Handle With Care

Handle With Care
(Music: Markus Husi/ Words: Patrick Stoll)

So now it has happened once again
The thing your mind had warned you of before
It’s happened in spite of your defence
Against that thing called love

You never thought you’d fall for it again
From now on this guy is clever enough
Kept telling yourself last time was the end
Of that dangerous thing called love

 So you designed yourself a perfect plan
Said «No girl can spoil it, no-one can»
Oh, in the future you were gonna be tough
When it came to the thing called love

Starting out, your plan worked very well
No stranger would dare and ever try
Considered yourself to be the living proof
Of what they call «Once bitten, twice shy»

You never thought you’d fall for it again
From now on this guy is clever enough
To stay away from something that only brings pain
Talking ‘bout that mean old thing called love

But along comes this woman
You can see she’s got something to share
As she then starts battering your old defences
Your heart worries
Will it be handled with care?

Look at you still struggling to maintain your reluctance
Isn’t it a classic case of push and shove
Let’s face it: you’re fighting a losing battle
You’ll have to give in to the thing called love

Now that everything is so fresh and new
Avoid the old mistakes that once led you there
Knowing that the damage is so easily done
When it comes to hearts, remember
Handle with care

But along comes this woman
You can see she’s got something to share
As she then starts battering your old defences
Your heart worries
Will it be handled with care?

Handle with care – that’s what you need
Handle with care – is all you’re asking for
Handle with care – that’s what you want
Handle with care – and nothing more
