Lyrics:

You only see what your eyes want to see

How can life be what you want it to be

You’re frozen

When your heart’s not open

You’re so consumed with how much you get

You waste your time with hate and regret

You’re broken

When your heart’s not open

Mmm, if I could melt your heart

Mmm, we’d never be apart

Mmm, give yourself to me

Mmm, you hold the key

Now there’s no point in placing the blame

And you should know I suffer the same

If I lose you

My heart will be broken

Love is a bird, she needs to fly

Let all the hurt inside of you die

You’re frozen

When your heart’s not open

Mmm, if I could melt your heart

Mmm, we’d never be apart

Mmm, give yourself to me

Mmm, you hold the key

You only see what your eyes want to see

How can life be what you want it to be

You’re frozen

When your heart’s not open

Mmm, if I could melt your heart

Mmm, we’d never be apart

Mmm, give yourself to me

Mmm, you hold the key

If I could melt your heart
