I don't care or mind we're ordinary

I don’t care where you’re from
I don’t care about your song
I don’t care you say you’re leaving
I don’t care for your take on right and wrong

It’s all the same to me

I don’t dare to fix you
I don’t dare to try your fix
I don’t dare to challenge your beliefs
I don’t dare to be other than your own minx

It’s all the ho same hum to me

I don’t mind your scarred heart
I don’t mind you take me for nought
I don’t mind you fail to see me as I am
I don’t mind being dismissed without a thought

It’s all the ho same hum ordinary to me

You don’t care we’re so ordinary
You don’t care we cannot break this hold
You don’t care graffiti paint is not yet dry
You don’t care every story has already been told

It’s all the same to you

You don’t dare to face addiction
You don’t dare to suck the marrow of life
You don’t dare to find something unsoured
You don’t dare believe in more than torment and strife

It’s all the ho same hum to you

You don’t mind it’s overrated
You don’t mind that life is compromise
You don’t mind that we’re naked and ugly
You don’t mind nothing lasts and everything dies

It’s all the ho same hum ordinary to you

And so we both lie and cry
Defenseless
Senseless
Less
When we could be so much more

I don't care or mind we're ordinary

Artist's Description

You Am I Heavy Heart
Been watching so much TV
I’m thinner than I should be
I’m like a waterlogged ball
That no-one wants to kick around anymore
An all day morning hair-do
That no comb can get through
It’s all granola and beer
A calling card and a silk cut souvenir

I miss you like sleep
And there’s nothing romantic
about the hours I keep
The morning when it starts
I don’t look so good
Now I got a heavy heart

I talk a lot about football
And girls I kissed in Grade 4
I piss off my friends
And digging a hole just staring at the floor
Now every t-shirt’s got a wine stain
I’m loving cigarettes again
I know every tune about guys and girls
and hurts and hearts and moans

I miss you like sleep
And there’s nothing romantic
about the hours I keep
The morning when it starts
I don’t look so sharp
Now I got a heavy heart

It’s just a low rent paying,
palpitating pulp under my shirt
But there’s a weight that’s sitting
Oh God it hurts
Oh God it hurts

Been watching so much TV
I’m thinner than I should be
I’m like a waterlogged ball
That no-one wants to kick around anymore

I miss you like sleep
And there’s nothing romantic
about the hours I keep
The morning when it starts
Oh my heavy heart
