Earthquake

  • Earthquake
You don’t want my whole heart
Just the easy part
You say let’s keep it easy just for a while
You say it with a smile
And I’m ok for a while
Sooner or later the truth has got to come out
I should’ve seen through you
Should’ve been wide awake
Before you hit I should’ve felt the earthquake
Because you don’t want my whole heart.
Don’t want the damaged part
You’re no mechanic
You’re not going to make no repairs
You want to drive it off the lot
You want the part that revs and runs hot
You want to lay in the tall grass, I guess that’s ok baby.
But hey–
I Should have seen through you
Should’ve seen the faults and all the breaks
Before you hit I should’ve felt the earthquake
Let’s burn baby burn baby all night long
Come on burn baby burn baby all night long
I want to burn rubber baby to the light of dawn
Because I Know you don’t want my whole heart
I should have seen through you
I should have seen the faults and all of the breaks
I should’ve known better than that
Oh well, what can I say?
You don’t want my whole heart, just the easy part
You don’t want my whole heart,
Just the part that revs and runs hot
Everything’ll be fine, don’t want to hear about it
Ain’t got time for that now, don’t want to hear about it
I just want to feel good, don’t want to care about it
You don’t want my whole heart
I ain’t got time for that now
