  MAN OF STEEL

Touch me — I'm so afraid to draw you close
Hold me — before my hands fall away
I'll suffocate if I can't breathe you in
And hold you there — forever

I left a message at the hotel, they said you checked out
They said you ain't coming back
I tried to call you, but you turned off your cell
And it said at the tone, "Just leave me alone"

And I fall apart at the seams
It seems that I always, always fall apart
But as strong as I am
Why can't I break your heart?

I remember how it used to be:
Making love to you all night long
I used to take you in my arms
And hold you there until all my strenght was gone

I used to be a man of steel
I used to be a man of steel

I build this prison that I thought was a home
And we both lived there, guess you were living alone
I'd tear it down if you would have only asked
And I would build you a bridge so you could come back

And I fall apart at the seams
It seems that I always, always fall apart
But as strong as I am
Why can't I break your heart?

I remember how it used to be:
Making love to you all night long
I used to take you in my arms
And hold you there 'til all your fears were gone

I used to be a man of steel
I used to be a man of steel....

I used to be a man of steel
I used to take you in my arms
Girl: Hey hey now, tell me why can't you just break my heart?

I used to be a man of steel
I used to take you in my arms
Girl: I loved you from the start, now you can't tear my world apart

I used to be a man of steel
Girl: I need man…
Now every bit of faith is gone
Girl: You used to be so strong, now you can't even break my heart

I used to be a man of steel
Girl: You used to be…
I used to take you in my arms
Girl: A man of steel…
What's it gonna take for us to break down
And finally fall
Apart at the seems
It seems that I always fall apart
Girl: As strong as you are
As strong as I am
Girl: Why can't you break my heart...?.
