José González - Heartbeats Lyrics

[The Knife cover]

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 scent
To know what to say
Mind is a razor blade

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

And you, you knew the hand of the devil
And you, kept us awake with wolf 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

  2. Shweta Agrawal Suhane

    I heard this in everything everything... And then I looked up the movie playlist and heard every song, but this wasn't there, so the next time the movie came on TV, I wrote all the lyrics and then found the song. FINALLY!!!!!!!💜💜

    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 razor blade

    Two minds were stimulated and engaged on a level they have never experienced with another. There was an openness and they both easily spoke their truth. They were confused, attracted to the connection, but not wanting to mess things up by taking it to the next level. They are alive, in tune, in the moment! Two very different people meeting minds.

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

    This part has different meanings throughout the song. At this point, the person is trying not to be tempted into lust/sin. He/she is trying to do the right thing, but knows that the temptation has exceeded and distracted too much, it is too late to pray for help!

    One night of magic rush
    The start, a simple touch

    One is initiating the intimacy and slowly moving in and the writer is confused and not sure if he/she wants to mess things up and take it to the next level, but the moment is so magical, that it would seem wrong not to see where it goes.

    One night to push and scream
    And then relief

    .They succumb to the pleasure and give up on trying to control and safe guard their emotions. They allow themselves to feel the intimacy and see each other on a deeper level. They open the window that leads to attachment.

    Ten days of perfect tunes
    The colors red and blue
    We had a promise made
    We were in love

    They are in the high of exploring a new lover. They are hot and cold (red and blue) because within, they are still battling the need to control and protect themselves from the inevitable. They natural gravitate towards attachment and feelings to the other, while at the same time, battle against that closeness that can lead to pain.

    And you
    You knew the hand of the devil
    And you
    Kept us awake with wolves' teeth
    Sharing different heartbeats
    In one night

    They began to trust each other and get familiar and open up... there was passionate, hot, Wild, primitive (wolves) sex the two very different beings shared. Both their hearts against each other: although they are having a wild night, their hearts are aligned and they know things will never be the same, they can't go back now, yet they are both scared and know they are walking the fine line that leads to hurt (hand of the devil)

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

    Nothing can distract from this euphoric state that is occupying this persons mind all the is like an addiction/drug.

    The affair is short, eventually one calls it because he/she can't deal with knowing the pain that could come later should they allow themselves to fall deeper.

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

    Now this means that not even God is a refuge for rest for this broken heart, nothing can stop the repeat and thoughts and the what could of/should of's.

    The kind of song that I wanna both just preserve for myself but also want more people to find... 💙💙💙

  55. benjy

    Jose Gonzalez's Cover is kind of castrated out of all the emotions that the original has in it. How can such a good song be so spoiled?

  56. Luis Garcia

    I hate lyric videos. They're so fucking stupid.

  57. grarghov1

    I haven't listened to this song for a decade - now it resurfaced again when my father passed away.
    And I just realized that it was a huge hit back then and sounded so original. However it isn't. The guy just recreated the good old Simon & Garfunkel feeling in 2006 :)

    Everything everything

  68. Levi McKinley

    It’s just amazing how he took such a meh song and made it a masterpiece. This one has so much more depth and is less washed out. Electronic isn’t always bad, and I enjoy it, but for a song like this, this version is better in every way (in my opinion :)) still one of my favorite songs ever.

    Ray Khan

    Just remember without that meh version this wouldnt exist

  69. marszipan

    Am I the only one who is back here because of missing leyton? No good couples on tv right now :(

  70. Shirley George

    Truly an elevating piece of music. The world needs more artists like you who make good music.💙

  80. eth3rl0rds

    This song is so overused and kids are talking about today's shows and movies that i forgot where I listened to this first! But meh...

  81. Tamara 1023

    I searched for this song for about 15 years (I remember that it was on tv, now I know it was a sony commercial) then I heard it when I bought cigarettes. Literally my heart started to beat fast haha, so I was standing there trying to memorize the lyrics, when the tobacconist asked me “what you want??” When I got home I listened to it like 10 times.


    Same here. Same time, about 2004/2005, Sony ad, loved it forever


    Same really, but for some reason I always thought it was a commercial for hp printers 😂 remember hearing it as a 12-13 year old and falling in love with it, found it years later and still get the same feeling I got the 1st time listening to it

    Rebeca Rosas

    @Wonderland I also thought it was from an HP commercial omg


    Rebeca Rosas glad I was not alone in this haha 😂

  82. Rezolutionist

    And Life is still strange somehow..

  83. Retro Wanderlust

    This kind of songs deserves to be a soundtrack in some of John Green’s movie or any romance thingy aight?

  84. Neelargho Ray

    Those days..... when friendship was not an app , not the likes that you got on your profile, but the excitement that you had in meeting them and tell them every little thing that needed to be told.... when love or having a crush was not stalking into her profile and burying the word deep down in your heart, but the butterflies you had in seeing them ....... those were the days I wanna go back to

    Dillon Sharwood

    @Deon Mpofu this artist has another song called stay alive, that is from the movie, and if you like this song you will that song, give it a listen. basically the entire soundtrack of the movie is like that song, trust me you don't need to know what the movie is about, in fact not knowing is even better. it is in my top 5 movies of all time. i promise you will not regret it.


    yes. this is an amazing day to be alive
