Sewn
The Feeling Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Give me the song and I'll sing it like I mean it
Give me the words and I'll say them like I mean it

Cos you got my heart in a headlock
You stopped the blood and made my head soft
And god knows
You got me sewn
Nah nah nah

Danny boy, don't be afraid, to shake that ass, and misbehave
Danny boy, I now you got time, but what are you waiting for,
Anyway the dust may just blow away, if you wait for a windy day

But you may find the chance has past you by;

I cant do the walk
I cant do the talk
I cant be your friend
Unless I pretend

So give me the song and I'll sing it like I mean it
So give me the words and I'll say them like I mean it

Cos you got my heart in a headlock
You stopped the blood and made my head soft
And god knows
You've got me sewn

Nah nah nah

Danny boy, don't be a fool
Take upon to break the rule
Danny boy your lookin' so low
You lookin' like the dead grown old
Anyway the blues just may wash away, if you wait for a rainy day
But you may find, the chance had past you by

I cant do the walk
I cant do the talk
I cant be your friend
Unless I pretend

So give me the song and I'll sing it like I mean it
Give me the words and I'll say them like I mean it

Cos you got my heart in a headlock
You stopped the blood and made my head soft
You've got my heart in a headlock
You stopped the blood and made my head soft
Made my head soft
Made my head soft
Made my head soft
Made my head soft




Yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh Yeah, yeah, yeah

Overall Meaning

The Feeling's song Sewn is a ballad about love and the struggles of being genuine in a relationship. The lyrics are about the fear of vulnerability and the need for honesty in a relationship. "Give me the song and I'll sing it like I mean it, give me the words and I'll say them like I mean it, cos you got my heart in a headlock" sings the singer, admitting that he is held captive by his lover.


The song has a rock and roll element to it, with a fast-paced drumbeat and a catchy guitar riff which gives it an upbeat tempo, contrasting with the lyrics' melancholy tone. Despite this, the chorus "Cos you got my heart in a headlock, you stopped the blood and made my head soft, and god knows, you've got me sewn" reinforces the theme of emotional imprisonment.


The second verse references the hesitation of the singer when it comes to being in a relationship. "I can't do the walk, I can't do the talk, I can't be your friend, unless I pretend" shows an awareness of the need for a connection to his lover but an inability to be his true self. This is juxtaposed against the more upbeat tone of the bridge, as Danny Boy is urged to "shake that ass and misbehave" and "take upon to break the rule."
