the tin man lyrics – kenny chesney

(kenny chesney/stacey slate/david lowe)

saw a man in the movies that didn’t have a heart
how i wish i could give him mine
then i wouldn’t have to feel it breaking all apart
and this emptiness inside would suit me fine

it’s times like these
i wish i were a tin man
you could hurt me all you wanted
and i’d never even know
i’d give anything just to be the tin man
and i wouldn’t have a heart and i wouldn’t need a soul

i couldn’t see your leavin’ comin’
you took me by surprise
even now it still seems like a dream
but i know i can’t be dreamin’
’cause as i lay down each night
the pain so great that it won’t let me sleep

it’s times like these
i wish i were a tin man
you could hurt me all you wanted
and i’d never even know
i’d give anything just to be the tin man
and i wouldn’t have a heart and i wouldn’t need a soul
well i’d give anything just to be the tin man
and i wouldn’t have a heart and i wouldn’t miss you so
