"Shape of my Heart" as written by and Charles Fink....
Oh when I look to the shape of my heart,
It's separated only by scars
That cut in and cut out
Oh and leave me without
Oh a heart that functions at all.

And when I look to the shape of the sky,
I give thanks for this hollow chest of mine;
That I no longer feel
The great weight of ordeals
That can make this life so unkind

Oh and if there's any love in me,
Don't let it show.
Oh and if there's any love in me,
Don't let it grow.

Oh when the wild was all covered by snow,
I forgot the colors that the grass tend to grow.
Oh the trees were all leafless,
And lifeless and black,
And I wondered if the leaves could grow back

For your heart is like a flower as it grows,
And its the rain, not just the sun that helps it bloom,
And you don't know how it feels to be alive,
Until you know how it feels to die

Oh and if there's any love in me,
Don't let it show.
Oh and if there's any love in me,
Don't let it grow.

Oh and if there's any love in me,
Don't let it show.
oh and if there's any love in me,
Don't let it grow.

Oh and if there's any love in me,
Don't let it show.
Oh and if there's any love in me,
Don't let it grow

    My InterpretationI think this song is about someone who has been through a really horrible breakup.. and while he has moved on there are still residual feelings for his ex. feelings that he is trying his very best to suppress and extinguish. hence 'oh and if theres any love in me, dont let it show. oh and if theres any love in me, dont let it grow.' because he knows any love that regrows on that toxic land is doomed to fail again, no matter how promising it may appear to be
