lyrics

I don’t wanna be alone in this bed
won’tcha give me somethin I can take apart
I don’t wanna listen to the yellin in my head
or the cryin of my idiot heart

idiot heart
I shoulda left you at home
you gimme nothin but hard love, bad luck
when you gonna leave me me alone?

he was a dark-eyed man and I knew right away
it was gonna take a turn for the worst
so I said ‘hey, heart, if you’re gonna go crazy
give a little warning first”

idiot heart
I shoulda left you at home
you gimme nothin but hard love, bad luck
when you gonna leave me me alone?

ooh, you’re an idiot
a lunatic a nitwit
and you make a fool outta me
oh, you’re a sad sack
subtle as a heart attack
hey heart, when you gonna let me be?

well it doesn’t take a lot to get you started
and I don’t know how to turn you back off
I guess there ain’t no rest for the idiot-hearted
until your heart finally stops

idiot heart
I shoulda left you at home
you gimmme nothin but hard love, bad luck
when you gonna leave me me alone?

idiot heart
I guess I really shoulda known
you gimmme nothin but hard love, bad luck
when you gonna leave me alone?
you gimmme nothin but hard love, bad luck
hey, heart: leave me alone.
