I still love

Build the walls my friends have said
But I just sadly shake my head
I can not change the natural law
I'm always open, always raw

I care too much and do get hurt
Been cut and torn and severely burnt
But I wouldn't trade one second dears
To stop all those billion tears

All those tears that I did shed
Are for words that will no more be said
All those words of love and trust
They went away, I guess they must

But new doors open and invite me in
To new places I've never been
New things I know not of
Only knowing that I still love
