Strokes – Heart In A Cage lyrics

I don't feel better
When I'm fucking around
And I don't write better
When I'm stuck in the ground
So don't teach me a lesson
Cause I've already learned
Yeah the sun will be shining
And my children will burn

Oh the heart beats in it's cage

I don't want what you want
I don't feel what you feel
See I'm stuck in a city
But I belong in a field

Yea we got left, left x 7

Now it's three in the morning and
Youґre eating alone

Oh the heart beats in it's cage

All our friends they're laughing at us
All of those you love you mistrust
Help me I'm just not quite myself
Look around there's no one else there
And I went to the concert and I fought through the crowd
Yes I got too excited when I thought you were around

Oh he gets left, left x 7

I'm sorry you were thinking I would steal your fire.
Oh the heart beats in it's cage
Yes the heart beats in it's cage

Oh the heart beats in it's cage
