"Missed My Heart" (new song from recent shows)

I have a recording if anyone would like it - i'm not sure what the policy around here is, but to be safe, just message me if you'd like it sent through.

Gotta say, this song sounded like a masterpiece at the Sydney show.

Re: "Missed My Heart" (new song from recent shows)

Great to hear what a potential classic this is and I hope to hear it when Mark (g)rumbles in to The Button Factory Dublin on 7th November (the day after Animal Collective will be in Vicar St...a nice compare and contrast there). The question has to be asked why this couldn't have been included on ATT or on the bonus disc?

I'm hoping it is an indication of new songs he is currently writing!

Formica, thanks a lot. Song seems quite romantic and nice but he definitely decided not to bother himself with complex playing here

Re: "Missed My Heart" (new song from recent shows)

I know his pronunciation can be mumbly at best sometimes but listening to this a few times I thought the title might be "Messed My Heart" but as you say it is a lovely song indeed.
I'm guessing that if he was asked what the song was called he'd tell whoever asked to "Go forth and multiply".

Re: "Missed My Heart" (new song from recent shows)

I made an attempt at transcribing the lyrics, but couldn't quite get them all.

Here's what I could make of the lyrics so far. Please add and make corrections if you can:

I broke into her house
saw her sitting there
drinking Coke and whiskey
in her bra and underwear.

I saw him in the kitchen
hanging up the phone
asked him nicely please
to pack his things and go.

He gave her a reassuring look
and said he wouldn't leave
but I asked him once again
this time pulled out my sheath.

I stuck him in the back
and I pulled it out slow
and I watched him fall down
and as the morning sun rose
he looked at me
and said you missed my heart
you missed my heart
you got me good
I knew you would
but you missed my heart
you missed my heart
were his last words
before he died.

Looking out the window
up at the blue sky
listening to her scream
listening to her cry.

A feeling of relief
came over my soul
I couldn't take it anymore
and I lost control.

I chased her up the stairs
and I pinned her to the ground
and underneath her whimpering
I could hear the sirens sound.

I rattled off a list
of everything I missed,
like going to the movies with her
and the way she kissed me.

Driving into downtown ???
showing her off
the backyard barbecues and reunions in the park.

I said I loved her skin
when she started laughing
while I clenched down on her wrist
she said that's quite a list
but there's one thing you missed
you missed my heart
you missed my heart
that's quite a list
but what you really missed
you missed my heart
you missed my heart
that's quite a list
but what you really missed.

Running through the parking lot
running through the fields
policeman on my back
something hit my skull and cracked.

They dragged me off to jail
set a million dollar bail
where I tried to tie a noose
but I failed and I broke loose.

Went racing through the prison yard
shot down by a tower guard
who got me in shins
and he got me in the arms.

Strapped me in a gurney
took me off to the infirmary
where the priest read my last rites
and just before
everything went dark
I said you missed my heart
you missed my heart
just before
everything went dark
I said you missed my heart
you missed my heart
just before
everything went dark.

The most poetic dream
came floating like a seed,
laying in my life,
but draining out of me.

A childhood scene
of mad sky and moonbeams,
fishing with my friends
sitting in the ??? bends.

Watching the Ohio river flowing down,
waiting for the ??? catfishes to come
down river from the mountain
prison graveyard
down river from the mountain
prison graveyard
down river from the mountain
prison graveyard.
