"Sarah" as written by and Natasha Khan....
Adopting Sarah's heart
(Was never gonna be easy)
With an angel tattoo sinking beneath her belt
(Sarah)

And the dirty blonde sea-water
(Sea-water gushing down)
Chewing fingernails in her shit-eating grin
(Sarah)

They cut out her heart when
(She was a little girl)
And in the fishing boat she thought
She saw the shadow of God
(Sarah)

He didn't smile at her and she decided
(He never came at all)
And when she died
She was going nowhere, nowhere, nowhere

Sarah, I want to be like you
(Sarah)
You know sometimes I want to live like you
(Sarah)
So I know how it feels not to feel
(Sarah)

Adopting Sarah's heart
(Was never gonna be easy)
Changing from black to blonde
To black to blonde
(Sarah)

But on the dirty tarmac of
(The tarmac of a melting motorway)
Gave me her clothes and told me
To take her place, her place

Sarah, I want to be like you
(Sarah)
You know sometimes I want to live like you
(Sarah)
So I know how it feels not to feel
(Sarah)

Sarah, I want to be like you
(Sarah)
You know sometimes I want to live like you
(Sarah)
So I know how it feels not to feel
(Sarah)

    General Commentprobably just a coincidence but this makes me think of 'the heart is deceitful above all things' - it has a sarah, the actress playing her has an angel tattoo on her belly, she dyes her hair from blonde to black and takes off her clothes and goes running around a road at some point. a large chunk of the novel/film is the way in which her young son (who was -adopted- by another couple but is taken back by her) looks up to sarah - even pretending to be her at some points.

    General Commentat first i thought it's about some girl who became indifferent [They cut out her heart], stopped believing in God [she decided
    He never came at all] and the latter decision sort of took the prespective of afterlife away from her.

    but i don't understand why does Natasha want to be like her.. how can she adopt Sarah's heart if it's not there?
    maybe cutting it out isn't a symbol here - stupid idea but maybe Natasha is to take care of it in some way.. or has had it transplanted.. erm :]

    'She gave me her clothes and told me take her place'
    not only does the narrator want to be like Sarah but Sarah herself orders her to - maybe because she knows she's going away (dying?).

    and the latest idea - maybe Sarah herself i just a symbol of some attitude. picking it up seems cool for Natasha so she creates a real person whose life would sort of explain that attitude.

    hm, still, confusing.

    General Comment"Adopting Sarah's heart
    Was never gonna be easy"

    "But on the dirty tarmac of...
    The tarmac of the melting motorway"

    I think this is a really great song, quite strange though.

    General CommentI thought it was abducting Sarah's heart. Could be wrong though.
