Oh this precious little heart I have
Once caged in iron ribs
And so full of promise
Seems shadowed, dried up, and wholly spent
God bless this precious little heart I have

And this precious little heart I have
Would take everything you own
Just to make itself whole
And I should have seen it ‘fore we began
I could have saved your precious little heart
From the wretched heart I have

And these lessons never learned
Come a-hammering down
Time and again
My face is burning red
Singing “you knew it, boy you knew it,
But you did it anyway,
And you got the nerve to call yourself a man
When all consequences swept up like sand.”
It’s like the devil’s got his own icy hand
Wrapped ‘round this precious little heart I have.

Oh this precious little heart I have
So wanted to be yours
But just couldn’t keep its promises
So the thing I need but can’t seem to grasp
Been shot down once again
By this wretched heart I have

And these lessons never learned
Come a-hammering down
Time and again
My face is burning red
Singing “you knew it, boy you knew it,
But you did it anyway,
And you got the nerve to call yourself a man
When all consequences swept up like sand.”
It’s like the devil’s got his own icy hand
Wrapped ‘round this precious little heart I have.
Wrapped ‘round this wretched little heart I have.
