As a girl I live in a million hopes
So I always would keep to myself
And my lessons were learned from the stories and poems
I would steal from a library shelf
Yes the books like the rooms weren't mine to keep
But the words weren't left behind
And I think of them all now when I can't sleep
And a poet who read my mind

As the wise man once wrote
Never give all the heart
Well it's easy to see
He was writing for me
I just wish I could play that part

Yes he scribbled that love
Isn't worth thinking of
That it fades out from kiss to kiss
If I'd just learned those lines
Well just think of the misery I'd miss

As the Irishman said
Don't put your heart up to play
When he warned of the cost
And the heart that he lost
Mr. Yates really paved the way

For the men that I've known
Who have clearly shown
They've been reading him form the start
Cause when it comes to me well
Their kisses come free
But they never give all the heart

When he warned of the cost
And the heart that he lost
Mr. Yates really paved the way

For the men that I've known
Who have clearly shown
They've been reading him form the start
Cause each time that I fall
They never give all the heart
