    "Hand Me Down" Lyrics

    Matchbox Twenty

    Someday they'll find your small town world
    On a big town avenue
    Gonna make you like the way they talk
    When they're talking to you
    Gonna make you break out of your shell
    'Cause they tell you to
    Gonna make you like the way they lie
    Better than the truth
    They'll tell you everything
    You wanted someone else to say
    They're gonna break your heart, yeah

    From what I've seen
    You're just one more hand me down
    'Cause no one's tried to give you
    What you need
    So lay all your troubles down
    I am with you now

    Somebody oughta take you in
    Try to make you love again
    Try to make you like the way they feel
    When they're under your skin
    Never once do you think that they would lie
    When they're holding you
    Then you wonder why they haven't called
    When they said they'd call you
    You'll start to wonder
    If you're ever gonna make it by

    You'll start to think
    You were born blind


    I'm here for the hard times
    The straight to your heart times
    When living ain't easy
    You can stand up against me
    And maybe rely on me
    And cry on me, yeah

    Oh no, no, no

    Someday they'll open up your world
    Shake you down to the drawing board
    They'll do their best to change you
    They still can't erase you

    Lay them down on me
    Oh yeah
    You're just one more hand me down
    And all those nights
    Don't give you what you need
    So lay all your troubles down
    On me
