  • Lyrics
  • The light of the morning finds you sleeping in my bed
    And it's not like the stories, it's never like what they said
    I know who you want me to be, but I'm just not there yet
    Yeah, the broken road's always been home and it's so hard to forget

    Wait for me now
    Will you wait for me now?

    I might think too much, drink too much, stay out too late
    I know I'm just a fool, but I swear I can change
    I can't steal you the stars
    But I can give you this second hand heart
    All your friends think I'm hopeless, they don't understand
    That this imperfect love can start over again
    It's been broken apart
    Will you still take my second hand heart?

    Yeah, the light of the morning finds you sleeping in my bed
    Oh, and it's not like the stories, it's never like what they said
    And I know who you want me to be, but I'm just not there yet
    Yeah, the broken road's always been home and it's so hard to forget

    I might think too much, drink too much, stay out too late
    I know I'm just a fool, but I swear I can change
    I can't steal you the stars
    But I can give you this second hand heart
    All your friends think I'm hopeless, they don't understand
    That this imperfect love can start over again
    It's been broken apart
    Will you still take my second hand heart?

    If you let me show you, I could love you the same
    And I can't steal you the stars, but I can try every day
    Oh, you know they'll never tear us apart
    And I'm just a fool, but I swear I can change
    I can't steal you the stars, but I can try every day
    And you know, you've got my second hand heart

    You might think too much, drink too much, stay out too late
    I know you've been a fool, but I swear you can change
    I can't steal you the stars
    But I can give you this second hand heart
    All your friends think I'm hopeless, they don't understand
    That this imperfect love can start over again
    It's been broken apart
    Will you still take my second hand heart?

    And I'm just a fool, but I swear I can change
    And I can't steal you the stars, but I can try every day
    Oh, you know, you've got my second hand heart
    And I'm just a fool, but I swear I can change
    And I can't steal you the stars, but I can try every day
    Oh, you know, you've got my second hand heart Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
