lyrics

v.1
Thrift store happiness, an almost fit
But there's an itch underneath it all
For something other than off-brand hands to hold
But there are no returns, though you're not sold
You'll stick around till you wear down

c.
But look, you're kinda threadbare too
Masquerading as brand new
Maybe we're all gently used
Of course, when everything is on display
You reinforce that you're okay
Sew patches over all your stains

And roll up what hangs on your sleeve
Protect it while it's still pristine
It's trendy to be torn apart
But you can't barter with a battered heart

v.2
Secondhand joy, you find a boy
Hidden in a stack of faded jeans
And stand there staring a moment too long
In swoops a bolder soul, and he's gone
So you move on

[rep. chorus]

Roll up what hangs on your sleeve
Protect it while it's still pristine
It's trendy to be torn apart
But you can't barter with a battered heart
