Weezer - Heart Songs Lyrics




Gordon Lightfoot sang a song about a boat that sank in the lake at the break of the morn
and a cat named Stevens found a faith he could believe in and Joan Baez
never listened to too much jazz but hippie songs could be heard in our pad
Eddy rabbit sang about how much he loved a rainy night
Abba Devo Benatar were there the day John Lennon died
Mr Springsteen said he had a hungry heart
Grover Washington was happy on the day he topped the chart

These are the songs...
these are my heart songs
they never feel wrong

and when I wake for goodness sake...
these are the songs I keep singing

Quiet Riot got me started with the banging of my head
Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Slayer taught me how to shred
I gotta admit though, sometimes I would listen to the radio
Debby Gibson, tell me that you think we're all alone
Michael Jackson's in the mirror
Gotta have faith if I wanna see clear
Never gonna give you up, this new love a wishing well
It takes two to make a thing go right, if the fresh prince starts a fight
Don't you worry for too long 'cause you know...

These are the songs...
these are my heart songs
they never feel wrong

and when I wake for goodness sake...
these are the songs I keep singing

Back in 1991 I wasn't having any fun
'til my roommate said "come on" and put a brand new record on
Had a baby on it, he was naked on it
then I heard the chords that broke the chains I had up on me
got together with my bros at some rehearsal studios
then we played our first rock show and watched the fanbase start to grow
signed the day
made a record all our own
a song comes on the radio and now people go "This is the song"

These are my heart songs (these are my songs)
they never feel wrong (never feel wrong)
and when I wake for goodness sake
these are the songs I keep singing
(these are my heart songs)
these are the songs I keep singing
(they never feel wrong)
these are the songs I keep singing
(these are my heart songs)
these are the songs I keep singing
These are the songs I keep singing

  13. Olivia Morris

    Everyone says that the red album is a chaotic album but I think that's exactly what they had in mind, they wanted songs for every genre, when you think of the color red you think chaos and anger which this album was full of, I love the red album it's one of my favorites, every time I listen to it I get so nostalgic and each song means something to me.

  33. tee lovee

    O M G...this song is just.....Ah! I don't even have the words...just beautiful

    RiversWilson

    red album is a mixed bag. make believe and ratitude no doubt

    RicoLen1

    +BEYOND AWESOME FILMS I love Heart Songs, and I wouldn't touch The Greatest Man That Ever Live. It's awesome just how it is. All the different genres of music he goes through in that one song make it awesome.

    mjobermeyer09

    Make Believe was my least favorite album on the whole. However it has 2 of my favorite songs by them.

    Runner High

    You ever read a comment that gets worse as it goes on?

  35. MrMustacrackish

    Wreck of the Edmund fitzgerald and Cat Stevens. thats some classy references to start a song

  36. Seneca Norvell

    These r the songs I keep singing

  37. enjoythesilence169

    Can't help to get a little tear eyed when he referenced Nirvana's nevermind album because I too broke the chains I had upon me when I heard it

    Mike RL

    you know it

    J Anthony

    Still true two years later.

    Vector OH YEAH

    enjoythesilence169 is your name Alice? Asking for friend

  38. Ane Dijitak

    Slayer!

    FishTank Productions

    @Ane Dijitak And Iron Maiden. And Judas Priest.
    ~Giz

    kmsharley75

    Maiden!

  39. skateinpeace69

    a timeless classic of our generation, glad to have seen these guys live with my sister

  40. Don Rideout

    he said eminem inspired this one

  41. King Sheegadorah

    just realized that during the part that rivers imitates kurt, he's also double tracking his vocals, just like kurt did on nevermind. pretty cool.

    Carrie Dainty

    my favorite part!

    Kurt Martin

    oh my jesus I never noticed that!

  42. Hey8ers_gonna_hate Yammers

    Yeah baby on it and naked on it (plus the year 1991)=Nirvanas Nevermind album.

  43. Steve F

    to respond to Daniel K:  the song does reference Nirvana's break thru album Nevermind in the lyrics, with the description "had a baby on it"

  44. CZsWorld

    I've been listening to the Red Album since 2008, but this was the first time I noticed the riff from _The World Has Turned And Left Me Here_ in this song!

    Rockesb888

    the lead guitar at the end? it's slightly different

    hoonie

    that's totally part of the reason, aside from the lyrics, that i fell in love with this song

    SimMaster

    There is no exact riff from that song. It's just a very similar chord pattern and guitar tone. He never does the pull off.

  45. Edu Monteiro

    When I've started to make my songs, this band and this song was really important to me. Thanks Weezer!

  46. Marcelino Rodriguez

    Weezer=Life Right?

  47. Anthony Mayor

    wait, im pretty sure someone already posted that so don't kill me please

  48. Anthony Mayor

    nevermind nirvana

  49. Gavin Munson

    Is it just me or does this song sound like '40 Mark Strasse' by The Shins.

  50. mark k

  76. David Peters

    Holy fuck... <3

  77. Bobby Fetta

    chills...

  78. vctjkhme

    @soleysalome What makes Heart Songs such a great song is that it not only lyrically tells the story of being introduced to the Seattle style, but it musically describes the power chord rock breaking attempting and then finally breaking through to a new and comfortable Weezer style.

  79. Jonny

    I actually think this is one of Weezer's best songs.

  80. ZsaszJazz

    these are my heart songs

  81. feedbackloop

    This album made me give weezer's new stuff another chance.

  82. RicoLen1

    @StreamStationAlpha "but hearing it during this transitional point of my life has impacted me much more than it would have as a kid."

    If you were a kid 3 years ago, how are you NOT now? Were you 20 then?

  83. Poolboy

    I've listened to Weezer for years and I only recently heard this for the first time...I'd like to say that I wish I heard it earlier, but hearing it during this transitional point of my life has impacted me much more than it would have as a kid.

    I love this song, thanks Weezer.

  84. IAN Achord

    Love the Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Slayer reference... I was a head banger in high school... Great song !

  85. Sam Coogan

    @soleysalome also grass is green

  86. Megan Farny

    favorite weezer song!!! =]

  87. Alunaris

    @elementyourmom I did when I heard it the first few times. :p

  88. AlarkaPT

    That awkward moment when you realize Weezer just rick rolled you at 1:43.

  89. IntrxtingCP

    My 3 most favorite weezer albums in no particular order:

    Weezer (1994)
    Pinkerton
    Weezer (2008)

  90. David Finster

    the image to the right is fake. oh and this song kicks asssss.

  91. Logan McCauley

    is it bad i cried during the last chorus?

  92. blink182lives100

    @soleysalome huh?

  93. linniebrooke

    Favorite Weezer song. <3

  94. Hunter Shelburne

    I can't begrudge one of my favorite bands for changing styles up a bit at different points, I don't necessarily like it as much, but they enjoy doing it, and they earned it over the years. I am still going to reach for my holy trinity though, Blue/Pink(erton)/Green.

  95. Daniel K

    @realslimvulcan that's exactly what i mean. you can't hear it. i didn't say you don't understand the message.

  96. Daniel K

    @realslimvulcan you're just not hearing it. it's a little bit hidden i guess. slob is nothing like pinkerton. american gigolo? haha, you lost all credibility there.

  97. Daniel K

    @shinichi2030 ne!
