My Heart Is Split

This song is by Kerrigan-Lowdermilk, features Laura Osnes and Meghann Fahy and appears on the album Our First Mistake (2011).

It happens every now and then
I hear the words I need to hear
Coming from the tiny speakers
That I've shoved into my ears

The crickets setting the tempo
The wind dancing across my skin
Reminding me of conversations
Summer nights when I stayed in

Back home, before I moved
Back home, before I got here
Back home with the people who loved me my eighteen years

My heart is split
Between home and here
I'm cut in half
Two beds, two lives, and I live in between
My porch back at home and this strange new world I knit
My heart is split

As sudden as the onset of winter
As nat'ral as the trail mix they all eat
This untamed and icy place I live
Has swept me off my size-five feet

I read non-stop to quell the absence
I drink too much. I fall in love too fast
Obsessively collecting songs and details
Nothing's gone but nothing's lasting

Back home, before I moved
Back home, before I got here
Back home with the people who loved me my eighteen years

I'm split
Between home and here
I'm cut in half
Two beds, two lives, and I live in between
My porch back at home and this strange new world I knit
My heart is split

My heart is split
I'm home but I'm still here
I'm cut in half
Two beds, two lives, and I live in between
My porch back at home and this strange new world I knit
My heart is split
My heart is split
It happens every now and then
I hear the words I need to hear
Coming from the tiny speakers
That I've shoved into my ears
