Appearances

Overview

Several partial variations on the chorus for "Heart of Hearts" appear on Alone XII. One version under the "Heart of Hearts" title ("heart of hearts 3 @159.mp3"), however, shares a melody with the demo "Happy Anniversary". Another iteration ("hearts_7_king.mp3"), features as its verse melody the chorus melody eventually used in the Black Album track "Byzantine".

Lyrics

Heart of Hearts (ver. 8)

I always thought I could be a writer
But I only wrote two lines
Poor Brian Wilson
Under his towels
Hugging a dead flashlight

In my heart of hearts
I know that it's not true
But it still hurts me anyway
The starving leopard is too weak to make his kill
So hold me as I pass away

Maybe I should go on a safari
Bust out the folding chairs
We're getting to the crux of the matter
But you just don't seem to care

In my heart of hearts
I know that its not true
But it still hurts me anyway
The starving leopard is too weak to make his kill
So hold me as I pass away

If You Only Knew

If only you knew how messed up I really am
You wouldn't say those words to me

Nothing Like It

There's nothing like the feeling I get when I'm with you
I wanna feel it every day

The Best Moment of My Life

The best moment of my life was when I met you
I didn't know it at the time

You're Gonna Be a Star (Someday)

Even though that cop has got his gun in your face
You're gonna be a star someday
