lyrics

My Second-hand Heart

I’ve been around the block
At least a time or two,
I’ve known love and I’ve known lust,
I’ve known the deepest shade of blue,
I cannot say my heart
Has never broken clean in two,
But damaged hearts are stronger
For the pain that they’ve been through.

So I hope you won’t be troubled
By my less-than-perfect past,
And I hope you can be happy
With a second-hand heart.

You look into my eyes,
See things I hoped I’d left behind,
Chapters I’ve moved on from,
Wreckage from another life;
I’ve risked and I’ve regretted,
I’ve had my fingers burned,
I’ve been hurt and I’ve been patched up
From so many twists and turns.

So I hope you won’t be troubled
By my less-than-perfect past,
And I hope you can be happy
With a second-hand heart.

Finally you open up,
Speak of a sadder time,
And it turns out that your heart
Is just as trampled on as mine.

At last we’ve come to rest,
Two wandering souls no longer lost,
Now the winding paths we’ve been on
By some miracle have crossed;
Your story strikes a chord in me,
My pain you recognise,
One bruised heart to another,
Take my hand, share my life.

You see, me, I’m far from troubled
By your less-than-perfect past,
And you, you’re more than happy
With my second-hand heart.

Yeah, me, I’m far from troubled
By your less-than-perfect past,
And you, you’re more than happy
With my second-hand heart.
