Gotye – Hearts A Mess lyrics
Pick apart
The pieces of your heart
And let me peer inside

Let me in
Where only your thoughts have been
Let me occupy your mind
As you do mine


You have lost
Too much love
To fear, doubt and distrust

(It's not enough)
You just threw away the key
To your heart

You don't get burned
('Cause nothing gets through)
It makes it easier
(Easier on you)
But that much more difficult for me
To make you see...

Love ain't fair
So there you are
My love

Your heart's a mess
You won't admit to it
It makes no sense
But I'm desperate to connect
And you, you can't live like this


Your heart's a mess
You won't admit to it
It makes no sense
But I'm desperate to connect
And you, you cant't live like this

Your heart's a mess
You won't admit to it
It makes no sense
But I'm desperate to connect
And you, you cant't live like this

Love ain't safe
You won't get hurt if you stay chaste
So you can wait
But I don't wanna waste my love

    I believe this song is about the man who is trying to love and show affection to the girl he loves, but she was hurt in a previous relationship, therefore refutes his love, for the fear she might get hurt badly again. It tells how she threw away the key to her heart and by this I think he means that this girl is to scared of getting hurt again she has given up on love and no longer lets anyone else into her love life. The man really want to help her and show her that love is real and that he wants to love her because he won't hurt her
    the lyrics are a display of how he is trying to convince the girl to open up and love again. Obviously the man who hurt her previously had only wanted a physical relationship whereas she might have loved him dearly, and when the man refutes her love she becomes closed off and no longer willing to lovee again for the fear in her heart.
