The Districts – Rattling Of The Heart Lyrics

SHARE

I want it to rain in the morning
Stay in silence ‘til the afternoon
I’ve got two coins on my eyelids
And two more I could show to you

But it’s just me
That’s all I can give to you
Some people wait for forgiveness
Some people won’t come to terms with this

Half-told jokes interrupted by
The sounds of branches breaking
The wind rattles your heart around babe
Stretch your limbs and do your back bends

Student debt and a broken bike
You were out with them drinking city lights
I was on my bed alone sifting through
Trash to sell to make the rent

If you listen to the rattling of the heart now
It pumps the life into the veins, I know it’s true
Together we are, together we all bend out of shape

The kids keep dancing, they wear cute and irony
If I can get through the grit of all this
Maybe I can live gratefully
I lost two grandfathers in six months
They don’t leave my head much
A suicide, one with vital signs
I watch him try to wake up

If you listen to the rattling of the heart now
It pumps the life into the veins, I know it’s true
Together we are, together we all bend out of shape

Some find joy wielding proof of their sadness
Have you yet found a master?
Trading God for a commonly orbited axis
Technology works, therapy tries
To provide a distraction
Medication’s been tested, it might work the fastest
Sedated and tragic
Smiling blank faces in monochromatic
Baby, there will be no more violent dreams

If you listen to the rattling of the heart now
It pumps the life into the veins, I know it’s true
Together we are, together we all bend out of shape
