Be gentle; please be careful

For the heart you hold's endured so much

Too many times it's been kicked around

I'm afraid it couldn't take much more

On it you can see the scars

From which spread black stains

Darkness used to rule there

But was pushed away by your light

So I beg you, please be gentle

I don't want my heart to break

So many times it's come too close

If you were to damage it

I suppose I'd understand

But with you it wouldn't take much

For it to break completely

And so I remind you once more;

Please, be gentle with my heart

For I've left it with you
