"Bleeding Heart [EP Version]" as written by and Adam Green....
When I wake up in the morning I smell your smell
God knows that I'm not doing well
You're my clementine, my sweet sunshine
A sparkling diamond in your eye

Bleeding heart, my bleeding heart
Won't you cut out my bleeding heart
Over the mountains by the sea and the shore
I hope you come knocking at my door

Baby baby let's live in a shoe
And I'll tell you some things that I used to do
You're a broken book, a thievin' crook
You stole my heart with just one look

Bleeding heart, my bleeding heart
Won't you cut out my bleeding heart
Over the mountains by the sea and the shore
I hope you come knocking at my door

You take my stuff and you make me blue
You've got me so goddamned subdued
And every day I hope and pray
You'll stay with me while the skies are grey

Bleeding heart, my bleeding heart
Won't you cut out my bleeding heart
Over the mountains by the sea and the shore
I hope you come knocking at my door

    General CommentThis song is an outstanding example of a beautiful song with just 2 chords.
    I think it's about unrequited love respectively the deeply desire that one day she will have same feelings for 'him'.
    To me this song describes wonderfully the mood changes between depression and euphoria, because the melody sounds very happy and the lyrics are in fact
    very grueling.
    i.e. the first line "When I wake up in the morning I smell your smell" ... of course she's not here ... just the imagination of her smell.

    General CommentSometimes I wonder if Adam Green ever looks up his own lyrics on songmeanings and says, "hmm, thats an interesting observation about what i was thinking when i wrote this."

    His lyrics are some of the best juxtapositions i've ever seen. On top of his wonderfully random lyrics he also mixes often depressing or even nonsensical lyrics with overly poppy music, making for one confused listener...and one pleased soul.

    ENJOY!!
