People Need A Melody
The Head and the Heart Lyrics


Pick yourself up kid
I can't bear the weight
Pick your mood upfront
We don't have the time
When you find someone
You don't run away
Pick yourself up kid

All those wicks in your head
Is that all this really was?
Just a role you played
That you could hide behind
Is it what you want
To bury yourself away
Before your time goes?

I don't want a love that holds us back
I don't want a life that I can't have

'Cause people need a melody to open their eyes
Like a key to a memory frozen in time
Holding onto everything, you're stuck in the past
Boy, when you gonna learn the world moves fast?

So pick yourself up kid
I can't bear the weight
Let the light back in
'Cause you've been walkin' blind
Now it's all on you
Don't you let it fade
Before your time goes

I don't want a love that holds us back
I don't want a life that I can't have

'Cause people need a melody to open their eyes
Like a key to a memory frozen in time
Holding onto everything, you're stuck in the past
Boy, when you gonna learn the world moves fast?
The world moves

It's been a little while since we've
Been together, it's
Been a long time since we were
Young and wild, remember?
We were friends, remember?
And we were lovers, it's
Not too late, it was
Never too late

People need a melody to open their eyes
To a memory frozen in time
Holding onto everything, you're stuck in the past
Boy, when you gonna learn the world moves fast?

People need a melody to open their eyes
To a memory frozen in time

I don't want a love that holds us back
I don't want a life that I can't have
I don't want a love that holds us back

Pick yourself up, kid
I can't bare the weight
Pick your mood up, friend
We don't have the time
When you find someone
We don't run away
Pick yourself up, kid


All those books in your head
Is that all this really was?
Just a role you play
That you could hide behind
Is it what you want?
To bury yourself away
Before your time goes


I don't want a love that holds us back
I don't want a life that I can't have


'Cause people need a melody to open their eyes
Like a key to a memory frozen in time
Holding onto everything, you're stuck in the past
Boy, when you gonna learn the world moves fast?


So pick yourself up, kid
I can't bare the weight
Let the light back in
'Cause you've been walking blind
Now it's all on you
Don't you let it fade
Before your time goes


I don't want a love that holds us back
I don't want a life that I can't have


'Cause people need a melody to open their eyes
Like a key to a memory frozen in time
Holding onto everything, you're stuck in the past
Boy, when you gonna learn the world moves fast?
The world moves


It's been a little while since we've been together
It's been a long time since we were young and wild, remember?
When we were friends, remember?
When we were lovers
It's not too late, it was never too late


People need a melody to open their eyes
To a memory frozen in time
Holding onto everything, you're stuck in the past
Boy, when you gonna learn the world moves fast?
People need a melody to open their eyes
To a memory frozen in time


I don't want a love that holds us back
I don't want a life that I can't have
I don't want a love that holds us back

Thank you for reminding me to live the life with melody!

This is actualy the first time i listen to a song that makes me remember my friend and the time when i was young (and wild probably), which then brings me instantly to the memory i made when i was younger.

i am not old relatively, but the pressure and time-demand from work makes me think it's not the time

but yeah, it's never too late.

Thanks for The melody!

Imagine blasting this while driving home just as the sun sets, screaming the chorus and feeling nostalgic for memories you don't even have.

Thank for the lyrics

I don't know if you copied and pasted or whether you transcribed these lyrics ... I only want to point out that the form of "bear" here is bear ... Bear the weight of the world, Grin and bear it, etc. I am not trying to nitpick or come off as a know it all, I just wanted to let you know because there really are people on the internet who will nitpick and judge on the most insignificant thing. It isn't a big deal to me personally, I just wanted to let you know in case that kind of thing matters to you. Thank you for adding the lyrics. I always like to read along as they sing ! Namaste

I have all sorts of feeling listening to this song! Happy. Sad. Uplifted. Emotional. I want to cry for no reason other than it's very sentimental. Amazing song!

Thanks for sharing with us.
