[Verse 1]
We carved our initials that old live oak tree
Your hand next to my hand in the brand new concrete
Your love changed just like the weather
So cold, girl, I oughta wear a sweater
Who knew that forever could be so temporary?

[Chorus]
Sometimes I wish I had a cardboard heart
It wouldn't hurt me when you tore it apart
And movin' on wouldn't be so dang hard
If I only, if I only had a cardboard heart

[Post-Chorus]
Fold it up, I could just fold it up and move on, yeah
Fold it up, I could just fold it up and move on

[Verse 2]
There ain't no prescription for this breakup drama
No kind of physician that could fix this trauma
Now she's on a plane to Hawaii
First class with a brand new guy
Who knew she could play me like an old ukulele?

[Chorus]
Sometimes I wish I had a cardboard heart
It wouldn't hurt me when you tore it apart
And movin' on wouldn't be so dang hard
If I only, if I only had a cardboard heart

[Post-Chorus]
Fold it up, I could just fold it up and move on, yeah
Fold it up, I could just fold it up and move on

[Bridge]
Oughta head down to the UPS
Grab a box, cut it out, stick it on my chest
I know it ain't real, but it feels no pain
Now sing along with me if you feel the same

[Chorus]
Sometimes I wish I had a cardboard heart
It wouldn't hurt me when you tore it apart
And movin' on wouldn't be so dang hard
If I only, if I only had a cardboard heart

[Post-Chorus]
Fold it up, I could just fold it up and move on, yeah
Fold it up, I could just fold it up and move on
Fold it up, I could just fold it up and move on, yeah
Fold it up, I could just fold it up and move on
