Better Than My Heart
by Luke Bryan



I’m feeling kind of banged up
Slow out of the bed
Neon noise and honky-tonk wine ringing in my head
Last night I saw your car
I overheard your name
Pulled my hat down low, wouldn’t want you to know I was in this shape

Chorus:
Now these old beer bones
Are like a rusty old plow
These cigarette eyes are
‘Bout to burn out
But they’re still doing better
Better than my heart
These whiskey worn lips can’t muster up a smile
The soles on my boots have walked their last mile
But they’re still doing better
Better than my heart

You filled it with your love
Then you drained it out
Sometimes I think you built it up
Just to break it down
Now all that’s really left
Is an emptiness inside
A river running cold, memories growing old
Dying right there on the vine

Repeat Chorus Twice

Yeah, they’re still doing better
Better than my heart
Better than my heart
