lyrics

TIN CAN HEART

I just can't explain
The palpitations of my heart.
When there's nothing I can see
That hints at approachability.
I don't want to think about it!
My tin heart's been kicked in too many times!
Will you cast a glance my way?
Does my apprehension show?
Was there a hint of a smile
To spark a jumpstart for my nerve.
I don't want to think about it!
There are already too many smashed in hearts.

Fashion a heart from steel
To withstand the force
Of the hammer of rejection
And disinterest.
I guess I need to think about it!
My heart's been kicked in oh too many times!
And the seconds go down like medicine when she walks in the room.
And the minutes seem like hours when I'm waiting for the pot to boil.

Well, I've had it all wrong
Because up to now I really believed
That it was up to a girl
To fill the hollow of my heart.
I really need to think about it!
This tin heart's been kicked in oh too many times!
I'll fill my emptiness
By reaching out with a helping hand.
I'll surround myself with friends
Who'll be as steadfast as a rock.
I really need to make it happen!
A heart of steel can take the hammering.
One hundred introductions
Might be what it takes to find
Compatibility-
A receptive heart.
I don't want to live without it!
Each turn-down brings me one step closer to you!
And the seconds go down like champagne when she comes into view.
And the minutes are a rushing river when there's nothing I can lose.
