A quiet hand rests on my heart   
Granting much wanted solitude
It's the only thing I have to myself right now 
                     I'm always surrounded by people     
    People wanting my attention    
         People doing their own things     
               Yet there is always distraction          
I have nowhere to hide                   
      But in myself   
Grant me somewhere else to hide    
                        To find peace     
                                To think     
                                    To plan      
Only then will I have strength               
     To let loose my heart                            
                And give it to someone else
