    Sting - Fortress Around Your Heart

    Sting - Fortress Around Your Heart (1985)



    Data Analysis



    "Fortress Around Your Heart"

    Under the ruins of a walled city
    Crumbling towers in beams of yellow light
    No flags of truce, no cries of pity
    The siege guns had been pounding through the night
    It took a day to build the city
    We walked through its streets in the afternoon
    As I returned across the fields I'd known
    I recognised the walls that I once made
    I had to stop in my tracks for fear
    Of walking on the mines I'd laid
    And if I've built this fortress around your heart
    Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire
    Then let me build a bridge
    For I cannot fill the chasm
    And let me set the battlements on fire

    Then I went off to fight some battle
    That I'd invented inside my head
    Away so long for years and years
    You probably thought, or even wished that I was dead
    While the armies all are sleeping
    Beneath the tattered flag we'd made
    I had to stop in my tracks for fear
    Of walking on the mines I'd laid

    And if I've built this fortress around your heart
    Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire
    Then let me build a bridge
    For I cannot fill the chasm
    And let me set the battlements on fire

    This prison has now become your home
    A sentence you seem prepared to pay
    It took a day to build the city
    We walked through its streets in the afternoon
    As I returned across the lands I'd known
    I recognised the fields where I'd once played
    I had to stop in my tracks for fear
    Of walking on the mines I'd laid

    And if I've built this fortress around your heart
    Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire
    Then let me build a bridge
    For I cannot fill the chasm
    And let me set the battlements on fire
