lyrics

I’ve got a needle, been sewing all night
Trying to fix what don’t fit right.
You’ve got a heart halfway torn,
Hole in the middle and the edges worn.

When I reach out for your hand,
All I get is a ragged strand.
And I would give you everything,
But you’d leave me hanging by a string.

Some other lover tore you up,
Ran you ragged, loved you rough.
Trust in tatters, faith all frayed,
Sure your love will be betrayed.

I’ve got a needle and I’ve got thread,
But I can’t get inside your head.
And if I wanna leave then I got the right,
But I’ve got a needle and I’m sewing all night.

You’ve got a thread that runs to me,
Thin enough that I can’t see.
Strong enough I can’t break free,
Long enough that I’m lonely.

It takes two to patch things up,
Make it whole where holes are cut,
Stitch together threadbare hearts,
Make a new love from old parts.

I’ve got a needle, been sewing all night
Trying to fix what don’t fit right.
You’ve got a heart halfway torn,
Hole in the middle and the edges worn.
