Hard Shell

Say, there‘s somethin‘ in your eyes,

That always keeps you near to me,

It‘s that somethin‘ deep behind,

The person you appear to be

Who gave you your Hard Shell,

Cos baby, you don‘t wear it well,

It‘s only a cry for help,
And this I tell you,

There‘s someplace in my heart,
That always will belong to you,
But I don‘t know where to start,

Puttin‘ right what I done wrong to you,

‘Cos you gave me my Hard Shell,

And Baby I don‘t wear it well,

Yeah it‘s only a cry for help,
This I tell you,

And I swear, and I pray,
Cos I‘m a-going nowhere, day by day,
Can‘t we give ourselves, one more try,
And we‘ll throw away the Hard Shells in our stride, And we‘ll throw away the Hard Shells in our stride, Oh yeah, ooh yeah...

There‘s a burnin‘ in my heart,
That isn‘t gettin‘ over you,
I‘m turnin‘ over every stone in my yard,

Trying to find my way back home to you

And I‘m breaking this Hard Shell,

Cos Baby, I don‘t wear it well,

Yeah it’s only a cry for help,
And this I tell you,

Breaking this Hard Shell,

‘Cos Baby, I don‘t wear it well,

Yeah it’s only a cry for help,

And this I tell you,

Hmmmm..
