Black Heart
Stooshe Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I don't like it when you break me honey
Why'd you have to do that?
Tell me when you'll make these tears keep falling
Do you feel like a man?

Figure, figure there's no working you out whatsoever
Only one way I can sum you up altogether
You got a black heart

Daddy I've fallen for a monster
Somehow he's scaring me to death
He's big and bad
I love him like mad
Momma, he's the best I ever had
Daddy I've fallen for a monster
He got a black heart

No walls to build around me honey
'Cause you blew my house down
Sticks and stones won't put it back up for me
And that's where we're at now

Sicker, sicker, I ain't feeling your mouth whatsoever
Naming hurts me more than weight thrown around but whatever
You got a black heart

Daddy I've fallen for a monster
Somehow he's scaring me to death
He's big and bad
I love him like mad
Momma, he's the best I ever had
Daddy I've fallen for a monster
He got a black heart

Daddy I've fallen for a monster
Somehow he's scaring me to death
He's big and bad
I love him like mad
Momma, he's the best I ever had
Daddy I've fallen for a monster
He got a black heart

He got a black heart
He got such a dirty black heart in him
I love him like mad




Oh, yes I do
He got a black heart

Wait till its 40 years old, I feel the same way about blondies heart of glass or Kate bush’s running up that Hill, as pink floyd said in their song ‘time’ from ‘Dark side of the moon’ ( coming up to the 45th anniversary of its release!)

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

The older you get the more profound those lyrics are.
