lyrics

BETTER HEARTS THAN YOURS
(Kurt Fortmeyer)

I've had love's tables turned on me
Felt warmth become a chill
I've been forced to swallow pride
And that's a bitter pill
We had an overflowing cup
Until you let it spill
Once I suited you just fine
Now I don't fit the bill

In your oyster bar of love
I got an empty shell
Now your menu caters to
A different clientele
If you don't want my business
I guess that's just as well
But I'll tell you what I'll stay right here
And you can go to hell

I've been thrown out of better hearts than yours before
Given the bum's rush and escorted to the door
I've been told I'm not welcome "Don't come back any more"
I've been thrown out of better hearts than yours

I've been kicked out I've been cursed at
Treated like a cuspidor
After lettin' someone use my heart
For moppin' up the floor
Been served restraining orders
When I dared to ask for more
I've maintained my sense of humor
'Though it's really been a chore

I've been thrown out of better hearts than yours before
Given the bum's rush and escorted to the door
I've been told I'm not welcome "Don't come back any more"
I've been thrown out of better hearts than yours
Before
