Built To Last

Oh, they don't build a heart like they used to
These days, they might as well be made of glass
And when the going gets hard, they start to crack, then they fall apart
But a love like ours, babe, it was built to last

And I know that it ain't much to look at
Yeah, the frame ain't bent and the motor's running good
Yeah, the paint, it might be chipping and second gear keeps slipping
But trust me, there's still plenty of good miles left underneath the hood
Oh, they don't build a heart like they used to
These days, they might as well be made of glass
And when the going gets hard, they start to crack, then they fall apart
But a love like ours, babe, it was built to last

And I know it's hard to see clearly
But we can turn this heap of nothing into home
Yeah, it won't break the wallet and the foundation's solid
And there's something to be said about a sturdy set of bones

And some folks might call it a fixer-upper
It don't sparkle, it ain't shiny, it ain't new
But every dent and every ding, the good, the bad and the in-between
These scars are just the stories of the storms we've made it through

Oh, they don't build a heart like they used to
These days, they might as well be made of glass
'Cause when the going gets hard, they start to crack, then they fall apart
But a love like ours, babe, it was built to last
Yeah, a love like ours, babe, it was built to last

Oh, they don't build a heart like they used to
