Matchbox Twenty – Hand Me Down lyrics

Someday they'll find your small town world on a big town avenue
Gonna make you like the way they talk when they're talking to you
Gonna make you break out of the shell cause they tell you to
Gonna make you like the way they lie better than the truth
They'll tell you everything you wanted someone else to say
They're gonna break your heart, yeah

[Chorus:]

From what I've seen
Youre just a one more hand me down
Cause no ones tried to give you what you need
So lay all your troubles down
I am with you now

Somebody ought to take you in
Try to make you love again
Try to make you like the way they feel
When they're under your skin
Never once did think theyd lie when they're holding you
You wonder why they haven't called
When they said theyd call you
You start to wonder if you're ever gonna make it by
Youll start to think you were born blind

[Chorus:]

From what I've seen
Youre just a one more hand me down
Cause no ones tried to give you what you need
So lay all your troubles down
I am with you now

I'm here for the hard times
The straight to your heart times
Whenever it aint easy
You can stand up against me
And maybe rely on me
And cry on me, yeah
Oh no, no, no

Some day they'll open up your world
Shake it down on a drawing board
Do their best to change you
They still can't erase you

[Chorus:]

From what I've seen
Youre just a one more hand me down
Cause no ones tried to give you what you need
So lay all your troubles down
I am with you now

Lay them down on me
Oh yeah
Youre just one more hand me down
And all those nots don't give you what you need
So lay all your troubles down... On me
