Versuri Sting - Fortress Around Your Heart

Album: Sting - Songs Of Love

Under the ruins of a walled city 
Crumbling towers in beams of yellow light 
No flags of truce, no cries of pity 
The siege guns had been pounding through the night 
It took a day to build the city 
We walked through its streets in the afternoon 
As I returned across the fields I'd known 
I recognised the walls that I once made 
I had to stop in my tracks for fear 
Of walking on the mines I'd laid 
And if I've built this fortress around your heart 
Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire 
Then let me build a bridge 
For I cannot fill the chasm 
And let me set the battlements on fire 

Then I went off to fight some battle 
That I'd invented inside my head 
Away so long for years and years 
You probably thought, or even wished that I was dead 
While the armies all are sleeping 
Beneath the tattered flag we'd made 
I had to stop in my tracks for fear 
Of walking on the mines I'd laid 

And if I've built this fortress around your heart 
Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire 
Then let me build a bridge 
For I cannot fill the chasm 
And let me set the battlements on fire 

This prison has now become your home 
A sentence you seem prepared to pay 
It took a day to build the city 
We walked through its streets in the afternoon 
As I returned across the lands I'd known 
I recognised the fields where I'd once played 
I had to stop in my tracks for fear 
Of walking on the mines I'd laid 

And if I've built this fortress around your heart 
Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire 
Then let me build a bridge 
For I cannot fill the chasm 
And let me set the battlements on fire
