My heart it sits inside me
It don't know we said good bye
You see it's having trouble feeling good
The way it did, the way it should
I know it knows that something's wrong
It hears me play these awful songs
Its having trouble feeling good
The way it did, the way it should

My heart it sits inside me
It don't realizes we said goodbye
It's having trouble feeling good
The way it did the way it should
I know it knows that something's wrong
It hears me play these wretched songs
Its having trouble feeling good
The way it did, the way it should

    General CommentWhile I like the slow part of the song very much, I think the fast one is quite trivial. But I think they have done it on purpose, as the "awful songs" in the lyrics refer to exactly this part.
    What a genious one should be to write boring melodies on purpose. And Lytle is of course!
    I am curious whether someone share the same idea, so let me know!

    General CommentYes, I agree, the contrast is definitely seen there. It seems like it fits with a sort of subtext of writer's block, which as a musician I can sort of feel the same way that when I am trying to do something musically interesting but I am lacking inspiration I end up doing something just really repetitive, with an attempt at energy, but a fast pace isn't indicative of creative energy really.

    On some days when I am less patient I do just skip to the parts that are built around the vocals.
