Matt Maeson - The Hearse Lyrics




I am the man we both couldn't stand
I can't wash off the dirt from my hands
What was it like to feel in love
What was it like to feel in love
I can't scrub off the black from my lungs
I can't wipe off the taste from my tongue
What was it like to feel in love
What was it like to feel in love
I can't scrub off the black from my lungs
I can't wipe off the taste from my tongue
What was it like to feel in love
What was it like to feel in love

I will never go backwards
I will never be free
I will never run faster
When you sink down to me
I will never go backwards
I will never be seen
In the wake of disaster
Will you sink down at me

I am the house that's built upon sand
I am the thought that you couldn't plan
What was it like to feel in love
What was it like to feel in love
I'm the escape to something that's worse
I am the shadow driving the hearse
What was it like to feel in love
What was it like to feel in love
I'm the escape to something that's worse
I am the shadow driving the hearse
What was it like to feel in love
What was it like to feel

I will never go backwards
I will never be free
I will never run faster
When you sink down to me
I will never go backwards
I will never be seen
In the wake of disaster
Will you sink down at me yeah
Will you sink down at me
Will you sink down at me yeah

I will never go backwards
I will never be free
I will never run faster
When you sink down to me
I will never go backwards
I will never be seen
In the wake of disaster
Will you sink down at me

I am the house that's built upon sand
I am the thought that you couldn't plan
What was it like to feel in love
What was it like to feel in love
I'm the escape to something that's worse
I am the shadow driving the hearse
What was it like to feel in love
What was it like to feel in love

  12. Michael Jones

    I’m trying to figure out the music videos in order. May someone help me?

  13. It’s Ya boi Chips Ahoy

    I like how in this music video it’s like he’s telling a story in his songs or something I dunno. I had heard my sister listening to it on my way home but then I asked “ who sings this song” and she said “ Matt Maeson” so I thought I would use the Shazam app and find out what song it was and now I am listening to it 24/7 and can’t stop now and I was reading a webtoon and it was a good comic that goes SUPER well “hint hint”

  14. Flabby Tabby Panda

    This whole ep and its related music videos are a masterpiece. Sometimes music videos can ruin a song for a particular audience but I think the execution of these videos and songs as a single coherent piece bring the music to life in an amazing way. Great job, 2018 will be your year in my mind

    I’m in love

  45. ◄Simple Edits►

  64. גל שמר

    I have a feeling that this song would be in FIFA 19

  65. carlos boidanidis

    can someone explain the meaning or whatever the message of the video is?
    i understand every other video but in this one it seems like the only message is that matt escaped the driver/shaddow, burnt his coffin and found out that he himself is the shaddow.
    i hope im not completely wrong lol :)

  66. Mathae Kihumba

    At this rate, i think im already in love

  67. Vickey Madeline

  85. Noopy Bear

    Captivating, im in awe of this man😚

  86. Brie B

    I feel like this video was about someone with a broken heart, that started spiraling down a dangerous path in life, but ultimately they realize that they are in control of there own actions and decided to take hold of their life again. Becoming stronger and escaping that dangerous path they were on.

    The long drive and being stuck in that coffin, then he breaks out, takes control of the car and burns the coffin.

    Make sense anyone?

    Anes Hodžić

    yep spot on
