Hearts in Armor

Trisha Yearwood

One more day my heart's in armor,
Though I meant to let you in.
In an effort not to harm it,
I have missed my chance again.

I was singing when I freed you,
But my pride was just a veil.
I pretended not to need you --
Now my heart tells a different tale.

And every hour that goes by,
The harder I become --
Because I let that well run dry;
Because I left you unanswered.

Like a fool I kept my secret,
When it made no sense to try.
Now I can no longer keep it,
For it's late and the moon is high.

And every hour that goes by,
The harder I become --
Because I let that well run dry;
Because I left you unanswered.

One more day my heart's in armor,
Though I did not see it then.
I would finish what you started,
If I had that chance again.

I would finish what you started,
If I had that chance again.
