Nina Nesbitt – Heirlooms Lyrics

Heirlooms Lyrics – Nina Nesbitt

I know that you don’t know me yet
I know your name but not the rest
Thought I was good on my own
Then I found somebody and made him home

You and me, we’ve still got far to go
But before we do, I wanted you to know

That I hope you get my brown eyes
And nothing from my darker side
How my mother cares too much
The way my lover lifts me up

And I know I’m not perfect, but
You can have the best I’ve got
All the things I wanna give to you
I’ll pass them down like heirlooms

Pass them down like heirlooms

I’ll carry the weight of my past
But you won’t have to bear any of that
All my selfish ways and anxious heart
I’ll forget when I hold you in my arms

And I hope you get my brown eyes
And nothing from my darker side
How my mother cares too much
The way my lover lifts me up

And I know I’m not perfect, but
You can have the best I’ve got
All the things I wanna give to you
I’ll pass them down like heirlooms

I’ll pass them down like heirlooms
(All of the good, none of the bad, all of the lessons that I’ve ever had)
Heirlooms
(All of the good, none of the bad, all of the lessons that I’ve ever had)
I’ll pass them down like heirlooms
(All of the good, none of the bad, all of the lessons)

You and me, we’ve still got far to go
But before we do, I wanted you to know

That I hope you get my brown eyes
And nothing from my darker side
How my mother cares too much
The way my lover lifts me up

And I know I’m not perfect, but
You can have the best I’ve got
All the things I wanna give to you
(I’ll pass them down like heirlooms)

All the pieces that I’ve saved for you
I’ll pass them down like heirlooms
