"I Want to Protect You" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
Not much of a man
But still I am a man
And you bring out somethin inside me
A perfect little diamond
A fragile little fire
And everything good in the world
To me

I want to protect you
I want you to be safe and sound
At night in this world
Such a delicate girl needs someone
To look out for the wolves
I want to protect you

I say some stupid shit
Don't mean a word of it
You know I got a lot of love inside me
This world's an ugly place
For such a pretty face
They're comin at you from all sides
But they gotta get through me

I want to protect you
I want you to be safe and sound
At night in this world
Such a delicate girl needs someone
To look out for the wolves
I want to protect you

Not many understand
But I'm your biggest fan
The savage fools cannot appreciate
The miracle of you
How could it be true
You're everything good in the world

I want to protect you
I want you to be safe and sound
At night in this world
Such a delicate girl needs someone
To look out for the wolves
I want to protect you

I want to protect you

Fellas, just look at her (aww)
We gotta keep an eye out on her behalf (yeah)

    General CommentIt is indeed a beautiful little song.

    What I find interesting about it is the duality of it. Listening to it I could easily imagine it being sung to a lover. Or to a daughter. That stunning quality of tenderness to it - knocks me out.

    General CommentSays E of this song:

    "I was getting older and I noticed distinct new feelings in myself, such as the desire to protect. So I wrote a song about it. Your little man is growing up."
