We pinned the tail on Jonny Polanski
And asked mother may I, and she said I was it
And nothing mattered, nothing but the moment
Some days made perfect sense, some days never fit

But there was room in my heart for you
Room in my heart for you

We captured the flag in our own foreign countries
And took each other prisoner bit by bit
We take no prisoners now, in this sullen landscape
Just ask for forgiveness, and hang on to our wits

But there's room in my heart for you
Room in my heart for you

I am hard wired, fully detonated
You pull the pin and you can't put it back
It's a crash course, fully consummated
Cuz I was aimed from birth to break off from the pack

But there's room in my heart for you
Room in my heart for you

So here's what I keep, here's what I carry
The sweetest intentions, love in the remains
Here's what's strange, and what's extraordinary
Nothing changes, but nothing stays the same

And there's room in my heart for you
Room in my heart for you

So here's what I keep, here's what I carry
The sweetest of intentions, love in the remains
Here's what's strange, and what's extraordinary
Nothing ever changes, but nothing stays the same

Cuz I know your secrets, I have tasted their fruit
I have known the flash of her teeth in the dark
And you thought that I wouldn't notice, and you thought that I would not follow suit
Or the song in your soul or your heart......

    General CommentFrom Jonatha: "I wanted to get at a tender sentiment. A longing for the past but a look to the future. I wanted it to be lush, musically, that arrangement, the vocals. The approach. But also have that old school groove on the chorus. I think it does all that. And the coda, the outro takes it up a notch. It's like another song teasing you on. There's some mystery left there, and it's up to you to let it unfold on you. Marcus Miller made the song come together, his bass is the glue here."
