lyrics

Jeremy Woodstock is the only man I know,
the only man I know without a heart.
They made a deep incision, and cut into his cage,
and ripped the screaming organ out.

Said the heart to the man, "I am not your enemy,
Let me fill you up, let me help you breathe!"

When the doctors sewed him up
Jeremy was vacant of feeling anything toward the heart.
And when they asked him what he wanted to do with his vessel,
He told them to put it in a jar.

Said the heart to the man, "I am not your enemy,
Let me fill you up, let me help you breathe!
Let me make your veins pulse, let me make your lungs rise,
Let me make your mind burst, put me back inside,
I will be your best friend, I won't let bad happen,
Please, please, please, please, please...Jeremy."

But Jeremy Woodstock wouldn't listen to the heart,
He couldn't bear to hear it's words again.
'Cuz every night in his dreams he would see his wife and daughters,
and feel it pounding in his chest.

Said the heart to the man, "I am not your enemy,
Let me fill you up, let me help you breathe!
Let me make your veins pulse, let me make your lungs rise,
Let me make your mind burst, put me back inside,
I will be your best friend, I won't let bad happen,
Please! Please!"

"I will make your veins pulse, I will make your lungs rise,
I will make your mind burst, put me back inside..."
"But Heart! Can't you see?! I trusted you!" cried Jeremy,
"And I will never trust in you again..."

Jeremy Woodstock is the only man I know,
the only man I know without a heart.

"I've never seen an unknown performer with more power as when I saw Ariana performing at a music convention – I couldn't stop talking about her. The last performer I felt this way about was Bruce Springsteen"
