Lyrics of the Week – Week 33


Dedicated to the moment in 11th grade when my friends and I sang this in Chase’s car about twenty times in a row. 😀

“Hide and Seek” by Imogen Heap

Where are we? What the hell is going on?
The dust has only just begun to fall,
Crop circles in the carpet, sinking, feeling.
Spin me round again and rub my eyes.
This can’t be happening.
When busy streets a mess with people
would stop to hold their heads heavy.


Hide and seek.
Trains and sewing machines.
All those years they were here first.

Oily marks appear on walls
Where pleasure moments hung before.
The takeover, the sweeping insensitivity of this
still life.

Hide and seek.
Trains and sewing machines. (Oh, you won’t catch me around here)
Blood and tears,
They were here first.

Mmm, what you say?
Mm, that you only meant well? Well, of course you did.
Mmm, what you say?
Mm, that it’s all for the best? Ah of course it is.
Mmm, what you say?
Mm, that it’s just what we need? And you decided this.
Mmm what you say?
What did she say?

Ransom notes keep falling out your mouth.
Mid-sweet talk, newspaper word cut-outs.
Speak no feeling, no I don’t believe you.
You don’t care a bit. You don’t care a bit.

Ransom notes keep falling out your mouth.
Mid-sweet talk, newspaper word cut-outs.
Speak no feeling, no I don’t believe you.
You don’t care a bit. You don’t care a bit.

You don’t care a bit.
You don’t care a bit.
You don’t care a bit.
You don’t care a bit.
You don’t care a bit.

Chase Hafer introduced this song to me in 11th grade. We wanted to sing it for our select choral group in high school, Renaissance (Ren), but never came around to it. I distinctly remember a moment in 11th grade when I was in Chase’s Infiniti QX4 with Jess Arruda, Erin Lehman, and Alexis Knouse. We listened to this song and sang along with harmonies. We played the song about twenty times, taking turns with who sang which vocal part. I remember laughing a lot and smiling inadvertently. Trying to get sponsors for a choral group had never been so fun. 🙂

I really wish I could have these moments every day. I would never be unmotivated again.
