"Second Hand Heart" as written by and Dwight David Yoakam....
She said when I trusted love I dreamed in color too
But memories turn black and white, at least mine do…
She said my brother, you know, he used to have this friend…
But this is now and that was then

It’s better off just not to start
Than to have to watch us fall apart
All because of my second hand heart

I said if you could count up memories but only keep the best
You may not see how good they were without the rest
She said look I tried a lot
But I guess love it don’t like me
Oh and by the way, all those tries?
Sure didn’t come for free

So it’s better off just not to start
Than to have to watch us fall apart
All because of my second hand heart

Second hand hearts
Second hand hearts
Second hand hearts
Second hand hearts
Are not just for parts

So I’ll take away your sad luck baby
And you’ll change mine
When hurt starts talkin’ we’ll say hey, ya know, we ain’t got time
Then pick up all those small hopes back off the ground
’Cause after years of tears it’s hard to say what’s up or down

So if you will, I’ll try to start
And take the chance that we might fall apart
To try and save our second hand hearts
She said when I trusted love I dreamed in color too…
