I remember feeling so hopeful about him / We were gonna take on the whole world / Every night was torture without him / But it was worth it cause I'd always be his girl / Then I left him or he left me / A parade of interchangeable he's / Healed my scars so they could give me fresh ones / Each time there's a little less to hurt / Build tolerance to the dust and dirt / Till I'm immune to every flirt in the kingdom // CHORUS: My heart still jumps at a sideways glance, a hand upon my waist / I’ve been starved for love so long that when I get a taste / Feels just like the first time, except I don't believe / In the stories my heart tells me // A decade now since we were first together / Ran off to Seattle in the spring / I was just a schoolgirl chasing after / The quickest way to forever and a ring / We played house and he would fix the toilet / I baked pies and I'd make the bed / We both hated doing dishes and the laundry / And he'd make me cry until my eyes were red // CHORUS // Now I'm not hardened yet, maybe I should be / Lord knows I've had enough pressure and heat / I still love as easy now as when you knew me / Wide eyes and wallet open to the thieves / I’m not jaded yet, still blood and bone / There's no good way to turn a heart to stone / But I’ve put in my time trying to change / The difference is subtle, I still love causing trouble / But those sweet words of love just come out strange // CHORUS //
