Everybody's got a stupid heart...

Sometimes you really want the thing that is absolutely no good for you. Especially when you don't know what's good for you. Like, at all.


I got a stupid heart
you can ask anyone
you could have left me a thousand times
as long as you came back a thousand and one
yeah you really got
your dirty hooks in me
on my heart you've held the mortgage note
since we were seventeen

oh I got a stupid heart

my head's pretty smart
it's good at grown up things
I'm good at balancing my checkbook
and making sure the rent gets paid
It's just that every time
you come creeping back
I'll soon be selling off my assets like a lunatic on crack

oh I got a stupid heart

no I don't love her
not like I love you
but do I really love you or do
i just need to hear you
say to me that i
was the one you really wanted
I really wanted you

i think I've made it clear
i've got a stupid heart
i'm a sentimental imbecile
and such an easy mark
i've got nothing left
you took everything
my dear I'd rather be your servant
than anybody else's king

oh I got a stupid heart
no I don't love her
not like I love you
but do I really love you?
