Heart​-​Shaped Man

from by Michael Wainwright



Heart-Shaped Man
written by Roland Orzabal


he is a heart-shaped man
he's got his head in the sand
he's got his fingers in his ears
to wipe away the tears
he is a heart-shaped man

he's got a heart-shaped head
sleeps in a heart-shaped bed
he is the color of a rose
and everybody knows
he is a heart-shaped man

picture yourself on a boat with nobody else
the water's leaking in
no bucket or a tin to help you bail it out
fight for yourself
you've got to fight for yourself
tell me how you feel, come on and make it real
it's what it's all about

trapped like a bird in a gilded cage
life is the debt that you can't repay
you've seen the signs but do you know the way?
the way to love.


Do you feel my love?
