Jenny Owen Youngs – 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 sauteed

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
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
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 sauteed
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

    I heard this the first time and I thought it was so beautiful and romantic. But I've only recently looked at the lyrics that I previously ignored - its quiet dark this song, and the music and the instruments used camouflage its depth and darkness.
    I tried imagining this as about a couple, but I couldn't make sense of it. To love someone so much that you'd destroy yourself completely. I could only think of a mother doing that for her child. So to me this is a mother singing to her child.
    Genius in a strange, beautiful way.
