Human Racing
St. Vincent Lyrics


Romeo, where'd you go?
It's been years and still no sign
But, I'm keeping hope alive

Juliet, how you been?
You look like death
Like you sure could use some rest
From this place

Human racing
And the faces of people who pound at your door
They'll always want more
They want more

Hummingbird, what's the word?
Are you still your mothers child
Or have you found yourself a flower?

Flower child, you're still wild
Under a harvest moon
Can we eat of all the fruits
Of our youth?

Tell the truth now
Your heart is a strange little orange to peel
What's the deal?
What's the deal?

Mary, dear, how you feel?
Are you lost without your lamb?
You know I think I understand

Little lamb, what's your plan?
Greener pastures in the sky?
It's a shame you want to die, know why

Just to find you've been blinded
To the greenest of pastures they're right here on Earth
For what it's worth
You're not the first to break my heart
You're not the first to break my heart
You're not the first to break my heart
You're not the first to break my heart, oh

Why did it take me so long to finally listen to St. Vincent's first album? This is amazing!

Theo Merino

Mark Bignell she actually began singing in a band on 2003

Mark Bignell

'Marry Me' is her first album, 'Actor' is her second. Two albums St. Vincent fans should strongly consider purchasing, if they haven't done so already. Maybe you meant it wasn't the first time she was in a recording studio. She was a member of the Polyphonic Spree and in Sufjan Stevens's touring band before starting her own career in 2006, releasing 'Marry Me' in 2007.

Theo Merino

This isn't her first album, it's her second one.
