Elastic Heart

I saw you across the street
Hiding 'neath your pink umbrella
I ran for cover too
Behind some big business fella
I guess we think it's easier
Just to feign shortsightedness
Anyway I can't afford the pain
Of an even bigger mess

We've already said goodbye, why won't my heart
Learn it's for the best?

The stuff you put in your hair
Made it bounce as you went by
I can't smell it any more
In the bed where you used to lie
So what if I do know secrets
About your beauty regime?
Your face in my mirror might as well
Never have been

We've already said goodbye, when will my heart
Figure what it means?
We've already said goodbye but my heart
Don't know what it means

I watched you turn the corner
All hair and heel spring
Already you're mind's moving on
To the next thing
I want an elastic heart
Like the one you got
The kind that snaps back into shape
Whether ready or not

We've already said goodbye
We've already said goodbye
We've already said goodbye but my heart
Doesn't get the plot
