I Think I Need A New Heart
The Magnetic Fields Lyrics


Time stands still
All I can feel is the time standing still
As you put down the keys
And say, "don't call me please"
While the radio plays

I think I need a new heart, oh oh
I think I need a new heart, oh oh

You've lied, too
But it's a sin that I
Can't tell the truth
'Cause it all comes out wrong
Unless I put it in a song
So the radio plays

I think I need a new heart
Just for you
I think I need a new heart

'Cause I always say, "I love you"
When I mean, "turn out the light"
And I say, "let's run away"
When I just mean, "stay the night"
But the words you want to hear
You will never hear from me
I'll never say "happy anniversary"
Never stay to say "happy anniversary"

So I think I need a new heart, oh oh
I think I need a new heart, oh oh
I think I need a new heart, oh oh
I think I need a new heart, oh oh

Give me time

I Think I Need A New Heart

The Magnetic Fields



Time stands still
All i can feel is the time standing still

As you put down the keys
And say don't call me please
While the radio plays

"i think i need a new heart" ohhh

"i think i need a new heart" ohhh

You've lied too
But it's a sin that i
Can't tell the truth
Cause it all comes out wrong
Unless i put it in a song
So the radio plays
"i think i need a new heart"
Just for you
"i think i need a new heart"

Cause i always say i love you

When i mean turn out the light
And i say let's run away
When i just mean stay the night
But the words you want to hear
You will never hear from me

I'll never say "happy anniversary"
Never stay to say "happy anniversary"

So i think i need a new heart ohhh
I think i need a new heart ohhh
I think i need a new heart ohhh
I think i need a new heart ohhh
Give me time

Thanks - just one correction:

You've lied too
But it's ASSUMED that i
Can't tell the truth
Cause it all comes out wrong
Unless i put it in a song

(Believe me, the number of times I've listened to 69 songs, I know them all like the back of my hand!)

'cause I always say "I love you"
When I mean "turn out the light"
And I say "let's run away" 
When I just mean "stay the night" 
But the words you want to hear 
You will never hear from me.
I'll never say "Happy anniversary." 
Never stay to say "Happy anniversary."

If I ever develop a heart disease, I will sing this often.

@fakeaorta I love They Might Be Giants! I sing them often. When my dad was alive he told me not to sing "I'm having a heart attack" around my grandfather since he had several (last one killed him)

So Nico. I have had 4 open heart surgeries. Two before I was even 18! Congenital condition. I have a plastic aortic valve and an implanted defibrillator. I absolutely LOVE this song. My heart disease helped me embrace it all the more. I often wonder if I love it because of my condition. There is also a super tiny song that is about 10 seconds long by They Might Be Giants called 'I'm Having a Heart attack' which is fun!
