No One Gets Close

No One Gets Close
@ 1988 C. Carothers

I know it's not polite to ask
Do you ever drop the mask?
Does anybody see your face
Or do you scare 'em all away

I believe you do
No one get's close to you

Nothing ever means that much
Not if it adds up to trust
You wouldn't wanna take the chance
Of weakening the warrior stance

No one get's close
In a million years
No weakness shows
And you hide your tears
(Do you hide your tears?)
No one get's close
No one get's close
No one get's close to you

No one can see you
Not even light gets through
Now I believe you
No one get's close to you

Nothing has become of us
But you're not even curious
You act as if you've always known
But where do the shut-outs go?
