Lyrics: 

You've been up there, in the background
Grainy image, and no sound but
My heart bumps
My heart bumps
And all of a sudden

Heavy headlines weren't the brightest
I was looking for heart and yours was the lightest
My heart bumps
My heart bumps
And I can't keep it hidden

So, hey - Blue Eyes
Meet grey skies
The signs point to a good word getting out
With likeminded guys
Your blue-eyed bullshit's never gonna get me down

This is typical, this is grim
This is a fine damn mess I find myself in
My heart bumps
My heart bumps
Didn't ask for a faint love

This is typical, didn't plan this
My own brand of predictable madness
(My heart) bumps
My heart bumps
This fire alarm in the hot dark

So, hey - Blue Eyes
Meet grey skies
The signs point to a good word getting out
You're just my type
Your blue-eyed bullshit's never gonna get me down

You've been hosting in the background
And I'm gonna spread a steady beat round
My heart bumps and it's beautiful hell
There's nothing better than somebody who can laugh at themselves

Heavy headlines, these are the worst times
And I'm crushing hard just like it's the first time
My heart bumps, oh, you got me wired
'Cos you're tired but you're trying to be all smiles

Hey - Blue Eyes
Meet grey skies
I'm pissed about how much I need you right now
In these uncertain times
Your blue-eyed bullshit's never gonna get me down

(My heart bumps)

Hey - Blue Eyes
Meet grey skies
The signs point to a good word getting out
We're likeminded guys
Your blue-eyed bullshit's never gonna get me down

Lovely recording and a sweet write. It was fun hearing the repeated lines of my heart bumps followed by a different line, like watching a new romance unfold with giddy vibes but also some trepidation. I reeeally liked how the backing vocals carried the bump a bumps under the final choruses, that was cool. Great write!

Lovely. Dig the vibe and way the words are sung. Good lyrics too.

Ooh, this has a mellow pop sound I really love. Catchy, with some great harmony (especially on "my heart bumps") and a sharp edge with that chorus. Excellent lyrics all around, though I particularly like "I was looking for a heart and yours was the lightest." Actually reminds me of some of my favorite singer-songwriters of the 90s and early 00s. Great listen!

wow, this is really impressive- catchy as hell with that great 'bumps' delivery, and all those great internal rhymes (which im a big fan of) , and the lyric is wonderfully enigmatic in a way that draws in the listener- wonderful write and recording/performance! great work!

This is a fantastic song. The vocals really carry the song along. The backing vocals are gorgeous and really get into your head (I’m still singing bump bump!). Well played. The lyrics have an unrequited love vibe.

Beautiful. Those repeated "bumps" just go in and stick and by the second verse I already know that I am going to be earwormed by this for weeks...
