Three little pigs vs my determination to never again get involved with the BBW nurserypoem
Love and I have seen our fair share of life's little ups and downs
When I was young it certainly was a lot easier than it is now
And it's not because of my failing mind or my ageing body
It is more about past lovers leaving me oh so sore and sorry

They say when you fall off your bike to get right back on again
I say only after enough time has passed to allow yourself to mend
A broken heart takes a very long time before it might be fixed
And each time that it happens going from straw to sticks to bricks

A sturdy house should be able to withstand the worst of emotional storms
If it's made from solid materials and it's foundation is very strong
So now the walls around my heart are almost impossible to pass
I would definitely prefer it to be that way instead of them being made of glass

Because glass is transparent it won't hide away my pain
I guess that might be something good and could be for my own gain
But it's brittle and it's cold and so delicate that it easily shatters
And a broken heart needs more than that to protect it from emotional matters

The time has come for me to change and put an end to dragging my feet
Because that won't really will cut it now there's a girl who I happened to meet
She is warm and she is soft and she won't ever huff and puff
She understands me and the things I do and that is more than enough

I watch as my impenetrable walls all come tumbling down
My reflection shows a smiling face....seems I've lost that eternal frown
She looks so pleased with her handiwork, not a girl in wolf's clothing
A fairy tale that could easily have ended with only me and my fear and loathing
