Lifeline
Imogen Heap Lyrics


Freeze frame on me
Hm, can you read it on my face?
Data mining from old memories

Hm, sunflowers and a smile catching
Hm, welcoming a heartbeat to the family
Light tie lanterns, wish bound in the night

Who, what, when?
All in one stir of a teaspoon
I'm shaken and gasping for air

Lifeline, before and after
In an instant of great white gravity (gravity)
Hold tight, 'cause all is against me
Every cell in my body, brace,
Woah, and keep breathing,
And keep breathing

Gracious future,
Hm, won't you lend a hand to pull me through?
'Cause me and you've got some things we need to see to
(Let's get to work, let's get to work)

Adventures in the multi-verse
Effervescent candlelit closeness
Plus, I feel like I've just got the hang of this living thing

Who, what, when?
All in one stir of a teaspoon
I'm shaken and gasping for air, air, air, air

I will, on one day,
And sometime, in some place,
I've still got some go in me yet

Lifeline, before and after
In an instant of great white gravity (gravity)
Hold tight, 'cause all is against me
Every cell in my body, brace (in my body, brace)

Rise high, cling to the laughters
For that moment of broken tragedy (tragedy)
Bright-eyed, the world is against me
Every cell in my body, brace,
Woah and keep breathing,
Keep breathing,
Still breathing

My bones stay strong,
My days, still long,
My heart has many heartbeats,
And home is where love is

Ah
Ah
Ah
Ah

Lifeline, before and after
In an instant of great white gravity
Hold tight, 'cause all is against me
Every cell in my body, brace

Rise high, cling to the laughters
For that moment of broken tragedy
Bright-eyed, the world is against me
Every cell in my body, brace,

And keep breathing
Keep breathing
And keep breathing
Keep breathing
And keep breathing, ah
Keep

Brutally honest and direct

These arent music. These arent songs.


This is- how can I say?

Poetry brought to optimum boil, seasoned with assorted spices of fluid notes and harmony then served on the most elegant place setting?

Her lyrics mean stuff and the score behind it is not just some crap scooped from a gutter.

I wish she would open a school for classes. I bet people would flock from around the globe!

Thank you for continuously creating such beautiful art. I have been listening to your music for 7 years and I have yet to be disappointed. It has pulled me out of dark places and comforted me during some rough spots in my life. You have been such an inspiration to me for my own art. You are so unique and honest, I love the rawness to your songs and how each sound is intricately placed. I hope you come perform in Austin soon. I have yet to see you live and it's definitely on my bucket list. Getting to meet you/perform for you is as well. ANYWHO, thanks again Imogen. You remain an inspiration to many, please never stop creating. Much love. Xo <3

Sometimes it feels like she made these songs from just messing around but her natural thoughts are so beautifully organized it just ends up being gorgeous

Pure genius here..dear Imogen, our hearts are with you, and who cares if the music industry doesn't appreciate you like they should? Keep making your sublime and meaningful heart-songs and we will love you for the duration.

Paulo Henrique Espirito Santo

Imogen Heap is so consistently amazing. I've been associated with a broad-format radio station for the last 10 years and I've heard thousands of artists in that time, and in my opinion she's the most talented musician in popular music today. She does everything well - lyrics, vocals, production, instrumentation - and she brings so much emotion to everything she does. I can't think of anyone else quite so gifted in so many ways.

Florence & The Black Cats

Holy shit. I litteraly just discovered imogen's music half an hour ago and I've been hooked ever since. Every single random song I listen to, I love. Why did I not know about her?!

Corsair Carl

She has quite the angelic voice, she's also very smart and beautiful, so welcome my friend!
