lyrics

she's a wild one, she convinced herself of that,
she's just pages of a magazine, torn out for scrap,
she'll race you anywhere, just as long as she comes first,
but she'll only take the love she thinks she's worth.

She'd be my huckleberry, with a pistol in each hand,
quote passages from books i'll probly never understand,
she'll stone me til i'm bloody, til my hearts about to burst,
but she'll only take the love she thinks she's worth
yeah she'll only take the love she thinks she's worth.

Chorus
Just give it up, just a little bit,
it's not the burden, that you think it is.

She's rolling stone, yeah she's a lover and a tease,
she's that paralyzing feeling that you get before you sneeze,
she'll make a castle crumble just to hear stones hit the earth,
but she'll only take the love she thinks she's worth,
yeah she'll only take the love she thinks she's worth.

Chorus,

I'm a spyglass, to the fissure in her throat,
i'm the space between the words she thought before she got em' wrote,
it's a holy blessed thing, to see her smile at a curse
but she'll only take the love she thinks she's worth,
yeah she'll only take the love she thinks she's worth.

Chorus

Bridge
Don't be afraid, to push that stone away
