Your Brain's Not Your Heart

She wore a dress from the days of Mark Twain
I was wondering if she'd ever give back my brain
'Cause I think of her still every now and again
But I have to use some other part

I was walking through town but I had no idea
Just where I was bound, I just wanted to see a
Few smiling faces looking at me, the ones there though
They never did start

When the world's got it in for you
And you just don't know what to do
You know I've learned a thing or two
Just remember: your brain's not your heart

Oh the shape of her legs, I can still see her toes
I remember her face and the way that it glows
Ah but I'll never see her again I suppose
So I'd better forget her, be smart

When the world's got it in for you
And you just don’t know what to do
You know I've learned a thing or two
Just remember: your brain’s not your heart

And I think of her now as I'm singing this song
And I wish she was with me and singing along
But I picture the image and I know that it's wrong
Only aliens travel through time

She wore a dress from the days of Mark Twain
I was wondering if she'd ever give back my brain
But when I get so bad that I start to complain
I remember: your brain's not your heart
