The Heart Is a Muscle Lyrics

The Heart Is a Muscle (强心脏) - Gang of Youths

Written by:David Le'aupepe

Break me off a piece of that

 

And mix it in with a little wine

 

With someone warm and smart I guess

 

With a heart in first

 

And a soul behind

 

And I

Won't give in

 

'Coz I

 

Wanna try again

 

There will be no years of silence

In the shadow of regret

 

I won't let it so betray me

 

Though my soul got used to it

 

I will look at love as more than

Just an instrument of pain

 

And will give myself completely

To the moving and the strange

 

'Coz I wanna overcome

 

And try to love someone

 

I will not spend the years depleted

Of my willingness to try

It won't hurt this way forever

It ain't worth the overtime

I'm not looking for redemption

Nor some shallow kind of bliss

 

Lay me down and kiss me deeply

Show me everything I missed

 

I haven't had enough

 

And I wanna love someone

 

I will not hurt like this forever

I'm responding the call

 

While there's speakers in the outfield

Blasting out my favourite song

 

I will not play this out discreetly

It is real and unashamed

 

I am human now and terrified

But want it all the same

'Coz I wanna overcome

 

And try to love someone

 

'Coz the heart

 

The heart

 

The heart

 

The heart is a muscle

 

And I wanna make it strong

 

'Coz the heart

 

The heart

 

The heart

 

The heart is a muscle now

 

I wanna make it strong

 

I let bad love betray me once

 

And I was barely outta high school then

 

And I guess I fear the same results

 

That none will take me as I am

 

I wanna be loved

 

I wanna be whole again

So tuck my hair behind my ears

And touch my soul again

 

The window is wide

 

The post unfulfilled

 

And I just ask you to be patient

If you'll have me still

 

'Coz I wanna open up

 

And try to love someone

 

'Coz I wanna overcome

 

And try to love someone

 

The heart

 

The heart

 

The heart

 

The heart is a muscle

 

The heart

 

The heart

 

The heart

 

The heart is a muscle now

 

The heart

 

The heart

 

The heart

 

The heart is a muscle now

 

I wanna make it strong
