the guardian lyrics – delta goodrem

i push through the crowd
without looking back
to leave you behind
took all i had
and maybe i’m wrong
i might be sorry

but what kind of fool
would hope for a change
then write a new word
on a page that stained
and ruined by lie
you shouldn’t have told me

i’m the guardian
i am the sole protector
on a heart that’s been abused

i won’t let love do me in again
i can’t just run to the light
of a fire and jump in
risk a poison kiss just to have
my thirst unquenched again
let love do me in

i swallow the urge
to call out your name
the need crashes in
i brace for the wave
and pray it will p*ss
not take me under

’cause, i’m the guardian
i am the last defence for
my weakened heart
that still wants you

i won’t let love do me in again
i can’t just run to the light
of a fire and jump in
risk a poison kiss just to have
my thirst unquenched again
let love do me in

i’m the guardian
i am the sole protector
of a heart that’s been abused

i won’t let love do me in again
i can’t just run to the light
of a fire and jump in
risk a poison kiss just to have
my thirst unquenched again
let love do me in
