I am a heart that's hard to pin
You are an arrow sticking in
I pull you out and put you down
With all the others, scatter 'round (?)

You won't give up that easy though
You turn to roots, a tree grown
Your ivy walls can't keep me in
I am a heart that's hard to pin

I am a heart that's hard to pin
You dig a hole and I fall in
But I'm still beating underground
Down here you think I won't be found

I won't give up that easy though
My heart's the seed, a tree will grow
My bud will be a thicker skin
I am a heart that's hard to pin

Ohhh, you can't win
Mine is just a little hard
Hard to pin
No, you can't win
Mine is just a little hard

Hard to pin
I am a heart that's hard to pin
You are an arrow sticking in
To pin me down's the hardest part

I am a heart

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a strong-willed person who is stating that she, being a sweet, beating heart, that is full of life, will not be "pinned" down by anyone or anything. Although the "arrow", being the object that is supposed to affect her is jabbed in her heart, she won't be taken down by this.

    Lyric CorrectionI am a heart that's hard to pin
    You are an arrow sticking in
    I pull you out and put you down
    With all the others scattered 'round

    You won't give up that easy though
    You turn to roots, a tree and grow
    Your ivy walls can't keep me in
    I am a heart that's hard to pin

    I am a heart that's hard to pin
    You dig a hole and I fall in
    But I'm still beating underground
    Down here you think I won't be found

    I won't give up that easy though
    My heart's a seed, a tree will grow
    My bark will be a thicker skin
    I am a heart that's hard to pin

    Ohhh, you can't win
    Mine is just a little hard
    Hard to pin

    No, you can't win
    Mine is just a little hard
    Hard to pin

    I am a heart that's hard to pin
    You are an arrow sticking in
    To pin me down's the hardest part

    I am a heart
