Imogen Heap - Earth Lyrics




Baby, behave, we'll make it work [x8]
Are you with me? [x3]

You're not golden
And I'm getting tired
Act like you own the place
When really you've only just arrived

I caught first glimmers
In hides and skins
Look who's all grown up
Black swanning about the solar winds

You're gonna lose it all
And find yourself on your knees
So, get a grip and you might
Flow, reverse the great, slow bleed

I've tried patience, but
You always want a war
This house won't tolerate any more
Stop this right away

Put that down and clean this mess up
End of conversation
Put your back in it and
Make it up to me now

The cold shoulder
Folded arms and looking up
You've never listened
And carry on careless, regardless

This is not a fire drill and
If we hold any hope
It's harmonic connection
And stereo symbiosis

These legoland empires
Choking out mine now
You're everywhere, everywhere
Multiplying around me, child

A strain on my heart
This rock can't tolerate any more
Stop this right away

Put that down and clean this mess up
End of conversation
Put your back in it and
Make it up to me now

Baby, behave, we'll make it work [x8]
(Baby, do you love me?)

Woah, oh, oh, oh
Woah, oh, oh, oh
Woah, oh, oh, oh (yeh)
Woah, oh, oh, oh [cont]

You're only what you give back [x5]
Back
Stop this right away

(Baby, behave, we'll make it work) [cont]
Put that down and clean this mess up
End of conversation
Put your back in it and
Make it up to me now

Stop this right away
Put that down and clean this mess up
End of conversation
Put your back in it and
Make it up to me now

Are you with me? [x3]

You're only what you give back [x5]
Back

(You're not golden
And I'm getting tired
Act like you own the place
When really you've only just arrived)

    10 years later, still a great song.

  4. Julia Kardos

    I had to teach my friends a little music lesson when they heard Ariana Grande singing her song and didn't know who Imogen Heap was 😁 Love this album!

  5. devakibismark

    I immediately went crazy hearing her... fell in love.

  6. Patricia Nichols

    Amazing!!!

  7. Ian Edmonds

    This needs to be taken by Anonymous and fed to every outlet possible as a global wake the fuck up call.
    Otherwise we're not going to have a very good next century.
    Luv and Peace.

  18. nyan cat66

    Ariana Grande loved this track so much

  19. lampim

    Pure musical genius. I really wish people would stop limiting themselves to "hide and seek", it's really far from her best work IMO. It's like everyone remembering Picasso for an interesting stain on his bib he made as a baby. ARG!

  20. Aaron Robertson

    Who’s here because Ariana loves this song?

  21. Amy Ihrig

    This kind of reminded me of those songs from the creepy movie “Coraline” Which is weird because they are basically nothing alike.

  22. Linda Storm

    Love this song sooooo much! Thank you!

  23. Jenna Lynn

    2017? :D <3

  24. TatzeGraham

    Man, I remember the first song I got to hear from her was Let Go, when Frou Frou was a thing. 14 years old and I just thought, wow this is soooo frkn good. Gotta say I don't listen to her often anymore, I don't even know why, but every time I tune in I think the same: This is awesome. So beautiful and unique.
    I don't get how so few people know her.

  25. Nympphic Sleeper

    *puts something in the recycling bin* for Imogen Heap

  26. Ian Edmonds

    It's just such a good song. Musically interesting and so pertinent.
    Luv and Peace.

  27. Saleem Malik

    Aslamo Alikum, peace and blessings of God be upon you. We are all brothers and sisters and children of one man Adam and one woman Eve. All people belong to God and God belongs to all of them. All people come from God and go back to God, so all are One. We are all in same boat and in same train which starts from God and ends at God. One of the God’s name is Ahsan-al-Khaliqeen which means whatever God created is extremely beautiful and excellent. So we are all beautiful and excellent. The beautiful girls and guys all around us in this world are nothing but our beloved sisters and brothers. Not only we humans are just one family but all the angels, all the devils, all the plants, all the animals, all the mountains, all the winds, all the oceans, all the insects, all the birds, earth, sun, moon, all the stars, all the planets, all the galaxies, all this universe and everything inside it is just one family created by God and there is nothing like God and none equals to God in anyway. He is All-Loving, All-Forgiving, All-Knowing, All-Merciful, All-Gracious, All-Wise and All-Powerful. So we have a very big family. May God forgive all of us and unite all of us in His love and mercy and in His obedience. If we will be thankful to God and obey Him, this world will become a paradise. And on Day of Judgment, God will give us even a bigger paradise so beautiful and lovely that we cannot imagine where all of us will live in joy and pleasure forever. Please never forget to say many thanks to God and praise Him all your days and nights and ask for His forgiveness all the time. God wants we love others like we love ourselves. Ameen. Jazak Allah. :)

    let's heal mother earth- peace, love, music and lots of $$$$$ to pay for her health & ours- while having a great time:))

