The Lumineers—Hey Ho

Okay so i didn’t even know this was on a commercial until i went to youtube and found it there, my friend Anne turned me on to them, i love the whole album, so without a doubt in coming days i will post more from them.  

Anyway the song lyrics read like a page from my journal (a bit):

VERSE
I’VE BEEN TRYING TO DO IT RIGHT
I’VE BEEN LIVING A LONELY LIFE
I’VE BEEN SLEEPING HERE INSTEAD
I’VE BEEN SLEEPING IN MY BED,
I’VE BEEN SLEEPING IN MY BED

SO SHOW ME FAMILY
ALL THE BLOOD THAT I WILL BLEED
I DUNNO WHERE I BELONG
I DUNNO WHERE I WENT WRONG,
BUT I CAN WRITE A SONG

CHORUS
I BELONG WITH YOU, YOU BELONG WITH ME
YOU’RE MY SWEETHEART
I BELONG WITH YOU, YOU BELONG WITH ME
YOU’RE MY SWEET

VERSE
I DON’T THINK YOU’RE RIGHT FOR HIM
THINK OF WHAT IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN IF YOU
TOOK A BUS TO CHINATOWN
I’D BE STANDING ON CANAL, AND BOWERY
AND SHE’D BE STANDING NEXT TO ME

CHORUS
I BELONG WITH YOU, YOU BELONG WITH ME
YOU’RE MY SWEETHEART
I BELONG WITH YOU, YOU BELONG WITH ME
YOU’RE MY SWEETHEART

BRIDGE
AND LOVE, WE NEED IT NOW
LET’S HOPE FOR SOME
CAUSE OH, WE’RE BLEEDING OUT

CHORUS
I BELONG WITH YOU, YOU BELONG WITH ME
YOU’RE MY SWEETHEART
I BELONG WITH YOU, YOU BELONG WITH ME
YOU’RE MY SWEET

It’s an unfortunate tale; that is, to feel as if you belong with someone and they belong with you, to feel that who they are currently with is not right, but know that there isn’t much you can do.  So it makes me think of that one boy who has always been that one boy…
