Gotye – “Hearts A Mess”

 

Pick apart
The pieces of your heart
And let me peer inside
Let me in
Where only your thoughts have been
Let me occupy your mind
As you do mine

Your heart’s a mess
You won’t admit to it
It makes no sense
But I’m desperate to connect
You can’t live like this

You have lost
(Too much love)
To fear, doubt and distrust
(It’s not enough)
You just threw away the key
To your heart

You don’t get burned
(‘Cause nothing gets through)
It makes it easier
(Easier on you)
But that much more difficult for me
To make you see…

Love ain’t fair
So there you are
My love

Your heart’s a mess
You won’t admit to it
It makes no sense
But I’m desperate to connect
And you, you can’t live like this

Your heart’s a mess
You won’t admit to it
It makes no sense
But I’m desperate to connect
And you can’t live like this

Love ain’t safe
You won’t get hurt if you stay chaste
So you can wait
But I don’t wanna waste my love

This is probably my favorite Gotye song. It’s not easy for me to be open… not that I’ve had many opportunities to really open my heart to someone, but even in those rare chances I wasn’t able to. I feel like I’ve ruined many chances and there are a hundred things I would have done differently. Fear, doubt, and mistrust have definitely been factors. But maybe someday I can really be open to someone and maybe I can finally experience love.

  1. I like this song, too.
    It is hard for humans to expose their hearts to others. Especially if they’ve done that and someone treated it cruelly. 😦 I think if the person truly loves and cares about you, it makes it easier…the fear, doubt and distrust can start melting away.
    I’ve always worn my heart on my sleeve…been VERY open with my feelings…express my emotions easily. It’s caused me some pain…but, the people who truly love me and appreciate me, have been gentle with my heart.
