A Slightly Used Heart

"A Slightly Used Heart"

Hey, mister, can I interest you in a slightly used heart?
It was in good working order once, and how.
Can you find a use for it, though it's lightly scarred?
Won't you give a try to a slightly used heart?

C'mon brother, a slightly used heart?
It was in good working order once, not now.
Can you find a use for it, though it's lightly scarred?
Won't you give a try to a slightly used heart?

Maybe I should've heeded the warnings, the gossip, the talk
Should've heard the hesitation in his voice, should've known that he'd balk.
No matter what people say, I still can't conceive
That he would walk away.
It never made sense to me, but:

C'mon brother, a slightly used heart?
It was in good working order once, and how.
Can you find a use for it, though it's lightly scarred?
Won't you give a try to a slightly used heart?

It was broken once by the shore,
Once more at our old place,
The last time was at the store.
I never could get it back the way it was before!

C'mon brother, a slightly used heart?
It was in good working order once, not now.
Can you find a use for it, though it's lightly scarred?
Won't you give a try to a slightly used heart?
