    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 recognized the walls that I once made
    Had to stop in my tracks for fear
    Of walking on the mines I'd laid

    And if I 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 are all sleeping
    Beneath that 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 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

    The 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 recognized the fields where I once played
    I had to stop in my tracks for fear
    Of walking on the mines I'd laid

    And if I 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
