I'm looking for another heart, a new one, por favor,

       See, mine is cold and broken - I don't want it anymore ...

It served me well for quite a while, and beat with rhythm, sure,

       But its seams are torn and ragged since I heard "goodbye" from her.

I only want a meager one - I don't plan to use it much,

       Not for joy or hope or loving, just pumping blood and such.

I won't need help exchanging it, of that, I have no doubt ...

       There's no surgery required ... she already cut it out.
