o my heart lyrics – mother mother

oh my heart, it’s a fish out of water
oh my heart, it’s a fish on the rocks
and it bakes in the bad sun

oh my heart, it’s a rock in the gutter
oh my heart, it’s a rock and great boulder and stuck in the gutter

and i throw my heart back to the ocean
but it don’t go far, it come back floating
and i watch it wash it up with the dead fish

but it ain’t quite dead, it just is like this

oh my heart, it’s a house in tornado,
oh my heart, it’s a house in the sky in the eye of tornado
oh my heart, it’s a roof in el nino
oh my heart, it’s a roof made of straw in the jaw of el nino

and i pour my heart a new foundation
but it don’t set hard, it just stays shaking
and i scratch my name, i scratch my name in
but it don’t set hard, it gets mixed back in

bam bam bam, bam bam bam, bam bam bam, bam…

oh my heart, it’s a fish out of water
oh my heart, it’s a rock in the gutter

oh my heart, it’s the black in a rainbow
oh my heart, it’s so d*mn so cold, so d*mn cold

and i throw my heart into the fire
‘cos i want to set my heart on fire
and i watch it try befriending embers
but the ice don’t melt in mid-december

oh my heart, it’s a fish out of water
oh my heart, it’s a fish on the rocks
and it bakes in the bad sun
