lyrics

What you offered, I never thought I needed
But I couldn't have needed anything more
And what I avoided was the very thing
The very thing you daily bring

Protection
Protection

And all of the walls that people build around me
Well, I would've jumped them all alone
But it's good to know when danger surrounds me
I don't have to take it on my own

Protection
Protection

You take the place of the very people
Who should've protected me every day
I learned to take the world on solo
I couldn't've had it any other way

Protection
Protection

And all the bravado I've put on down the years
I couldn't've put on a better show
And every man I had to let go of
Knew little of my needs like you know

You're the woman and I'm the man
You touch me with a mother's hand
And would it kill me to say to you
Once in a while... 'I love you?'

I suppose I do...
...as much as a girl like me can do
I love you
...the only way I know how to
I love you
