  • She said when I trusted love I dreamed in color too
    But memories turn black and white, at least mine do...
    She said my brother, you know, he used to have this friend...
    But this is now and that was then

    It's better off just not to start
    Than to have to watch us fall apart
    All because of my second hand heart

    I said if you could count up memories but only keep the best
    You may not see how good they were without the rest
    She said look I tried a lot
    But I guess love it don't like me
    Oh and by the way, all those tries?
    Sure didn't come for free

    So it's better off just not to start
    Than to have to watch us fall apart
    All because of my second hand heart

    Second hand hearts
    Second hand hearts
    Second hand hearts
    Second hand hearts
    Are not just for parts

    So I'll take away your sad luck baby
    And you'll change mine
    When hurt starts talkin' we'll say hey, ya know, we ain't got time
    Then pick up all those small hopes back off the ground
    'Cause after years of tears it's hard to say what's up or down

    So if you will, I'll try to start
    And take the chance that we might fall apart
    To try and save our second hand hearts
    She said when I trusted love I dreamed in color too... Writer/s: DWIGHT DAVID YOAKAM
