The Head and The Heart


I'm super obsessed with this band--The Head and the Heart.  And, I'm incredibly jealous of my friend Melissa who gets to see them opening for Dr. Dog later this month.  I found them on the NPR website.  It's funny though, I have yet to actually buy the song.  (Too lazy.... too cheap... both...)  So, I keep looking it up on youtube.  I tried to find it on Pandora but, the band is too unheard of!  Imagine that.  Go NPR!

I'm all for the power ballad.  The beginning of this song just made me think of hipster-wannabe-whatnot but then the chorus emerges in a fantastic blend of raw harmony.  Favorite moments?  When the drummer hits the drum with a maraca. (Which I just had to google the spelling of.  Who knew it'd be so simple?)  The way they sound like a train.  Also, how the lead guy's top is a v-necked cardigan and nothing else--that's just hilarious.  But, the thing I love most?  I'm a sucker for any song about stars and losing yourself in something...

Lost In My Mind
The Head and the Heart

Put your dreams away for now
I won’t see you for some time
I am lost in my mind
I get lost in my mind

Momma once told me
You’re already home where you feel love
I am lost in my mind
I get lost in my mind

Oh my brother
Your wisdom is all that I need
Oh my brother
Don’t you worry ‘bout me
Don’t you worry
Don’t you worry
Don’t worry about me

How’s that bricklayin’ coming
How’s your engine running
Is that bridge getting built
Are your hands getting filled

Won’t you tell me my brother
Cause there are stars up above
We can start moving forward

How’s that bricklayin’ coming
How’s your engine running
Is that bridge getting built
Are your hands getting filled

Won’t you tell me my brother
Cause there are stars up above
We can start moving forward

Lost in my mind
Lost in my mind
Oh I get Lost in my mind
Lost, I get lost, I get lost in my mind
Lost in my mind
Yes I get lost in my mind
Lost, I get lost, I get lost
Oh I get lost
Oh I get
