She was alone for so long
That her heart built a wall
And all who tried to get in
Couldn't even go near

Yet deep inside that fortress
Was a lost little girl
Crying out to be seen
And to love tenderly

He had journeyed so far
No-one's fool would he be
And every moment he swore
That his heart would stay free

Yet deep inside that wanderer
Was a lost little boy
Crying out to be seen
And to love tenderly

Seems to me the child in all of us
Is not so very small
Longing to lie in arms of love
And give our one and all

And it's such a precious blessing
When real love comes to call
But we'd rather build a fortress
Than break down all our walls

She fell apart at the seams
When his love came along
He didn't know what to feel
'Cause he felt it so strong

Seems to me the child in all of us
Is not so very small
Longing to lie in arms of love
And give our one and all

And it's such a precious blessing
When real love comes to call
But we'd rather build a fortress
Than break down all our walls

And it's such a precious blessing
When real love comes to call
But we'd rather build a fortress
Than break down all our walls

Yes we'd rather build a fortress
Than break down all our walls
