More Hearts Than Mine - Ingrid Andress




The Experience: I guess I'd better warn you... There are more hearts than mine in any relationship...  

Music video: A girl at home with family and friends, both with and without - pre- and post-breakup - her boyfriend. Her family shares every joy - falls in love - and feels every heartache she goes through.

The Meaning of More Hearts Than Mine: You can't just love one single person. If you marry them you marry their family and their world - there are more hearts than mine. If you love her you'll love them. But if you break her heart you'll break theirs too - if we break up I'll be fine but you'll be breaking more hearts than mine. Ingrid Andress walks her boyfriend through the risks and joys of meeting her family's values and her family themselves: mama, dad, sister and even the extended family of longtime friends.

Ask yourself: Do you love someone enough to cherish the people they love?

Album: - 2019

LYRICS:


I can't wait to show you where I grew up
Walk you 'round the foothills of my town
Probably feel like you've been there before
After hearing all the stories I've been telling you
For 6 months now

We'll probably have to sleep in separate bedrooms
Pack a shirt for church because we'll go
I'm not trying to scare you off but
I just thought that we should talk a few things out
Before we hit the road

If I bring you home to mama
I guess I'd better warn you
She falls in love a little faster than I do
And my dad will check your tires
Pour you whiskey over ice and
Take you fishing but pretend that he don't like you
Oh, if we break up, I'll be fine
But you'll be breaking more hearts than mine

My sister's gonna ask a million questions
Say anything she can to turn you red
And when you meet my high school friends
They'll buy you drinks and fill you in
On all the crazy nights I can't outlive

So if I bring you home to mama
I guess I'd better warn you
She falls in love a little faster than I do
And my dad will check your tires
Pour you whiskey over ice and
Buy you dinner but pretend that he don't like you
Oh, if we break up, I'll be fine
But you'll be breaking more hearts than mine

If I bring you home to mama
I guess I'd better warn you
She feels every heartache I go through
And if my dad sees me crying
He'll pour some whiskey over ice and
Tell a lie and say he never really liked you
Oh, if we break up, I'll be fine
But you'll be breaking more hearts than mine
You'll be breaking more hearts than mine
