Hand Me Down Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Someday they'll find your small town world on a big town avenue
Gonna make you like the way they talk when they're talking to you
Gonna make you break out of the shell 'cause they tell you to
Gonna make you like the way they lie better than the truth
They'll tell you everything you wanted someone else to say
They're gonna break your heart, yeah

From what I've seen
You're just a one more hand me down
'Cause no one's tried to give you what you need
So lay all your troubles down
I am with you now

Somebody ought to take you in, try to make you love again
Try to make you like the way they feel when they're under your skin
Never once did think they'd lie when they're holding you
You wonder why they haven't called, when they said they'd call you
You start to wonder if you're ever gonna make it by
You'll start to think you were born blind

From what I've seen
You're just a one more hand me down
'Cause no one's tried to give you what you need
So lay all your troubles down
I am with you now

I'm here for the hard times
The straight to your heart times
Whenever it ain't easy
You can stand up against me
And maybe rely on me
And cry on me, yeah
Oh, no, no, no

Some day they'll open up your world
Shake it down on a drawing board
Do their best to change you
They still can't erase you

From what I've seen
You're just a one more hand me down
'Cause no one's tried to give you what you need
So lay all your troubles down
I am with you now, lay them down on me, oh yeah

You're just one more hand me down
And all those knots don't give you what you need
So lay all your troubles down on me
