Convince her not to stay alone.
The charming girl behind that wall
Is terrified to let it fall.
She’s going to take a lot of work.
For that, just thank a certain jerk.
The one who baited, promised, flattered
And—once he won her—left her shattered.
Now every man’s a ruthless snake,
A calling card for more heartache.
She’s had her guard up much too long.
Are you the one to prove her wrong?
Restore her faith in fairy tales?
Put the wind back in her sails?
It won’t be easy; she’ll resist.
She tends to soften when she’s kissed.
But please make sure your lips are true.
I’m ... she's pinning her last hopes on you.
