Drums, The - Head Of The Horse Lyrics




- Hi
- Hi
- Welcome
- Who's this?
- Jonny
- Oh, okay, just checking

Shrink-wrapped magazines in a paper bag
He hugged me when I came home
Only boy in a ballet class
He hugged me when I came home
Dad's on the pulpit talking about love
Mum's in the nursery cussing me out
He hugged me when I came home
Jean was crazy but she loved me
When she died I slept in her car
He hugged me when I came home

Here, here I go again
All these memories
Coming back at me
Here, here I go again
All these memories
Get the best of me
Get the best of me

Have a headache?
We'll grab the oil
If you complain
Well, that's the devil talking
He hugs me when I come home
Your sister got married fourteen times
But if you fall in love, son, that's a crime
He hugs me when I come home
Well I fell in love and told them I was happy
My dad hugged me and said this would be the last hug
This would be the last hug
This would be the last hug

Here, here I go again
All these memories
Coming back at me
Here, here I go again
All these memories
Get the best of me
Get the best of me

Philip took me out for pizza in London
He said they were his friends and they weren't mine
Philip took me for a walk in New York City
Please hug me when I come home
He told me my story was boring
He told me my story was boring

Here, here I go again
All these memories
Coming back at me
Here, here I go again
All these memories
Get the best of me
Get the best of me

Here I go
Here I go again
Here I go
Here I go again
Here I go
Here I go again
Here I go
Here I go again

  10. decoydad

    this is the drums style that I have always loved. sad to see Jacob and Connor gone but Johnny can fully express himself alone in his music.

  11. Kenny grumpo

    sounds like suede - my insatiable one

  12. Nártlėd Æ

    cool song

  13. VillDondeTeFuiste

    This song is related with "Best Friend". In Best Friend he talk about a girl,and she died when he have 23 years,i suppouse Johnny was in depression, now in the lyrics of this song the story give more information like "When she died i slept in her car". Johnny in this song are saying "i love all my memories,bad's or good's,cuz that persons in that time, now make me get the best of me".

  14. Shlomi Zvi

    I want to meet the guy who told you your story was boring, and kick his ass.

  15. Britt Rose

  27. Felipe Damasio

    senti o impacto

  28. Dominic AaAaa

    really like all 3 of the songs released so far looking forward to the album after finding the last one a bit disappointing - crazy how there's only one member left in the band though :0

  29. Karl Kirschenmann

    jonny please come to philly!

  30. William Domingues

    amazing song, but old The drums is better

  31. Faye Davis

    such a deep story being presented in this track. you guys have made something beautiful

  32. Phablo Spindola

    really really like your songs, all of your works.. but, this is awful. I'm sorry a just couldn't listen to this song.

  33. subwaysurfer

    This makes me SO emotional. Any explenation for the phone conversation at the BEGINNING? It's real audio? Between whom??

    youtubeyoutubeyoutube

    subwaysurfer I think it's audio from an old home video and it's johnny and his dad. Could be wrong. Might even be from a scene from a movie.

  34. Ryan Garcia

    I come from a pretty religious background. With that being said if my son/daughter were to come out gay I couldn't love them any less. That's still my child for crying out loud! Really sad lyrics here but I love it!

    Diego

    I think it refers to Jacob, a former member of the band.

    Sofia Milla

    Diego Tapia no this song is jonnys personal experience

    Diego

    I was wrong to comment sorry.
    In another commentary a user asked that the beginning of the song was due and I think that it is to Jacob ex member of the band.
    -Hi
    -Hi
    -Welcome
    -who is this?
    -Johnny
    -Oh ok.It is Jacob

    Duvew

    Diego Tapia i dont think this song has anything to do with jacob, the lyrics say its “oh ok just checking”

  35. The Dogfather

    That synth sounds delicious~! 🤤

  36. Manolo Balcázar

    -Felipe me llevo por unas tortas de tamal a Ecatepec-pinche rolón, ya pronto estarán en el CC :)

    Cada uno comenzó hacer otra vida fuera de The Drums empezando desde el 2010 Adam Kessler dejó la banda para dedicarse al trabajo de carpintería. Connor Hanwick en el 2012 sale de la Banda para tocar en la banda de su novia como guitarrista, después comenzó a estar en estaciones de radios pero retomó su gira con The Drums el año pasado ahora Tom Haslow está en reemplazo. Jacob Graham sale en el 2016 para dedicarse a un nuevo proyecto de su banda. Jonny se mantuvo y el hizo todo el álbum Abysmal Thoughts

    lyrics?

  49. Bryan t

    No words... ❤

  50. Roberto Pérez

    Achis achis los mariachis

  51. subwaysurfer

    Thank god they're bringing back the sound that made them famous. I still have to recover from the mess that encyclopedia was....

    Taneleer Tivan

    how was encyclopedia a mess. I personally loved it as much as the others, it's no different, are you just trying to be cool by saying it sucked??

    Giovanni Gracia

    it was totally different from their older stuff. We get it you liked it but doesn't make you right just because you're blind and don't see it.

    Flezrari

    Famous? Not really. They made a splash with Let's Go Surfing. But other than that, they're relatively unknown for their other 3 albums Portomemto, Encyclopedia, and Abysmal.

  52. subwaysurfer

    LYRICS PLEASE

  53. Giovani Ramirez

    Como que Pierce ya no esta con los demás?

    Sebastian Zamudio

    Giovani Ramirez de toda la agrupación original ya sólo queda él u.u yo sigo creyendo que eran mejor antes, aunque este nuevo álbum tiene buena pinta :)

    cesar deku

    Sebastian Gonzalez el álbum suena genial, pero los he escuchado en vivo y la verdad estaban mejor cuando estaba jacob con sus sintetizadores y los coros igual

  55. Matthew Paulett

    Im not crying, you are!!!!

  56. Max Miller

    The past is finally checking up

  57. ChrisKC

    Man these lyrics are fucking sad. If my son comes out as gay, I'm going to love him with all my heart.

    Marco Santuzzo

    Fuck off bud, honestly.
    They are deffo more normal than you

    ChrisKC

    This is the weirdest comment - I don't even know how to make sense of it. Of course I won't beat him if he's not gay. I'm just not going to beat my son - period. How does that work for you? Gay - no beating. Straight - no beating.

    K S

    you're a fucking disgusting human being

    Johnny Guitar

    Ad Meliora being gay is normal dumbass

    Captain Chumbuwumba

    ChrisKC please

    aunque si tuvo unos cuantos éxitos con Hanwick, Graham y Kessler

    Sebastián Katarn

    Su mayor éxito es "money" y lo hizo con ellos

    Janelly Jarumi Andrade Vilchis

    aunque también destacan "i need fun in my life" y "The future"

  63. TbanYT

    This is so soothing and relaxing

  64. Brandon Enoch

    ohhh this is nice!! Looking forward to the album guys