  29. hailey lizz

    I'm singing this with the A cappella choir at school and I'm very excited we went through it the first day and it sounded so cool and I have a feeling it will be worth it

    Laundon Coleman

    did someone possibly record it and upload it here? if so i'd love to see it!

  30. Lucy Balcombe

    love her

  31. kaiya thomas

    Listened to her since a young age! Maybe 5,6,7? My mom would always play her songs in the car, and I'd always enhoy them and tell her to play them again. Now I'm 14 and look at me! Still love her, and my mom STILL plays her songs in the car :)

    Ronnie Taylor

    same here actually!

  32. Xander

    1:44 - 1:48 gold

  33. K Oneal

    sometimes the best music doesn't need to be exploited but just to remain pure and untouched. so iam not mad that she isn't big as ladygaga or miley shes still great either way.

    Yanis Tang

    K Oneal she's our own little secret. We're not sharing her in the mainstream media.

    TheJackinati275

    100% of good music is not on the radio.
    100% of radio music is trash.

    Clara J

    If you don't listen to Rock FM that is. There are good radio stations but you have to know where to find them.

  34. Andrea Morales

    I am dancing to this song at my school

  35. buddyltd

    Imogen Heap is the greatest visionary of modern music. She employs the old and the new with abandon, making her music so much deeper than the crap we get usually. Keep pioneering, Imogen!

  36. Bancescu Torel

    She's stuffed with the most refined music.

  37. Ben Coggy

    This is a song everybody needs to hear.

    buddyltd

    +Ben Coggy I will extend this. Imogen Heap is the artist everyone needs to hear.

    recon herlev

    It really fucking isn't

  38. Chanel No.2

    Uhmm for some reason this reminds me of when i was a Child and i used to put my head in a washingmachine.....??

    Stin W.

    Interesting...

  42. Orange A

    expomilano2015

  43. Kamaal Malak

    Love It!!!

  44. reimyun

    I'm loving the 6/8 & 3/4 time signature ;) Imogen Heap is just amazing.

    Brynn Jones

    I also love the crazy time, but I think it's 5/8, I think. Asymmetric and all that. It's beautiful. :)

    reimyun

    @Brynn Jones At the beginning and the other "baby behave, we'll make it work" sections, I hear 123-456 1- 2- 3- repeated (which would be one measure of 6/8 then another of 3/4), and it seems to be in 6/8 for the majority of the rest of the song. Not to get all music-theory-ish on you; that's just what my ears hear >.< But whatever it is, I agree that it is beautiful!! :)

    Ian Edmonds

    +seramyun39 Had a big argument with myself but to my ears It's in 6/8.
    Genius song and Words To Hear and Understand.
    Luv and Peace.

    Just lina

    Hate to say this but this is in elements of FOUR (123 223 323 423 and repeat)

  45. Misaki Sailor

    Reminds me of bjork soo much...

    Additon

    @Misaki Sailor Medulla?

  46. lilkittyarixo

    i luv imogen so muchhh

  47. monique msparks

    .it wo good i loved it since i was 1

    Kayla Harris

    omg sameeeeeeeeee

  48. Tournesoles

    This song is beautiful and it's also the most USUK thing I have ever heard, aha 

  49. Lief Sillion

    As a musician of 35 years standing I have to say it boggles my mind to think how someone can imagine all this happening in their head at once and then successfully record it so that others can share the experience. Imogen Heap is without a doubt one of the leading female music artists of our age!

