The Wire
HAIM Lyrics


You know I'm bad at communication, it's the hardest thing for me to do
And it's said, it's the most important part that relationships go through
And I give it all away just so I could say that
I know, I know, I know, I know that you're gonna be okay anyway

You know there's no rhyme or reason for the way you turned out to be
I didn't go and try to change my mind, not intentionally
I know it's hard to hear me say it but I can't bear to stay and
I just know, I know, I know, I know, that you're gonna be okay anyway

Always keep your heart locked tight, don't let your mind retire, oh
But I just couldn't take it, I tried hard not to fake it
But I fumbled and when it came down to the wire
It felt right, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled it when it came down to the wire
It felt right, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled it when it came down to the wire, huh

Know you use your imagination, try to make it what you want it to be
Because I'm sorry I did what I did, but it came naturally
And I gave it all away just so I could say that
Well I know, I know, I know, I know that you're gonna be okay anyway

When I tried to keep myself together, after all the opportunities
I try to stay true to you and try to do what you wanted from me
And I'd give it all away just to hear you say that
Well I know, I know, I know, I know that you're gonna be okay anyway

Always keep your heart locked tight, don't let your mind retire, oh
But I just couldn't take it, I tried hard not to fake it
But I fumbled it when it came down to the wire
It felt right, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled it when it came down to the wire
It felt right, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled it when it came down to the wire, huh
Ooh yeah

Always keep your heart locked tight, don't let your mind retire
Always keep your heart locked tight, don't let your mind retire, oh
But I just couldn't take it, I tried hard not to fake it
But I fumbled it when I came down to the wire
But I just couldn't take it, I tried hard not to fake it
But I fumbled it when I came down to the wire
It felt great, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled it when I came down to the wire
It felt great, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled it when I came down to the wire
It felt great, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled it when I came down to the wire
It felt right, oh
But I fumbled it when I came down to the wire
Ooh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
No no, no, no
It felt right
It felt right
It felt right
No, no, no, no
But I fumbled and when I came down to the wire
Yeah

You know I'm bad at communication
It's the hardest thing for me to do
And it's said, it's the most important part
That relationships go through
And I gave it all away just so I could say that
Well I know I know I know I know that you're gonna be OK anyway
You know there's no rhyme
Or reason for the way it turned out to be
I didn't go and try to change my mind
Not intentionally
I know it's hard to hear me say it
But I can't bear to stay in
I just know I know I know I know that you're gonna be OK anywayAlways keep your heart locked tight, don't let your mind retire, oh
But I just couldn't take it
I tried hard not to fake it
But I fumbled and when it came
Down to the wire
It felt right, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled and when it came
Down to the wire
It felt right, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled and when I came
Down to the wireDoes your imagination make you what you want it to be
Because I'm sorry I do what I did but
It came naturally
And I gave it all away, just so I could say that
Well I know I know I know I know that you're gonna be OK anywayWhen I tried to keep myself together
After all the opportunities
I tried to stay true to you
And tried to do what you wanted from me
And I gave it all away
Just to hear you say that
Well I know I know I know I know that you're gonna be OK anywayAlways keep your heart locked tight
Don't let your mind retire, oh
But I just couldn't take it
I tried hard not to fake it
But I fumbled and when it came
Down to the wire
It felt right, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled and when it came
Down to the wire
It felt right, it felt right, oh
But I fumbled and when it came
Down to the wire
Ooh yeahAlways keep your heart locked tight
Don't let your mind retire
Always keep your heart locked tight
Don't let your mind retire, oh
But I just couldn't take it
I tried hard not to fake it
But I fumbled and when it came
Down to the wire
But I just couldn't take it

I worked in production on this music video, and I gotta say, after 17 hours of listening to this song non-stop, I wasn't able to get it out of my head for about 2 weeks after.

Taryn Rowe

So bloody talented these chicks!!

@Not Sure it’s only really hell if the band or the song is bad in some way. Like, if I had to work on a Nickelback music video, I’d probably be upset having the song stuck in my head.

Rob Tierney

17 hours strait? So do you refer to this song as the Wire... OR.... The Loop? lol

Mike Masters

Lucky you!

I’m praying it’s gone as soon as I click out.

I love this, breakups suck but I love seeing the guys cry out out and cope without diving into a bottle or random girl's pants is kind of awesome. It's not pathetic, it's healing, I love that they call each other to cry it out.

Feminist nonsense. Those dudes are bigger girls than their girlfriends.
