[Verse 1]
I know this girl from way back some time ago
Fine as the autumn sun with a heart of gold, yeah
One day we talked about some men in her past
Cause I was just trying to understand

[B section]
Why it's always like she always tried to hide
What it is she feels or what's on her mind
When it comes to love
She gets so afraid that someone will come
And hurt her again someday

[Chorus]
All of her life she never had
Someone show her what it means
To have or be in real love

[Verse 2]
She never had a man who was kind to her
Never told her I love you without getting hurt, no
Some people say she's bitter some think she's scared
Some people say she thinks nobody cares

[B section]
Now she walks around and protects her heart
Never looks for love
Lives behind a wall
Tell it to herself all men are all the same
Cause that's how it is
And that is such a shame

[Chorus]

    General CommentGreat song. The definition of so many young ladies out there, scared, so they live behind a wall and never realize what may be right in front of them.
