if i only had a heart

sometimes i feel like the tin man...

tin man When a man’s an empty kettle,
He should be on his mettle.
And yet I’m torn apart.
Just because I’m presumin’
That I could be kind-a human,
If I only had a heart.

I’d be tender — I’d be gentle
And awful sentimental
Regarding Love and Art
I’d be friends with sparrows..
…And the boy who shoots the arrows
If I only had a heart.

Picture me….a balcony….
Above a voice sings low.
Wherefore art thou, Romeo?

I hear a beat….how sweet!
Just to register emotion
Jealousy — Devotion —
And really feel the part,
I could stay young and chipper,
And I’d lock it with a zipper,
If I only had a heart!
