about

hearts are tricky, fragile things

lyrics

I won't push you
I won't lie to impress you
And if you don't feel the same
I won't make it an issue
I won't cast you beneath
Any old dirty shoe
I won't slide out of reach
At least not from view

But I will consume you
I'll grab from inside you
To pull you apart
To get to your heart
And you'll take it with ease
Swept up in my warm Island breeze
I'll wash you away
To sunnier days

I won't use you
For my personal gain
I won't try to compete
Or make us the same
I won't leave you behind
In a crowded room
But I'll work it alone
Let you work your own

And you will consume me
You'll grab from inside me
To pull me apart
To get to my heart
And I'll take it with ease
Swept up in your warm Island breeze
You'll wash me away
To sunnier days

You'll handle me gently
You'll handle me gently
You'll generate warmth
Where there was none before
You'll carry me just enough
To keep me from masking tough
You'll handle me gently
You'll handle me gently

I don't need too much
I want love - not a crutch
I don't want a thing from you
That I have to ask of you
I won't let you get away
With holding my heart for ransom
But I'll post your bail
No matter how handsom

I won't make you feel guilty
And I refuse to cry
'Cause this feels like something
I'll feel til I die

And I'll handle you gently
I'll handle you gently
I'll handle you gently
I'll handle you gently
I'll carry you just enough
To keep you from masking tough
I'll handle you gently
I'll handle you gently
I'll handle you gently

about

Sarah Burton Toronto, Ontario

Burton’s career started in 2006 with a broken heart, a broken down van, and a haphazard tour across Canada in a van named Lucky. This set the tone for an artist life driven by adventure, spontaneity, and a desire to connect with people from all walks of life. ... more
