I've got a hand-me-down heart
Filled with second hand love
It's been weighing me down
So I'm selling it off
At a discounted rate
That nobody wants to pay

And all that I am
Still belongs to you
Take a look at me darling
I don't want something new
If I gave all I had
Would it have made you stay?

Would it have made you stay?
Would it have made you stay?

I'd send myself broke
Just to buy back the time
If the change in my pockets
Could change your mind
I'd send myself broke
But I don't really mind
I'm doing it all, I'm doing it all
Just so we can rewind
Oh, to when you were mine

I carry first hand hurt
In the back of my mind
'Cause you loved me so fast
That I got left behind
I still watch the clock
But I know I'm just too late

I know I'm just too late
I know I'm just too late

I'd send myself broke
Just to buy back the time
If the change in my pockets
Could change your mind
I'd send myself broke
But I don't really mind
I'm doing it all, I'm doing it all
Just so we can rewind
Oh, to when you were mine

I'd send myself broke
Just to buy back the time
If the change in my pockets
Could change your mind
I'd send myself broke
But I don't really mind
I'm doing it all, I'm doing it all

I'd send myself broke
Just to buy back the time
If the change in my pockets
Could change your mind
I'd send myself broke
But I don't really mind
I'm doing it all, I'm doing it all
Just so we can rewind
Oh, to when you were mine
