"Electric Heart" as written by and Devendra Banhart....
The electric heart
Shines for you
It's giving off sparks
But that's nothing new

The electric heart
Spins it's lightning web
The spider's sparkle
Lights the way ahead

I eat the biscuts
A gift from her
I eat the fishes
They got no fur

The open road
Of God's final town
I'll take a little sip
From its honey drip

The earth-hurt skies
Say your name
The earth was dry
Until you came

A little baby begins to grow
A happy belly begins to glow
The electric sky
Combing in the snow

He's always high
He's a gentle soul
My winter friends
With Christmas legs

And cold, cold beards
And frozen heads
We keep them shiny
We keep them shown

'Cause though they're tiny
They're valuable
Now I've lost my nails
But that's nothing new

And goddamn thumbs
Thumbs, goddamn you
And if all else fails
To win the race

Then someone else for sure
Will take my place
Now flung from dreams
Your voice reappears

And it almost seems
Like you're almost here
Singing an ancient chant
That spreads its dusty legs

And I'm coming in
In my head
Electric heart
Shine for us

Shiny love
Shiny love
Shiny love
Shiny love

Shiny love
Shiny love
Shiny love

    General CommentIt seems every time I listen to this song I turn it up louder and louder, aside from the fact that it’s brilliant this song just blows my mind. I will never hear any music like his, like I said it’s what I hear.
    >< too bad I cant elaborate when talking about Devendra.

    General Commenti absolutely love devendra and love his lyrics. they are so non-sensical and there is achild-like quality that I cherish about them.

    i was wondering if anyone thought the lines
    "the earth was dry
    until you came"
    could be sexual because the next lines is talking about having a baby. or is that just obscure?
