Verse 1

You disappeared like the wind blows in a gust,

Left behind a gaping hole in my heart so vast,

When I'm careless I fall deep into that crater,

That quicksand of flashbacks when we were together.

Chorus

I hold my shield up high,

Build walls that reach the sky.

But you creep in through the cracks,

And you sneak in through the gaps.

Chorus

I hold my shield up high,

Build walls that reach the sky.

But you creep in through the cracks,

And you sneak in through the gaps.

Verse 2

You jumped off this burning plane with your parachute,

Took you just a few moments to give me the boot,

But it's taking me months just to burn your picture,

And forget your words- to me they were like scripture.

Chorus

I hold my shield up high,

Build walls that reach the sky.

But you creep in through the cracks,

And you sneak in through the gaps.

Chorus

I hold my shield up high,

Build walls that reach the sky.

But you creep in through the cracks,

And you sneak in through the gaps.

Bridge

I hold my shield up high,

Build walls that reach the sky,

But every time I look you in the eye,

I sink deeper into that gigantic lie,

The one you spelt as l, o, v, e.

Here we go again, you've got me.

Chorus

I hold my shield up high,

Build walls that reach the sky.

But you creep in through the cracks,

And you sneak in through the gaps.

Chorus

I hold my shield up high,

Build walls that reach the sky.

But you creep in through the cracks,

And you sneak in through the gaps.
