i'd give my heart
if you'd give your attention
but when i look
there's just an open trench (and baby)

i can't stand to see you, girl
showing off your silver party dress
no, you can't come over now
the house ain't neat
my room's a mess

i'd give my heart
to just be in contention
but i sold it off
at the baseball card convention

i can't stand to see you, girl
rubbing motor oil on all your joints
no, i ain't no straight A wiz
but i could learn
that's not the point (i'll plot my points)

i'd give my heart
if i had one for giving
i'd give my heart
your lips could keep me living
i'd give my heart (i'd give my heart)
and always be forgiving
i'd give my heart (i'd give my heart)
if i had one for giving

    General Commentto me, it seems like he doesnt think he's capable of loving this girl right cause he feels he's not sufficient, and he's jealous of anyone who has a chance.

    General Comment***I think he might of gotten hurt in passed relationships, he trys to stop himself from getting attached and later getting hurt. He is sensitive and little things seem to bother him. I guess you can say he doesnt want to ry anymore.

    General CommentWhy haven't anyone made any comments on how funny it is that this is a song about the tin man and that ozma is named after the sequel to the wizard of oz? I guess either it was too obvious or too obscure, either way I have now made the comment, you can thank me later.

    General CommentI agree with mothr nature's son. This song is obviously about the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz. You guys should read up on your Oz history.
