A heart is a fragile thing, Easily broken and hard to mend, Yet the Tin Man hunts it down, Begging to have a beating one. *** The Tin Man has never known, How fragile the heart is, What it means to be alone, The pain of a broken one. *** He cannot know the pain, Of heart rejection, Or of heart rejecting, A pain unlike anything. *** Here is to the Tin Man, Do you really want a heart, With the pain it brings, And the risks of breaking.
