
that you are mine
you are mine
for all the roles we’ve played

you are a keeper
i know that now
that you are a keeper
i know i’ll keep you by my side
because you are a keeper
so please, give in to me
