The Bleeding Heart Show
The New Pornographers Lyrics


I leapt across three or four beds into your arms
Where I had hidden myself somewhere in your charm
Our golden handshake has been smashed into this shape
It's taken magic to a primitive new place
Watch them run
Although it's
The minimum
Heroic

We hunched together in one chair out on the deck
In snow that froze and fell down on the modern set
It looked as if I picked your name out of a hat
Next thing you know you are asleep in someone's lap
Watch them run
Although it's
The minimum
Heroic

We quit the room
Quit so our thoughts could rest
Rest them, I'll never move
That's when we grab a hold
Of whatever it is we fell into

Lousy with your content
With what the majestic cannot find
In business of your lives
The perception, it is wrong, mile after mile
The phantom taste drinking wine from your heels

We have arrived too late to play
The bleeding heart show
We have arrived too late to play
The bleeding heart show
We have arrived too late to play
The bleeding heart show
We have arrived too late to play
The bleeding heart show
We have arrived too late to play
The bleeding heart show
We have arrived
The bleeding heart

Where I had hidden myself somewhere in your charm 
Our golden handshake has been smashed into this shape
It's taken magic to a primitive new place

Quit so our thoughts could rest 
Rest them, I'll never move

We have arrived too late to play

We have arrived too late to play 
The bleeding heart show
We have arrived too late to play 
The bleeding heart show
We have arrived too late to play 
The bleeding heart show
We have arrived 
The bleeding heart

The propulsive build-up of the rhythm section after 2:30, a cathartic shift into high gear from all that has built up to it - the rolling harmony vocals just preceding it not least - is one of this incredible band's most joyously transcendent moments, which is saying something.

Dave Miller

@Not Another yea that chorus is super fun when they play live. everyone joins in. Anyone going to see them in Seattle next month? Playing entirety of Mass Romantic (including Mystery Hours which I don't think they've ever done live) and Twin Cinema.

just to say I love this comment.

Seeing them for the first time, soon.

I love singing the wrong lyrics: "we have a right to love today ... the bleeding heart show." I couldn't stop crying at that concert with 2,000 people singing the end of this song. What an incredibly special band.

El Stötzo

Yes. All of it. Thanks for putting it in Words :)

This is a good song, but it becomes transcendent when the closing chorus kicks in. So, so good.

Hope Lines

One of their masterpieces! Rising pulse and crashing drums.

Erik Schultz

This evokes such a feeling of childhood for me. I have no idea why but whenever I listen to this song I get a fuzzy feeling of nostalgia.

I can't believe Twin Cinema never seems to make any top 50 album lists for the 2000's.
