No More Protecting My Heart

This song is by Jamie O'Neal and appears on the album Shiver (2000).

I been walkin' through life with a bullet proof vest
Shielding emotions, acting like I couldn't care less
I kept love at a distance my defenses were locked and alert
Then you say hello and the next thing I know
I'm ready to risk being hurt

Chorus: No more protecting my heart now darlin'
My soul is out of the dark now yes it is
I'm settin' my sails, tail winds prevail & I'm on my way
You've got me lettin' my guard down baby
I wanna see what love has to offer me
I'm showin' all my cards
No more protecting my heart

I been guilty of sayin' no when I could have said yes
My heart's history, well it hasn't been the best
But this time I'm trusting in somebody other then me
I built the walls tall, now there gonna fall
Got no more secets to keep

I been waitin', hesitatin', treadin' water, tryin' to stay afloat
But now I'm headin' in the right direction finally filled
With hope

No more protecting my heart

You've got me lettin' my guard down baby
I wanna see what love has to offer me
I'm showin' all my cards
No more protecting my heart
Baby, I'm ready to start
No more protecting my heart
