On The Loveless



And now The Poetrycooker Brings you a special segment. . .
 
THE HAUNTED GRAMOPHONE!
*
 
I love this song,  Dead Hearts is a song by the musical group  Stars. I discovered it on the Like Crazy OST (love that film). Despite it's  melancholy lyrics, and macabre metaphor,  the music to like crazy has a sound that is astoundingly upbeat - think Arcade Fire meets Barry Louis Polisar (Juno OST's All I Want is You)!
 
And well, the lyrics are below!
 
 

Dead Hearts

Tell me everything that happened,
Tell me everything you saw.
They had lights inside their eyes...
They had lights inside their eyes...
Did you see the closing window,
Did you hear the slamming door?
They moved forward and my heart died...
They moved forward and my heart died...
Please, please tell me what they looked like,
Did they seem afraid of you?
They were kids that I once knew...
They were kids that I once knew...

I can say it, but you won't you believe me.
You say you do, but you don't deceive me.
It's hard to know they're out there,
It's hard to know that you still care.
I can say it, but you won't you believe me.
You say you do, but you don't deceive me.
Dead hearts are everywhere!
Dead hearts are everywhere!

Did you touch them, did you hold them?
Did they follow you to town?
They make me feel I'm falling down...
They make me feel I'm falling down...
Was there one you saw too clearly,
Did they seem too real to you?


They were kids that I once knew...
They were kids that I once knew...

I can say it, but you won't you believe me.
You say you do, but you don't deceive me.
It's hard to know they're out there,
It's hard to know that you still care.
I can say it, but you won't you believe me.
You say you do, but you don't deceive me.
Dead hearts are everywhere!
Dead hearts are everywhere!

I can say it, but you won't you believe me.
You say you do, but you don't deceive me.
It's hard to know they're out there,
It's hard to know that you still care.
I can say it, but you won't you believe me.
You say you do, but you don't deceive me.
Dead hearts are everywhere!
Dead hearts are everywhere!

They were kids that I once knew...
They were kids that I once knew...
Now they're all dead hearts to you...
Now they're all dead hearts to you...
They were kids that I once knew...
They were kids that I once knew...
Now they're all dead hearts to you...
