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

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.

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 :)

I've found it. My internet white whale. 5 years ago, I heard this song on a university of phoenix commercial, and tonight I finally found it.

Jake Zahradnik

Congrats, thats a great feeling. One of mine was Mr. Right by Sara Craig.

John Drakakis

Yeah, music can be amazing ... magic! Like this song! I'm still searching for mine. I can hear it in my head. I truly hope it exists.

Frank McGuire

Congrats. 5 years is a pretty long quest. I hope that you can leave that behind and enjoy...

I looked up this song when the commercial was still airing so it wasn't too difficult. But I feel your pain because I haven't always done that. I still have a few white whales from commercials that aired as early as 2003...

There really is no feeling like FINALLY tracking down a song you only know vague descriptors about & can't find.
