Well I don't feel better
When I'm ****ing around
And I don't write better
When I'm stuck in the ground
So don't teach me lessons
As I've already learned
Yeah the sun will be shining
And my children will burn

Oh the heart beats in its cage

I don't want what you want
I don't feel what you feel
See I'm stuck in a city
But I belong in a field

[Repeat x7]
And ya left

Now it's three in the morning and
You're eating alone

Oh the heart beats in its cage

All our friends they're laughing at us
All of those you love, you mistrust
Help me I'm just not quite myself
Look around there's no one else there
I went to the concert and I fought through the crowd
Guess I got too excited when I thought you were around

[Repeat x7]
Oh yes I left

I'm sorry you were thinking I would steal your fire.
Oh the heart beats in its cage
Yes the heart beats in its cage

And the heart beats in its cage
