I'm Not So Tough

This song is by Ilse DeLange and appears on the album World Of Hurt (1998) and on the compilation album Here I Am 1998-2003 (2003).

I can almost read your mind,
It's running fast, out of control
You're afraid of what you'll find
If you get too close
You imagine I don't care
You see walls that just aren't there
You think I'm too strong to let you in
Well that's just not fair

I'm not so tough, I'll call your bluff
And let you see a side of me
That wants you here and cries real tears
And needs someone to love
I'm not so tough

I know that you've been hurt before
Well so have I what can you do
That doesn't mean you close the door
So stop blamin' me, I don't blame you
I'm not some ghost from your past
The one who tore your heart in half
I'm not her, it's not my fault you're holding on to that
