All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Fragility is a delicate word. Based on that, compose a song (lyrics) that deal with ‘fragility’.

Your dream of me is someone made of glass
Who'd shatter at a single unkind word.
A tapestry that tatters at a whisper's pass,
That dream's not me. The very thought's absurd.

Things are rarely fragile as they seem—
A spider's web could lift an iron beam.
When you look at me, try to see my face—
I'm strong like silk, and complicated as lace.

You think that just because I try to be kind,
Because I love enough that my heart aches—
Because when I am wrong I change my mind,
That I'm something that's doomed to break—

An icicle that melts in a cool spring breeze
Is strong and sharp enough to pierce you through,
You say you're strong as iron, but it can freeze,
And when it does, the fragile one is you.

Things are rarely fragile as they seem—
A spider's web can move an iron beam,
Just really look at me, just see my face.
I'm strong as silk. I'm as complex as lace.

Look, just really look at me, just open your eyes,
And don't assume that I'll crumble and fail.
I can live without you, want to watch me try?
Can you? Let's be honest, who is really frail?

Things are never fragile as they seem—
My threads of silk will bend your iron beam.
Memorize the lines of stubborn on my face,
And see the truth: I'm as complex as lace.
Just see this truth, you are caught up in my lace.
