Lyrics

My thoughts are a little cloudy
My feelings are around me
Yesterday is passed tomorrow's gone
Let it go I think I'm crazy
You're gone and it's just daybreak
Should have known you wouldn't stay too long
I can't tell you what time it is
I'm not wise, it's just the way it is

If I were smart
I wouldn't have a heart
If I were smart
I wouldn't have a heart

When you called me baby
I'm needing you already
You don't even recognize you're gone
I hate this cloud I'm under
And I can't stand the thunder
I always pryed on the happiness you brought
Sands in hourglasses hit the ground
Millions of them, lost and never found

If I were smart
I wouldn't have a heart
If I were smart
I wouldn't have a heart

Oh the tin man played it cool, he said love's for fools
But his emptiness was real, he wanted more
But when his chest was pounding, he wished he'd never found it
Cause the hurt came hard and tears began to pour

If he were smart
He wouldn't have a heart
If he were smart
He wouldn't have a heart

Oooooohhh

If we were smart
We wouldn't have a heart
Ooohhhh
If I were smart
I wouldn't have a heart
