lyrics

I'm a brave aviator in the stories that I write
A fearless lion-tamer baring it all every night
And there's nothing I won't tell when I'm behind my guitar
But when I'm standing beside you I am careful with my heart
When I'm standing beside you I am careful with my heart

You can say I'm reckless for the chances that I take
You can say I'm hopeless for all the losing bets I make
You know I'm hell on wheels, not afraid to fall apart
But when I'm standing beside you I am careful with my heart
When I'm standing beside you I am careful with my heart

I have slain dragons, but none wearing your clothes
With all your good intentions and your disarming prose
These words are a talisman to protect against love's start
When I'm standing beside you I am careful with my heart
I might well be a fool, but there's one way I am smart
When I'm standing beside you I am careful with my heart
When I'm standing beside you I am careful with my heart
