Heart Beats Slow Lyrics

Well I heard you were (You were a lion)
About how brave you are
Well I heard you were (You were still trying)
Trying to get back to the start

And we won't let it into the kitchen
No we won't let it into the house
No we won't let it through the front door
'Cause its burning our pretty little heart

I'm gonna miss you
Gonna miss you girl
And all of the things we should have done

You say I move so fast
That you can hardly see
You say I move so fast
How could you be with me?

But my heart beats slow
But my heart beats slow
But my heart beats slow
But my heart beats slow

Well I wish you, wish you well
All the best
Well I wish you, I wish you well
All the best

But we won't let it into the kitchen
No we won't let it into the house
No we won't let it through the front door
'Cause it's burning a pretty little hole

You said I move so fast
That you can hardly see
You say I move so fast
How could you be with me

But my heart beats slow
But my heart beats slow
But my heart beats slow
But my heart beats slow
But my heart beats slow
But my heart beats slow
But my heart beats slow
But my heart beats slow

Heart Beats Slow Meanings

There are mistakes in the lyrics! It's "You were lying", not "You were a lion". It wouldn't make any sense, since the next line is "about how brave you are". "You were lying about how brave you are". "Cause it's burning a pretty little hole" doesn't make any sense either! It's "Cause it's burning her pretty little heart".

This is actually a sad song. It sounds like one of those relationships where your energies just don’t sync up. They both know it’s over: “I’m gonna miss you,” and “I wish you well,” but one just won’t allow the other to be powerful (the lion), perhaps because the strong, decisive, rather wild one wants to inject new thoughts and ideas into an otherwise rote and established routine. “No, we won’t let it into the house.” The wild one is trying to figure out how to make amends, “trying to get back to the start,” but it’s not happening. In the meantime, the other, perhaps more self-assured one has a direction and can’t be stopped, moving fast along life’s journey. I’ve been in relationships like this before, which is possibly why my eyes popped out of the socket when I saw the words (oh, well). But the one who knows what he’s doing is never going to let a lion into the kitchen. Not the second time, anyway.
