Used

Album: Like a Rose (2013)
  • Used, like an old piano played for generations
    Slowly fading out of tune
    Used, like the soles on the bottom of my favorite pair, of dancing shoes
    I know I'm not some bright and shiny
    Polished up, car that's sparkling new
    Right off the salesroom floor

    Yeah I've got some dents and bruises
    I've been dropped and there's a scar
    Where, my heart was broke before
    In the end, I'll worth a whole lot more
    Used

    Used, like a book read so many times
    Front to back it starts to split in two
    Used, like a house where a family lived
    Until they died and there's a soul in every room
    I know I'm not some brand new dress
    Hanging there perfectly pressed
    That never has been worn

    I've got some buttons missing
    And there's a couple stains
    And places where the fabric has been torn
    But in the end, I'll be worth a whole lot more, used

    This fragile heart has been passed around been ignored and been let down,
    been learning since the day that I was born
    But everything it's been through has lead me down to this road to
    and I can give like I couldn't give before
    but in the end I can love a whole lot more
    Used
