Here Is A Heart Lyrics

here is a heart. here is a heart
i made it for you, so take it
battered and braised
grilled and sautéed
just how you like it, like it
you know i live to fill you up

blood of my blood,
dripping with love
i bring you a thing
you need most
silent between
supplies and machines
i hang in the corners like a ghost
you know i live to be seen through

no better way that i can see
to spend all the time
while you're asleep
when holding your hands
inside of mine, mmmm
i wanna be here and nowhere else
rationing off bits of myself
so i can crumble at your side

sleep like the dead
through the noise in your head
while monitors click
and whirr and glow
i'm with you all day
and i still would stay
tomorrow and onward
just this close
you know i live to keep you safe, oh

no better way that i can see
to spend all the time
while you're asleep
when holding your hands
inside of mine
i wanna be here and nowhere else
rationing off bits of myself
so i can crumble at your side

i can't explain it
but i have to try
if you evaporate
the seas will rise
'til they devour the sky

here is a heart. here is a heart
i made it for you, so take it
battered and braised
grilled and sautéed
just how you like it, like it

no better way that i can see
to spend all the time
while you're asleep
when holding your hands
inside of mine
i wanna be here and nowhere else
rationing off bits of myself
so i can crumble at your side

This is a song about being with someone who is emotionally unavailable--only there for affection when he/she's unconscious--but still serving them constantly, as well as you can. It's a song about your entire life being consumed by someone else, to the extent that you stop moving forward, stop getting stronger or smarter, just get stuck in a holding pattern--even though they don't give you anything in return.

I think this song is either about her loved one being in a coma -
"Silent between supplies and machines", "Sleep like the dead through the noise in your head/While monitors click and whirr and glow", "No better way that I can see to spend all the time/While you're asleep"
- OR about the person possibly needing a heart transplant, hence the mention of the heart, though I'm not sure why it's being presented as a meal..

In reality, it's a very sad song.

This song is basicaly saying that she made a heart for him to steal and she made it just how he or she liked it. This song has a very deep meaning if you listen to it and really pay attention. Its a beautiful song.
