  • I pushed and pulled it
    I let you do it too
    Like it was metal
    Like it was bulletproof
    I forgot to cry when I was sad
    I forgot to fight when I was mad
    I made the moves that others would approve

    But it ain't calculated
    It ain't by the rules
    And you can hate it baby
    But it's gonna do what it's gonna do yeah

    I don't have a machine heart
    Can't tell it to stop, no burden to push the sky
    You'll see it break, you'll see it fall apart
    'Cause I don't have, I don't have
    A machine heart, no
    A machine heart

    I kept it quite
    But now you'll hear it scream
    'Cause good or bad or right or wrong
    It's finally found its bait

    But it ain't calculated
    It ain't by the rules
    And you can hate it baby
    But it's gonna do what it's gonna do yeah

    I don't have a machine heart
    Can't tell it to stop, no burden to push the sky
    You'll see it break, you'll see it fall apart
    'Cause I don't have, I don't have
    A machine heart (a machine heart)
    A machine heart (a machine heart)
    A machine heart (a machine heart)
    A machine heart (a machine heart)

    I won't always get it right
    But hey ain't that just life?
    At least you're gettin' something real
    I won't always get it right
    But hey ain't that just life?
    I wanna find, wanna feel

    'Cause I don't have a machine heart
    Can't tell it to stop, no burden to push the sky
    You'll see it break, you'll see it fall apart
    'Cause I don't have, no I don't have
    A machine heart (a machine heart)
    A machine heart (a machine heart)

    I pushed and pulled it
    I let you do it too
    I let you do it too
    I pushed and pulled it
    I let you do it too
    I let you do it too

    I don't have a machine heart
    No, I don't have a machine heart Writer/s: JAMES JOHN ABRAHART JR., KELSEA NICOLE BALLERINI, WILLIAM GREGORY WELLS
