Like a watch that I wound
Until I broke a spring
Like a lock in a door
In which I've broken off the key
Now I'm holding her heart and I'm risking everything
Let me be true, and let me be gentle
Where there is a gentle need
And let me love this girl
Let me love her carefully

Like a watch that I wound
Until I broke a spring
Like a lock in a door
In which I've broken off the key
Now I'm holding her heart and I'm risking everything
Let me be true, and let me be gentle
Where there is a gentle need
And let me love this girl
Let me love her carefully

All the promises I've broken
With every other word that I have spoken
Let this be the one I never break
A promise I've made carefully

A bird learns to fly and then it learns to sing
Like a child reaching out to everything she sees
Now I'm holding her heart and I'm risking everything
Let me be true, and let me be gentle
Where there is a gentle need
And let me love this girl
Let me love her carefully
Let me love her carefully
