The Tinman

April 5, 2010


Who stole your heart?
Left you with a space
That no one and nothing can fill
Who stole your heart?
Who took it away?
Knowing that without it you can’t live

Who stole your heart?
The smile from your face?
The innocence the light from your eyes?
Who stole your heart
or did you give it away?
And if so then when and why?

Now all sentiment is gone
Now you have no trust in no one

And remember the tinman
Found he had what he thought he lacked
Remember the tinman
Go find your heart and take it back

Who stole your heart
Maybe no one can say
One day you will find it I pray

—Tracy Chapman, “Remember the Tinman”
