I’ve got a hard old heart, I’ve got a hard old heart
It’s been broken and beaten up too many times
It’s filled up with anger and darkness and grime
I don’t want this hard old heart
I don’t want this hard old heart

I’ve got a cold, dead heart, I’ve got a cold, dead heart
It’s colder than stone, somehow it keeps me alive
It’s crusty and dry but it wants to survive
I don’t want this cold, dead heart
I don’t want this cold, dead heart

I’ve got a hole in my heart where I once had love
And a gap in my life where you left
Now there’s dust and there’s dank old gravel and mud
And nothing left in me at all

I’ve got a tired old heart, I’ve got a tired old heart
All the damage and lies knifed into its side
and it wants to give up and go somewhere and hide
I don’t want this tired old heart
I don’t want this tired old heart

You used to love me with all of your heart
I used to walk on air
It all felt solid and real at the start
But it’s funny how love slips away

I’ve got a hard old heart, I’ve got a cold, dead heart
I’ve got a tired old heart, I’ve got a hard old heart
It’s been broken and beaten up too many times
Filled up with anger and darkness and grime
I don’t want this hard old heart, I don’t want this cold, dead heart
I don’t want this tired old heart, I don’t want this hard old heart