    Ely Star

    She's so extremely talented.... Sadly she doesn't seem to have the talent that Nicki Minaj has or Miley Cyrus or Lady Gaga or whoever is a wreck these days that have too much attention ~.~

    SpiritIncarnation

    @Super Spoot Well that's because Imogen isn't a walking train wreck like the others and in our society we praise the train wreck more due to the love hate relationship the audience has with them, so much so that they are willing to ignore the lack of talent, also if it weren't for their stupid and controversial actions they would be pretty much nothing and everyone would see the lack of talent more clearly and their names would hardly be mentioned. Their idiotic tendencies are meant to compensate for their mediocre music and so far it is working. Imogen has too much respect for herself to sell out like that and thus will not receive near as much attention for that very reason.

    Francis Broka

    Have I to say that I totally agree ?   I'm literally sick of the ridiculous and disproportionate success of Adele, with her music of a big commonness and her voice finally a little bit vulgar, while at the same time, Immi has really too little audience. It's revolting!  Imogenius ...

    Ginsuma

    She was probably high. It's no secret the best musicians use drugs as a tool of creation. As a musician myself who use to get high I hear this and think "Yeah, whoever came up with this was high". You get wild ideas as a musician even after just a few beers. I know everyone is different but it worked for me. I even played on shrooms once in Amsterdam years ago and it was like I was years a better guitarist. It's just a shame many musicians choose heroin. That stuff must make you come up with top chart hits. Anyway whatever her drug of choice is it's not interfering with her life or music she's probably a stoner.

    Clara J

    No she's not! She is just really creative. You know, she'd confess if she did drugs. Which she doesn't. BTW she has a kid now. MIND = BLOWN, right?

  50. dirk diggler

    im so fuckin happy now

  51. devourerofwatermelon

    "look who's all grown up"

  63. Harneet bhogal

    Ariana Grande loves this song! x

  64. miken505

    Ariana who?

  65. wafflezburger

    I love this song so much. But I didn't find Imogen through Ariana - I found Ariana through Imogen.

  66. Riley Cambridge

    The First imogen heap song i heard was "Airplanes" which i saw by accident looking for For "Red Hot Chili Peppers - Aeroplane", From that Day on Her beautiful voice has inspired some of my greatest drawings this being one of them. :) I love you Fru Fru

  67. Gretta ht

    My amazing taste in music brought me to Imogen and she kept me here

  68. Jenelle Moore

    well hold on, i'm not a fan or Ariana or anythin, but you have to remember she is a Disney Ch star, and that means alot of her fanbase right now, are little kids/teens. so it might be a bit annoying that there's a lot who only know Imogen through that, but at least they are being exposed to fucking awesome music :)

  69. teribite

    i don't know why but i love this song so much XD

  70. elektell

    fuck yeah

  71. Red Inked Cat

    who is Ariana?

    i think she's got enough thanks for bringing me here.

    Shrek brought me here btw,

  72. potatum

    God you just explained my thoughts completely!!!

  73. Brad Purcell

    Who's Ariana Grande?

  74. Mads Leetzow

  84. gemmamaywilson

    Ariana did NOT bring me here :P

  85. tl_loren

    Why should it matter who brought who where?
    This eccentric artist is getting recognition, that is what matters. :)

  86. Angelica Fuller

    !!! I love you!!! I will, I love Jenna Marbles!!!

  87. GalaxyWaffles

    pipe the fuck down

  88. pippylunalove

    merlin actually made me find imogen and i stayed for her voice. i've been hearing her songs for ages but didn't know how it was.

  89. Colleen Conway

    Woah crazies. Are we not allowed to like BOTH Imogen and Ariana? We should be here for music not a war, contain yourselves.

  90. Waffnor

    And I can see you do nothing but rage, how amusing.

  91. jnh120797

    Same here only because of ariana

  92. Shahinde Mohamed

    ariana grande did bring me here :)

  93. Angelica Fuller

    haha! you used capital letters for full sentences! it's almost like you're yelling at me over comments on youtube! XD

  94. Angelica Fuller

    lol. its funny cuz u r here on fb, and she's on tv. meanwhile, ur pretending ur better than her. ha!

  95. Angelica Fuller

    And I'm pretty at least half the people of America would shun you for not knowing who she is. :)

  96. Angelica Fuller

    And I'm sorry if you have ever looked in a mirror. :)

  97. Angelica Fuller

    Wanna know what I'm sick of? You bad mouthing Ariana Grande. What makes YOU good enough to judge HER? You have no qualifications. She is amazing, and way more famous than Imogen Heap. She is a pro. Nice try:)
