Something In My Heart

Sng Li Rearn

Something in my heart
Suppress an urge to lure
Always a distance apart
Or am I really so pure

Something in my heart
Halts me from getting near
I trust it to be hard
Or is it just my fear

Something in my heart
A lame one to hide my guts
To get her is an art
Failure won't turn you nuts

So go on my friend
Before it is too late
Life might just end
Before you are awake
