Heart In A Cage Lyrics

by Chris Thile

Oh, the heart beats in its cage

Well 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
Yes, the sun will be shining and my children will burn

Oh, the heart beats in its cage

I don't want what you want and I don't feel what you feel
You see I'm stuck in the city but I belong in a field

Oh, we gotta laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh
Now it's three in the morning and you're eating alone

Oh, the heart beats in its cage

All your friends are laughing at us
All the ones you loved you mistrust
Help me now I'm not quite myself
Look around there's no one else left

Well I went to the concert and I fought through the crowd
Guess I got too excited when I thought you were around

O,h I gotta laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh
And I'm sorry you were thinking that I would steal your fire

Oh, the heart beats in its cage
Oh, the heart beats in its cage
