  • I can almost read your mind
    It's runnin' fast, out of control
    You're afraid of what you'll find
    If you get too close
    You imagine I don't care
    You see walls that just aren't there
    You think I'm too strong to let you in
    Well, boy that's just not fair

    I'm not so tough, I'll call your bluff
    And let you see a side of me
    That wants you here and cries real tears
    I need someone to love
    I'm not so tough

    I know that you've been hurt before
    Well so have I, what can you do
    That doesn't mean you close the door
    So stop blamin' me, I don't blame you
    I'm not some ghost from your past
    The one who tore your heart in half
    I'm not her
    It's not my fault you're holding on to that

    I'm not so tough, I'll call your bluff
    And let you see a side of me
    That wants you here and cries real tears
    I need someone to love
    I'm not so tough
