I've got a heart for sale
It's a little worn, and torn, and pale
If it beats, then I'll make you a deal
I'll give it to you for free,
If you can love it, carefully,
And get, it away from me.

(Chorus)
I know that I
Should keep it for a while
And learn what it
May need to survive
But I can't, no I won't
Make it through
One more loveless bruise

I can't seem to get it right
But I try, and try, and try
In the end, I just lose all the fights
And crawl back home to hope my heart
Can make it through
Another night of the same, Oh pain.

(Chorus)
I know that I
Should keep it for a while,

And learn what it
May need to survive
But I can't, No I won't
Make it through, One more loveless bruise

(Bridge)
I'll give you a try
If your not satisfied,
Then send it back
And I'll mend the cracks
And I'll look for another buyer.

(Chorus)
I know that I
Should keep it for a while
And learn what it needs to survive
But I can't, No I won't
Make it through
One more loveless bruise

Tired of being used
You don't know, What I've been through.

    Tengo un corazon en venta
    Esta un poco usado, y roto, y palido
    Si late, entonces te hare un trato
    Te lo dare gratis
    Si logras amarlo, cuidadosamente,
    Y llevarlo, lejos de mi

    (coro)
    Se que
    Deberia quedarmelo por un tiempo
    Y aprender que necesita
    Para sobrevivir
    Pero no puedo, no yo no
    Le hare pasar
    Un moreton de desamor mas

    No puedo pretender hacer lo correcto
    Pero intento, e intento, e intento
    Al final, solo pierdo todas esas peleas
    Y me arrastro de vuelta a casa
    Para esperar que mi corazon
    Logre aguantar otra noche
    Del mismo, oh dolor.

    (coro)
    Se que
    DeberÃia quedarmelo por un tiempo
    Y aprender que necesita
    Para sobrevivir
    Pero no puedo, no yo no
    Le hare pasar
    Un moreton de desamor mas

    (puente)
    Te dare una probadita,
    Si no estas satisfecho,
    Entonces envialo de vuelta
    Y arreglare las grietas
    Y buscare otro postor.

    (coro)
    Se que
    Deberia quedarmelo por un tiempo
    Y aprender que necesita
    Para sobrevivir
    Pero no puedo, no yo no
    Le hare pasar
    Un moreton de desamor mas

    Cansada de ser usada
    Tu no sabes, por lo que he pasado!

    I think this is about a girl who wears her heart on her sleeve. And so she let's these guys in but she keeps getting hurt over and over. And so throughout the song she is talking to this new guy and telling him that she's tired of getting used, and her heart broken, and she'll give her heart to him if he promises to take care of it.
