I'm a little rusty with love,
With my ticking clockwork heart,
But if you find you must know the time,
Just wind me up and watch me start.

I find I'm quite the coward,
No courage in springs and gears,
Open me up and you'll just find dust,
And all of my empty fears.

I'm awkward with feelings and words,
I'm really not worth your time,
But if you look under all my rust,
You'll find I'm pretty sublime.

I may not be the smartest kid,
But I think I've got a brain,
I'm hardwired with common sense,
I've just gone a little insane.

So please take the time to dust me off,
And see if you can deal with the rust,
I'll admit I'm not made to order,
But with you maybe I could adjust.
