By
I built myself some new lungs
Because you took my breath away
I installed a better voice box
So I could find the words to say
I molded myself some new eyes
More confident than before
I shaped myself a nicer face
Much less easy to ignore
Removed my stomach’s butterflies
And made it so I won’t sweat
Just like every time I see you
Every time our eyes have met
Last of all, a brand-new heart
It’s a version 3.0
It’s so strong that it won’t break
Even after you say no
