Honey, I know what it is
No knowing love
When you lose the thing you've missed
You'd wish that it been never heard of

Yeah, I know you want it
All you've got in your chest is a hole
Filled with cold and bricks
But love is so damn hard
Take it from me, darling
You don't want a heart

Your love may be non-existant
But you're free
Don't be so persistant
It's warm at first
But once you feel it break
You'll feel the pain of it's burst

Yeah, you ain't listening to me
Okay, I'll give mine
You take my heart, it's broken but fine

Hey Mr. Tin man, I'll make you a deal
You give me your armor
And I'll give you my heart
Based on the song "Tin Man" by Miranda Lambert. Prompt from Corner Writing Club

    I love what you did with this title, and the unique spin on the idea. I looked up the lyrics to the actual song and was impressed by how you managed to twist them but keep them true.
