Noah And The Whale - Shape Of My Heart Lyrics




Oh when I look to the shape of my heart,
It's separated only by scars
That cut in and cut out
Oh and leave me without
Oh a heart that functions at all.

And when I look to the shape of the sky,
I give thanks for this hollow chest of mine;
That I no longer feel
The great weight of ordeals
That can make this life so unkind

Oh and if there's any love in me,
Don't let it show.
Oh and if there's any love in me,
Don't let it grow.

Oh when the wild was all covered by snow,
I forgot the colours that the grass tend to grow.
Oh the trees were all leafless,
And lifeless and black,
And I wondered if the leaves could grow back

For your heart is like a flower as it grows,
And its the rain, not just the sun that helps it bloom,
And you don't know how it feels to be alive,
Until you know how it feels to die

Oh and if there's any love in me,
Don't let it show.
Oh and if there's any love in me,
Don't let it grow.

Oh and if there's any love in me,
Don't let it show.
oh and if there's any love in me,
Don't let it grow.

Oh and if there's any love in me,
Don't let it show.
oh and if there's any love in me,
Don't let it grow

  13. kellan

    i love you

  14. Mika Carbonneau

    jaime soooh

  15. HotelUnderSeige

    what ever happened to the ukulele?!

  16. buba tunda

    the old video was better

  17. Ruben Partida

    R.I.P. Noah and the Whale... we miss you already :(

    Austin Nicholson

    Welp that sucks....

    Zeke Braddock

    +Ruben Partida Wait what happened to them?

    Christopher Piechowiak

    +Zeke Braddock They split up.

  18. Denham Preen

    This feels very Moonrise Kingdom

    Luciana Fernández

    I was thinking in "Life Acuatic..." but it's the same. It is written "Wes Anderson" throughout the video :)

  19. Dawson Weston

    i was looking at my face book status and the song give a little love showed up and I love the song

  20. TheNudePlatypuS

    i got this song originally on a starbucks, free itunes download of the week card back in 2008. best song i ever got for free. still love it to this very day!!

  21. Smudgefur

    Ever since my mum first played me this song, I have always loved it

  22. chrstfnn

    Wes Anderson style :)

  23. Vivian Le

    I JUST LOVE THIS SONG SOOOO MUCH!

  24. Fiordaliso

    This song describes me so much!

  25. NewColumbia10

    This video is like a poorly made Wes Anderson movie.

  26. Kev'n Clark

    sooooo much dopamine!! :D

  27. The Onion Prince

    I agree whole heartedly, Darjeeling Limited is often overlooked and yes the Hotel Chevalier short that begins it is just simply perfect

  28. J. Hancock

    this song...... I have no words that would do it justice so a smiley face will have to do :)

  29. pixithemis

    You should watch his short ''Hotel Chevalier'' then. Sort of a prequel to Darjeeling Limited. Needless to say it's brilliant.

  30. Sebastian Nakano

    Darjeeling Limited is my personal favorite

  31. Jjmmr1

    Am I the only one that watches this cause of the video? ..

  32. pixithemis

    Moonrise Kingdom is the least Wes Anderson movie of all the Wes Anderson movies. Try Rushmore or The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.

  33. Francesca Marcolini

    To many "the one" in my response... Sorry...

  34. Francesca Marcolini

    You're right! But the one that's the one that reminded me the most. So do you think the reference was on purpose?

  35. Gregor Morrison

    Ha! Wes Anderson has done other films...

    Bottle Rocket came out in '94, so it's not as if Moonrise was a first or something.

  36. thatshowitallstarted

    -geppetto and the whales?

  37. anka

    could somebody suggest me other (great :P) bands like noah and the whale? :)

    akvar02

    Okkervile River
    The Decemberists
    Death Cab For Cutie

    Emma Risby

    Passanger!!
    Or, Neutral milk hotel!!~ : o

  38. Francesca Marcolini

    This video is soooo Wes Anderson!
    It's just like Moonrise Kingdom 4 years before!

  39. OrangesOwn1

    Don't worry, i won't lose too much sleep over it! :)

  40. Gvantsa (Lili) ^^

    Alright. I just told a person where he could download it. Like I said most of my songs are downloaded and paid for. Some are the free ones artists give out. & Yes i have some covers that i downloaded of youtube. So I am not the person you need to worry about))

  41. OrangesOwn1

    "...doesn't cause them any financial damage"
    Again, how do you know this? Just a couple of months ago NATW had some of their instruments stolen from a gig and had to rely on people lending their instruments for free. Without the piracy they may have been able to buy more instruments. This also meant that they had to cancel gigs which lost them more money.

    "That is robbey and this is just listening to music."
    Piracy IS robbery essentially because it's stealing things.

    Sorry for the essay answer

  42. OrangesOwn1

    "These people have tons of money"
    Do they? Maybe the bigger artists in the charts at the moment do, but I think the smaller bands like NATW are on average wages.

    "...just a couple people dowloading a song for free..."
    How do you know it's a couple of people? Sadly, there are now more people illegally downloading songs than paying for them. (1/2)

  43. Gvantsa (Lili) ^^

    No. But look at it this way. These people have tons of money. So just a couple people downloading a song for free when they cant afford to buy it doesnt cause them any financial damage :)) & Your argument has nothing to do with this. That is robbery and this is just listening to music.People need to chill. So get please get your panties out of a wad:)

  44. Photobyke

    I know. Sting's song is fantastic. It's a shame this one doesn't come anywhere near close :-)

  45. Cardboard Box

    Where is it? I must go there some day :)

  46. killer mitchu

    am i the only one that kind of remembers wes anderson's movies with their clips

  47. Kostadin Kolev

    so hip

  48. Jeff Wijers

    So many songs called Shape of my heart, and just 1 good one.....

  49. giolina111

    this song makes me so happy! ^.^

  50. giolina111

    Yeah you're right! they could fit in any Wes Anderson's movie! Maybe they should do a soundtrack for him some time...

  51. Kobalt Rad

    these guys look like they're good friends with Wes Anderson

  52. fishersofmenvideo

    brilliant! interplanetary irony at its most inscrutable! dog bless 'em...

  53. OrangesOwn1

    Really? So if I want a new iPad, xbox, and HD tv but I cant afford them does that mean I have a right to just take all of those things? ;)

  54. Gvantsa (Lili) ^^

    I already did just so you know :) But i just answered a question. and if someone cant afford it they have a right to listen to good music

  55. OrangesOwn1

    Or you could actually support the artist by buying it with money!

  56. Gvantsa (Lili) ^^

    Do the video to mp3 converter. Quality isnt amazing but ist alright. Just google it and youll find tons of sites. all you need is the link

  57. Mimi Hodson
