Heart In a Cage
The Strokes Lyrics


Well, I don't feel better when I'm fucking around
And I don't write better when I'm stuck in the ground
So don't teach me a lesson 'cause I've already learned
Yeah, the sun will be shining and my children will burn

Oh, the heart beats in its cage

I don't want what you want, I don't feel what you feel
See, I'm stuck in a city but I belong in a field
Yeah, we got left, left, left, left, left, left, left
Now it's three in the morning and you're eating alone

Oh, the heart beats in its cage

All our friends, they're laughing at us
All of those you loved, you mistrust
Help me, I'm just not quite myself
Look around, there's no one else left

I went to the concert and I fought through the crowd
Guess I got too excited when I thought you were around
Oh, he gets left, left, left, left, left, left, left
And I'm sorry you were thinking I would steal your fire

Oh, the heart beats in its cage
Yes, the heart beats in its cage

And the heart beats in its cage

Heart in a CageThe Strokes

Well, I don't feel better when I'm f*cking around
And I don't write better when I'm stuck in the ground
So don't teach me a lesson 'cause I've already learned
Yeah, the sun will be shining and my children will burn

Oh, the heart beats in its cage

I don't want what you want, I don't feel what you feel
See, I'm stuck in a city but I belong in a field
Yeah, we got left, left, left, left, left, left, left
Now it's three in the morning and you're eating alone

Oh, the heart beats in its cage

All our friends, they're laughing at us
All of those you loved, you mistrust
Help me, I'm just not quite myself
Look around, there's no one else left

I went to the concert and I fought through the crowd
Guess I got too excited when I thought you were around
Oh, he gets left, left, left, left, left, left, left
And I'm sorry you were thinking I would steal your fire

Oh, the heart beats in its cage
Yes, the heart beats in its cage

And the heart beats in its cage

how on earth this song is not more popular is beyond me. the riff is fantastic and the lyrics are gut-wrenching. you can sense the abandonment and you just wanna hug julian and say everything's gonna be alright, mate.

@TVnorminStudio Ize of the World is pretty awesome imo

Electricityscape, Red Light, Razorblade, and Juicebox were all really good in my opinion. You Only Live once is also a classic. The rest of the album was boring though.
