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
Mmm
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
Wile 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
Mmm
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
Mmm
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.
