My Heart on My Sleeve
opened up to you
like to no-one before
you tell your wondrous stories
make me laugh and more
I've never felt so insecure
standing at the edge of a cliff,
I jump, you said you'd break my fall
then a message full of confusion
or no word at all
and I'm in the air hanging
on to an illusion
you disappear, you've done it before
I never learn my lessons well
this time I hear loud and clear
the ringing of the bell
and I dare you not to feel
in this transitory relationship
the tug at the end of the reel
and as I wear my heart on my sleeve
I want to trust
I want to believe
you say what you mean and
you mean what you say
but history keeps repeating itself
you pull the rug from under my feet
and I wait for you to tell me it's all okay
"It is sure as you are Roderigo,
Were I the Moor, I would not be Iago.
In following him, I follow but myself;
Heaven is my judge, not I for love and duty,
But seeming so, for my peculiar end;
For when my outward action doth demonstrate
The native at and figure of my heart
In complement extern, 'tis not long after
But I will wear my heart upon my sleeve.
For daws to peck at, I am not what I am."
Othello, Act 1, scene 1 56-65 Shakespeare
