I said I loved you then I turned and walked away
I’ve done some damage dear but what is there to say
My heart it did not lie to me nor did I lie to you
But just because a heart’s sincere that doesn’t make it true

My daddy told me when I was just a baby girl
You’ll be a heartbreaker my darling little pearl
I didn’t want to hurt no one but I seemed to have a knack
The world it was my oyster there were shells I had to crack

Give me a pacemaker to steady up my heart
Give me a pacemaker to pace me
Before I tear myself apart

I’ve tried to change my ways and just stand by my man
I would be steadfast but I don’t know if I can
No claim upon my loyalty is ever quite complete
My heart’s a bit defective it’s got an irregular beat
