Cousin i think I've been looking a little longer
Searching for love since i was way younger
Take all your heartbreak and times it by two
Then maybe you'll have a glimpse of what I've been through
Because i have moved so often in my life
I've had many more women to stab my heart with a knife
And you know how there's always someone telling you you won't suffice?
That's at every school, and I've moved more then thrice
You know me cousin, i still have that armor
But cracks in it have been started to show
I don't know if I'll last that much longer
Waiting for my heart's blacksmith to show
