Beth Ditto Open Heart Surgery

I’ll open up if you make an incision

I’ll do right by you

All I ask is for your care and precision

And maybe I could pull through

You could’ve saved me if you’d only known better

But you so carelessly

Took me apart and put me back together

Open heart surgery

I was fine at first

Now I assume the worst

When I could overhear

The repercussions of a sad discussion

Another girl in tears

I could’ve saved here if I only knew better

That you so carelessly

Took her apart and put her back together

Open heart surgery

If girls like you and girls like me

Are really a dime a dozen

Why are we in such a high demand

My mother says it’s just a shame you don’t come around too often

Even she’s begun to understand

Just let me know

What you were thinking

I find a way to get along somehow

Just let me go

Don’t leave me hanging

Oh, please don’t fail me now

Just take it slow

Don’t let me suffer

I’m on the verge of an emergency

The final blow

Will make me tougher

Until then you will always be

A danger to me

We should’ve listened to our intuition

But we knew all to well

In addition to our suspicions

Only time could tell

With friends like you I get confused

Who needs enemies

We’ve been here too many times before

Open heart surgery

If girls like you and girls like me

Are really a dime a dozens

Why are we in such a high demand

My mother says it’s just a shame you don’t come around too often

Even she’s begun to understand

Just let me know

What you were thinking

I find a way to get along somehow

Just let me go

Don’t leave me hanging

Oh, please don’t fail me now

Just take it slow

Don’t let me suffer

I’m on the verge of an emergency

The final blow

Will make me tougher

Until then you will always be

A danger to me

A danger to me
