The Head And The Heart – People Need A Melody Lyrics

[Intro]
Pick yourself up, kid
Pick yourself up, kid

[Verse 1]
Pick yourself up, kid
I can't bare the weight
Pick your mood up, friend
We don't have the time
When you find someone
We don't run away
Pick yourself up, kid

[Verse 2]
All those books in your head
Is that all this really was?
Just a role you play
That you could hide behind
Is it what you want?
To bury yourself away
Before your time goes

[Pre-Chorus]
I don't want a love that holds us back
I don't want a life that I can't have

[Chorus]
'Cause people need a melody to open their eyes
Like a key to a memory frozen in time
Holding onto everything, you're stuck in the past
Boy, when you gonna learn the world moves fast?

[Verse 3]
So pick yourself up, kid
I can't bare the weight
Let the light back in
'Cause you've been walking blind
Now it's all on you
Don't you let it fade
Before your time goes

[Pre-Chorus]
I don't want a love that holds us back
I don't want a life that I can't have

[Chorus]
'Cause people need a melody to open their eyes
Like a key to a memory frozen in time
Holding onto everything, you're stuck in the past
Boy, when you gonna learn the world moves fast?
The world moves

[Bridge]
It's been a little while since we've been together
It's been a long time since we were young and wild, remember?
When we were friends, remember?
When we were lovers
It's not too late, it was never too late

[Chorus]
People need a melody to open their eyes
To a memory frozen in time
Holding onto everything, you're stuck in the past
Boy, when you gonna learn the world moves fast?
People need a melody to open their eyes
To a memory frozen in time

[Outro]
I don't want a love that holds us back
I don't want a life that I can't have
I don't want a love that holds us back
