She takes more than she can stand
in a town full of broken plans.
All that's lost is all she had
and her tears crash onto the sand.
She's burned out.
She stayed with an empty man,
Who took everything she had
and watched it burn.
He burned out. He burned her out.
I used to perform surgery
on girls in the infirmary.
I wonder how it would be
if someone could fix me too.
It's not like the real thing
because there is no such thing.
Just something you read about.
But no one reads anymore.
I don't believe in love.
So I can't get enough.
And I get burned out just trying.
But I see her with more than she can stand
from her empty man with empty plans.
And I wonder how it would feel to take her hand
and try to make her happy.
