I want to pull you into pieces. Reconstruct you into someone new. I'll snip your ears off give you new ones. You'll hear things in a different way. Your smile's been less bright lately. I'll get you brand new shining teeth. Each day your eyes they grow grayer. I'll find you some more vibrant than the greenest grass. Now with your pieces in a pile I'll pick out ones I'd like to keep. The hand that used to grasp mine tightly while we both fell asleep. I'll let you keep your left knee-cap. The one all covered up in scars you got when you were a child. You're bravery battle wounds from falling off your bike. You used to wander miles to find me so I'm gonna find you stronger feet. Your shoulders shook every time you laughed. Now they only carry your weight. I want to make you feel younger. I want to make you feel free. Maybe with all of these new parts and pieces you'll be a little like you used to be. Maybe with your new ears you'll listen when I tell you that I love you. Maybe with your new eyes you'll see me drifting away. Maybe with your new arms you'll stop me from leaving. Maybe with your old heart everything would be okay.

Maybe with your old heart, everything would be okay.
