​I Gave Up My Eyes To A Man Who Was Blind

This song is by Ballboy and appears on the album The Sash My Father Wore And Other Stories (2003).

I gave up my eyes to a man who was blind
And I gave all my strength to a man who was tired
I gave my desire to a man with more fire
And I lost my good looks to a girl I admired

I lent out my voice to a small group of choir boys
And I gave up my hands to a man who made toys
And all that I kept was the heart in my chest
And I hoped that someday I could give it away

But before my chance came, you broke it in two
But if you had just asked, I would've given it to you

I went to great lengths for a cause that was spent
And I lost all my friends to a lack of commitment
I gave my best clothes to a man who proposed
To a woman I loved, but I didn't really know

And all I have left is the heart in my chest
And I'd give it to you if I thought you'd be impressed
But what would you do with a heart split in two?
And a heart that won't work is of no use to you

So I laid my heart down in a box in the ground
And I threw on some earth, and I tried to forget
That a heart that won't work is not even worth
A glimpse of your smile or an hour of your time

A heart that won't work, it's not even worth
A glimpse of your smile or an hour of your time
