Jeffrey Lewis - You Don't Have To Be A Scientist To Do Experiments On Your Own Heart lyrics

You don't have to be a scientist
To do experiments
You don't have to be a scientist
To do experiments
You don't have to be a scientist
To do experiments
On your own heart

I had no place to put myself
But I had lots of time
I had no place to put myself
But I had lots of time
I had no place to put myself
But I had lots of time
So I threw out some past
And made room for more future

Now I'm standing in the seam
Between my memories and dreams
Balanced on the seam
Between my memories and dreams
Floating down the stream
Between my memories and dreams
And I see a better person
Waiting his turn to be me

And you don't have to be a scientist
To do experiments
You don't have to be a scientist
To do experiments
You don't have to be a scientist
To do experiments
On your own heart

Now I'm running down the runway
In between gigantic numbers
I'm running down the runway
In between gigantic numbers
I'm running down the runway
In between gigantic numbers
With my knapsack
And a zero for a halo

And my halo's got a hole in it
So it don't keep me dry
My halo's got a hole in it
So it don't keep me dry
My halo's got a hole in it
So it don't keep me dry
But it's ok 'cause
My brain is my heart's umbrella

You don't have to be a scientist
To do experiments
You don't have to be a scientist
To do experiments
You don't have to be a scientist
To do experiments
On your own heart

I had a girl I had to leave
But I saw her face upon my sleeve
I had a girl I had to leave
But I saw her face upon my sleeve
I had a girl I had to leave
But I saw her face upon my sleeve
It kept talking
So I put it in the laundry

And as it spun and spun
It tried to ask me what I'd done
And as it spun and spun
It tried to ask me what I'd done
And as it spun and spun
It tried to ask me what I'd done
But I was gone
On down the road out to the wind

'Cause you think patience is a virtue
And what you don't know can't hurt you
And that events can change and shape us
More than we can change ourselves
And that conscious attempt at growth is stupid
And I should just relax and be myself
And you even think it's arrogant to try

But you don't have to be a scientist
To do experiments
You don't have to be a scientist
To do experiments
You don't have to be a scientist
To do experiments
On your own heart
