Music Monday: “Heartbeats” by The Knife

Every Monday, we highlight one song that you may not have heard of, may not have heard in ages, or one that we just can’t seem to get out of our heads. Enjoy!

Thanks to its inclusion in last night’s episode of Girls on HBO, I can’t get this song out of my head. “Heartbeats” by The Knife isn’t new, but it’s a great song that still feels fresh. They were ahead of the curve with their slowed down electronic sound.

Watch the official video here:

Full lyrics:
One night to be confused
One night to speed up truth
We had a promise made
Four hands and then away
Both under influence
We had divine sense
To know what to say
Mind is a razorblade

To call for hands of above to lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough for me, no

One night of magic rush
The start – a simple touch
One night to push and scream
And then relief
Ten days of perfect tunes
The colors red and blue
We had a promise made
We were in love

To call for hands of above to lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough for me, no
To call for hands of above to lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough for me, oh

And you, you knew the hand of a devil
And you kept us awake with wolves teeth
Sharing different heartbeats in one night

To call for hands of above to lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough for me, no
To call for hands of above to lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough for me, oh
