Heart Of Steel

@ 2002 Craig Carothers

Early October, baby we're over
Better find another warm shoulder
Cause I'm not gonna be yours anymore

You kept lyin' and I kept cryin'
All the while our love was dyin'
But I'm not tryin to save it anymore

Not now, now that my heart is made of steel
And I'm invincible to pain
Standing behind my perfect shield
Where nobody else can ever make me cry
You could never hurt the guy with the heart of steel

Yesterday's child goes the extra mile
Standin' by you livin' in denial
But I'm not gonna stand there anymore

Tired of excuses, hidin' my bruises
The one who cares is the one who loses
But I'm not that loser anymore

REPEAT CHORUS

You used to try and melt it
And back then I always felt the heat
But those days are gone
Anymore you only wanna break it
Well baby I can take it now
So bring it it on...

...standing behind my perfect shield
Where nobody else can ever make me cry

Sometimes, I wish my heart were made of steel
And I was invincible to pain
Standing behind some perfect shield
Where nobody else could ever make me cry
No matter how they tried

But I will never be the guy
With the heart of steel
