Heart on lockdown

I thought of you,
Each time I tried something new,
And I stopped trying,
So I wouldn’t have to.
 
I thought of you,
Each time I fucked someone new,
And I stopped fucking,
So I wouldn’t have to.
 
I thought of you,
Every time I drank something new,
And I stopped drinking,
So I wouldn’t have to.
 
Then I built back up those walls,
That I once tore down for you,
High enough to please the Donald,
Solid enough never to budge,
Broad enough to withstand the world.
And strong enough to keep you out,
So I wouldn’t have to.
 
This time I made sure to leave out the door,
And I sure as hell won’t give you the key,
Nor to someone new,
So I can stop rebuilding.
