As a girl I lived in a million homes
So I always would keep to myself
And my lessons were learned from the stories and poems I would steal from a library shelf
Yes the books like the roots weren't mine to keep
But the words weren't left behind
And I think of them all now when I can't sleep
And the poet who read my mind

As the wise men once wrote never give all the heart
Well it's easy to see he was writing for me
I just wish I could play that part
Yes he scribbled that love isn't worth thinking of
That it fades out from kiss to kiss
If I just learned those lines
Well, just think of the misery I'd miss

As the Irish men said don't put your heart up to play
When he warned of the cost and that heart that he lost
Mr. Yates really paved the way
For the men that I've known who have clearly shown
They've been reading him from the start
Cause when it comes to me, well, their kisses come free
But they never give all the heart

When he warned of the cost and the hearts that he lost
Mr. Yates really paved the way
For the men that I've known, well they've clearly shown
They've been reading him from the start
Cause each time that I fall they never give all the heart
