The Listening Chair
Imogen Heap Lyrics


Cat, blue, piano
Are just some of the things I like
So the more that I see of them in my day
The better I sleep at night

Mum, dad, Giles, (Lizzie) and Juliet (Uncle James)
Are just some of the people that I love
So the more of all them I can get in my day
The better I'll sleep at night
I can moonwalk, build castles, play ping pong, talk to animals,
Hold my breath for a really long time, and tell the future
Are just six of the things I can do
And the more I can fit of these things in my day
The better I sleep at night
Ahh, the better I sleep at night

Composer or maybe an astronaut
This is what I'm gonna be when I grow up
I know 'cause I sing out all through the day
I fly through space by night
The teasing, the fighting, the hospitals
I don't wanna go anymore
I put a brave face on, battle through the day
But I might cry myself to sleep (Sleep)

Pinch, pinch, punch, punch
Dancing 'round the car park after lunch
Copy cats, gold stars, cola cubes for good marks
Shy type, show off
Your mom's got her masters, so what?
Swap stickers, best friends, knight rider
Whatcha tell the time again
Popular, blonde hair, all the pretty girls sit over there
Sister's in school, he's cool, our brother knows karate

What do I do to make you hate me so much?
Is it the clothes I wear? (The way I speak?)
Wonder bra thrown 'round the German classroom
Me wouldn't understand
I'll never live it down
Hiding in the bushes
Or tip-toeing down the corridor
Stop it, you'll make me laugh
(Why would I ever need to know this?)
And somehow I'll get through
I never want this to end
This night, this music, with you in my arms
Switch in to the real world
No idea what I'm doing
But here it goes (there she goes)

I've found the place, feels like home
But I caught you kissing her
So suddenly I'm on my own
There's just not enough hours in the day
Things are going great, I can't complain
When I stumble to bed, I sleep like a baby
Finding my feet
Make love, make money, make a difference
Finding my feet
Connect (connect)
Finding my feet
Make money, make a difference
How d'you do that again?
Connect (Connect together)

I find myself gazing out of the window for no reason
When did I stop eating bread, and cheese? I love cheese
I want to have children,
But I don't want to have children, you know?
Something nibbling, a feeling I can't quite explain (A question)
Online, offline, like I'm not really here (A choir)
Awake or sleeping, somehow can't tell the difference (A question)
Bright light outside, dark deep down within

It's a cover up, it was a cover up operation all along
Honing in, I'm honing in on the heart of it all
Toughen up, I've got to toughen up
'Cause I'm breaking it all apart
What's at the heart
What's at the heart of it all?

Who am I now?
Who am I now?

Cat, blue, piano
Are just some of the things I like
So the more that I see of them in my day
The better I sleep at night

Mum, dad, Giles, and Juliet,
Are just some of the people I love
So the more of all them I can get in my day
The better I’ll sleep at night

I can moonwalk, build castles, play ping pong, talk to animals, hold my breath for a really long time … and tell the future
Are just six of the things I can do
And the more I can fit of these things in my day
The better I sleep at night
Ohhhhhh, the better I sleep at night

Composer or maybe an astronaut
This is what I’m gonna be when I grow up
I know cause I sing out all through the day
I fly through space by night

The teasing, the fighting, the hospitals
I don’t wanna go anymore
I put a brave face on, battle through the day
But I might cry myself to sleep

Pinch, pinch, punch, punch
Dancing round the car park after lunch
Copy cats, gold stars, cola cubes for good marks
Shy type, show off
Your mom’s got her masters, so what?
Swap stickers, best friends, knight rider
whatcha tell the time again
Popular, blonde hair, all the pretty girls sit over there
Sisters in school, he’s cool, our brother knows karate

What do I do to make you hate me so much?
Is it the clothes I wear? The way I speak?
Wonder bra thrown ‘round the German classroom
You wouldn’t understand
I’ll never live it down
Hiding in the bushes
Or tip-toeing down the corridor
Stop it, you’ll make me laugh
Why would I ever need to know this?
Somehow I’ll get through
I never want this to end
This night, this music, with you in my arms
Switch in to the real world
No idea what I’m doing
But here it goes (there she goes)

I’ve found the place, feels like home
But I caught you kissing her
So suddenly I’m on my own
There’s just not enough hours in the day
Things are going great, I can’t complain
When I stumble to bed, I sleep like a baby
Finding my feet
Make love, make money, make a difference
Finding my feet
Connect (connect)
Finding my feed
Make love, make money, make a difference
How’d you do that again?
Connect together

Ahhhhhh, I find myself gazing out of the window for no reason
Ahhhhh, when did I stop eating bread… and cheese? I love cheese
Ahhhh, I want to have children
Ahhhhh, but I don’t want to have children, you know?
Something niggling, a feeling I can’t quite explain
(Questions) online, offline, like I’m not really here
Awake or sleeping, somehow can’t tell the difference
Twilight outside, dark deep down within
It’s a cover up, it was a cover up operation, oh no
honing in, I’m honing in on the heart of it all
Toughen up, I’ve got to toughen up
Coz I’m breaking it all apart
What’s at the heart
What’s at the heart of it all?

Who am I now?

Who am I now?



Дмитрий Гаврилов

@MultiBurst i think it's
I’ve found the place, feels like home
But I caught you kissing her
So suddenly I’m on my own
There’s just not enough hours in the day
Things are going great, I can’t complain
When I stumble to bed, I sleep like a baby
Finding my feet
Make love, make money, make a difference
Finding my feet
Connect (connect)
Finding my feed
Make love, make money, make a difference
How’d you do that again?
Connect together

El Australiano

Her musical and creative vision is pretty much unmatched by anyone else around. This video is brilliant in that it so effectively communicates the often chaotic way in which our mind works. She verbalizes and visually portrays some of the mundane (but actually a little wacky) stuff we all day in our daily lives as we try to get through this thing called life and come to an understanding of who we are in it.

Yeghor

often chaotic way in which "your" minds work.

I love how progressively more complex this song gets as she ages. So damn smart.

Nick Piacente

She recently released a demo for the next verse on her app!

Dan Fallon

@MemoryThief well yeah, every 7 years she's going to add another minute to the song. Thats the plan anyway.

MemoryThief

So you're saying that in a few years when she has become older, because of that fact, the song will have changed somehow becoming more complex‽ That's more than smart, it's temporally transcendent and deific.

The lyrics... They're just matchless. With a few words, she spoke volumes.
