Brandon Flowers – Diggin' Up The Heart lyrics

[Intro]

[Verse 1]
Tony came back to town
With his cap and gown
That they give him at the state
Him breaking and entering will do that
Tony’s mamma said ‘he’s only human’
Look what the cat dragged in
From his next of kin
Little sister hugs the tin man
Tony, she’s grown
Ain't she’s pretty in her little black dress?
He’s digging up the heart
To know the price he paid

[Pre-Chorus]
You can hear the train
When you’re in the cage
And you can smell the rain
And you can see the sagebrush
Threaten the highway
But you can't drive
And when you finally put the asphalt to the tire
Looks something like Sistine oil and fire
Ripping through the dark
He’s digging up the heart

[Chorus]
Digging up the heart
Digging up the heart
Well it ain't that strange
Any boy can change
Digging up the heart

[Verse 2]
One, two, three, four, five
Oh, me, oh, my
Count the reasons that you shouldn't be messing
With the sons of perdition
That were gonna take you down
With the straight and narrow
We've been dreaming of a place
You just can’t get
Like your burning in a pit
Little brother, you’re lying to yourself
If you think you've changed

[Pre-Chorus 2]
It’s just another heart
Ain't there something strange
When Tony left
They were scratching at the door
In particular, one wanted him more
Her name was Christie
The queen of Humboldt County
3 to 5 is a lifetime at that age
Christie met herself another boy, got engaged
Left him in the dark
He’s digging up the heart

[Chorus 2]
Digging up the heart
Digging up the heart
Well it ain't that strange
Any boy can change
He’s digging up the heart
He’s digging up the heart
Digging up the heart
With a little luck
When the times gets rough
Digging up the heart

[Bridge]
Well the clerk’s got his hands up
And his mind’s on the mark
The 38 beneath the register
He’s digging up the heart

[Chorus 2]

[Tag]
Well it ain't that strange
Even boys can change
Digging up the heart
