Touch me, I'm so afraid to draw you close
Hold me before my hands fall away
I'll suffocate if I cant 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 strength was gone
I used to be a man of steel
I used to be a man of steel

I built this prison that I thought was a home
And we both lived here
Guess you were living alone
I'd tear it down if you would only have 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 until 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
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
I loved you from the start
Now you can't tear my world apart

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

I used to be a man of steel
I used to take you in my arms
What's it going to take for us
To break down and finally fall?

Apart at the seams
It seems that I always will fall apart
As strong as you are, as strong as I am
Why can't you break my heart?
