PROTECTION

Home demo version 4

Oh, you say you'll never love again

[Spoken]: Let's try it out the same, and with drums.

Oh, you say you'll never love again
Not after the last time
Oh, you say you'll never love again
Baby, this'll be mine
Well, all I want is one sweet kiss
I'm not asking for your devotion
I've never even run like this
Inspection

You want protection from a broken heart
Protection, baby, you can't get it
Protection that you want all you can get
Protection, and just won't quit it
Protection, gonna break your heart
Protection, baby, you don't play
Protection, protection from a broken heart

Protection from a broken heart

Li, li, li, li, li, li, li
Li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li
