lyrics

My heart is a fortress, a city hard to please
And she told me that paintings, they could bring me to my knees
Now she's somewhere in Florence and I'm stuck here in London Another summer

My love was a painter, an artist from within
But I was a dreamer and I wanted everything
Now she's somewhere in Florence and I'm stuck here in London Another summer

When the weight of the world falls in your lap
What can you do but run from that?
I cradled my songs, my precious time
A king from myself not a next-in-line
How could I have what I still am?
So young and so frightened, how it changes everything

You know love, it changes everything
