lyrics

Secondhand Heart

What’s the matter with loving a man?
What’s the matter with the man who should be loving me?
I believed in a simple kind of romance
The kind of love I ain't ever seen
Truth or dare it’s a daily dose
You pay for daring but the truth you get for free
Well I believed in a simple kind of truthing
The kind of talk I aint never seen
I ain't never seen

I want to run with you til the morning
I want to ride until the end of the night
But there aint no love left
No love left in this secondhand heart

Where’s the prince I was promised as a child?
Where’s the lover I’m aching to meet?
You might believe in the waiting game
But the waiting game
Aint no friend to me
There’s sacrifice in this living every day
You give up the leaving and you learn how to stay
But there’ s a freedom, it’s running through my soul
And it’s breathing in
And it’s breathing out
And it’s calling to me

Saying I want to run with you til the morning
I want to ride until the end of the night
But there aint no love left
No love left in this secondhand heart
I want to run with you til the morning
I want to burn until the end of the night
But there aint no spark left
No spark left in this secondhand heart

Oh secondhand heart
Secondhand heart

What’s the matter with loving a man?
What’s the matter with the man who should be loving me?
I believed in a simple kind of romance
The kind of love I ain't ever seen

I want to run with you til the morning
I want to ride until the end of the night
But there ain’t no love left
No love left in this secondhand heart
I want to run with you til the morning
I want to burn until the end of the night
But there aint no spark left
No spark left in this secondhand heart
I want to run with you til the morning
I want to burn until the end of the night
But there aint no love left
No love left in this secondhand heart
Oh secondhand heart
Secondhand heart
Secondhand heart
