UNPROTECTED

UNPROTECTED
(J.Lowe / Lowe Life Music)

There’s a world out there you’re facing unprotected,
You can’t stay wrapped in cotton wool for long,
Apron strings and safety nets discarded,
And off you go to deal with rights and wrongs,

Unprotected, unprotected,
From the salt and pepper troubles from above,
Unprotected, unprotected,
Who’d have thought you’d need to take such care in love.

There’s a lot more to me than “unprotected”,
And it’s this very weakness makes me strong,
And though fate has cruelly left me broken hearted,
I’m still mother, daughter, lover, father, son.

Unprotected, unprotected,
From the salt and pepper troubles from above,
Unprotected, unprotected,
Who’d have thought you’d need to take such care in love?
