My heart will never feel (be)
Will never see
Will never know
Oh, heart
And then it falls
And then I fall
And then I know [x4]

My, My, My
Ever see, ever be, ever know
My heart
Ever see, ever be, ever know
My heart

Home and I know
Playing the deck above
It's always different
I'm the one in love [x4]

My heart will never feel (be)
Will never see
Will never know
Oh, heart
And then it falls
And then I fall
And then I know [x2]

Ever see, ever be, ever know
My heart
Ever see, ever be, ever know

Home and I know
Playing the deck above
It's always different
I'm the one in love [x2]

My heart will never feel
Will never see
Will never know

Home and I know
Playing the deck above
It's always different
I am the one in love

Home and I know
Playing the deck above
It's always different (now)
I'm the one in love [x2]

    General CommentVery simple song. She's just saying she always feels so close to love, but she never is, she never sees it for sure and she never knows for sure. This makes her fall (depression, rejection, isolation, etc) and then she knows she's meant to be alone. She is in love with life itself, but she can't seem to express this love and it drives her crazy, so she just stays in her own head. "And then I know". It's ominous/sad. At the same time, the way it's sung, it's as if she's comfortable with it, like a realization. "It's always different" -- no matter how much she rationalizes, she can never deal with it.

    General CommentI think she is searching for someone to love she asks tarot and her answer is "love yourself."

    Lyric CorrectionAlso, I think it's "my heart, I'll never be, I'll never see, I'll never know" and "Home and I know [maybe], playing the vagabond, it's always different, I'm the one who falls" and then the second time "I'm the one who loves". you can figure this out pretty clearly in the live performances of the song.

    Lyric CorrectionMy heart will never feel
    Will never see
    Will never know

    Oh, heart
    And then it falls
    And then I fall
    And then I know

    My heart will never be
    I never see
    I never know

    Holding ohn-on
    /home and I know
    I am a vagabond
    It’s always different
    I am the one that falls
    /I am the one that loves

    Lyric CorrectionI can't tell what she's singing very well, especially at the "Playing the vagabond" line. I don't see her mouth moving that way... I feel like she's singing "Playing the deck above."

    in this live you can clyearly see that the last chorus doesn't say "i'm a vagabond" but something more like "paying a deck above" that I know doesn't make any sense but she clearly says those letters!!

    General CommentYou guys seriously need to pay some more attention to what enters your mind! First the song is called genesis which is a direct theme of the bible,and she is calling attention to the beginning according to the bible.Second please look at the iconography being used in the video,such as the snake,and the flaming sword,the dust we are made from.....this song is her comment to God on the fall of Adam and Eve and therefore mankind in general.Most of the imagery u see is taken directly from the bible and its story of the fall of mankind.My direct interpretation is that she is mocking God by lamenting that her heart will never get to know paradise,and that she was born as a fallen[sinning] human.without a home and that she thinks she is the one who truly loves ,not God.This shtick is massively satanic imo and either her or her handlers know it.Read genesis for yourselves and you decide. Killjoy out-Godbless

    Lyric CorrectionIf you listen closely, the words change a little bit each time she repeats a...verse, I guess you'd call it? For instance "will never see, will never know" sometimes turns out to be "you'll never see, you'll never know".

    I know it's debatable since it's hard to tell with the way the sound is manipulated in the song, but I'm pretty sure I'm hearing it right. Also, "holding on" sounds like "home in my.." and I can't figure out the rest.
