Tell me that you love me more
Sleepless long nights that is what my youth was for
Old teenage hopes are lying at your door
Left you with nothing, but they want some more

CHORUS: Oh, you are changing your heart
Oh, you know who you are

Sweet heart, bitter heart, now I can't tell you apart
Cozy and cold, put the horse before the cart
Those teenage hopes who have tears in their eyes
Too scared to own up to one little lie

CHORUS: Oh, you're changing your heart
Oh, you know who you are

1 2 3 4 5 6 9 or 10
Money can't buy you back the that you had then
1 2 3 4 5 6 9 or 10
Money can't buy you back the love that you had then

CHORUS: Oh, you're changing your heart
Oh, you know who you are
Oh, you're changing your heart
Oh, you know who you are, who you are

Before, before the teenage boys
They're breaking your heart
Before the teenage boys
They're breaking your heart

date released: 2007 by Feist

Leslie Feist was born in Amherst, Nova Scotia, in 1976. Both her parents were artists; her father was an abstract expressionist painter and her mother, a ceramics artist. The couple divorced and Lyn Feist moved to Regina, Saskatchewan, and then to Calgary Alberta with her two children.

Feist's first taste of performance came at the age of twelve when she danced with 1000 other youth for the Calgary Winter Olympics.

At the age of fifteen, Feist was already experimenting with alternative music. Joining a Calgary punk band called Placebo, she rocked her way playing all the roles from backup music to lead vocalist. Soon she was touring around Canada, the U.S. and Europe. It was in Toronto in 2001 where she joined an idie rock group and produced her first successful album, "Let It Die" for which she won two Juno Awards in 2004 for Best New Artist and Best Alternative Rock Album.

Fast forward to 2007 when Feist released her solo album, "The Reminder" which contained her huge surprise hit, "1234". Later, Feist would joke that it was her dual Canadian-American citizenship (her father was American), that landed "1234" the feature spot in an Apple iPod nano commercial and a place in major rockdom. "1234" won another Juno Award for Feist as "Single of the Year". Moving on to major television exposure, Feist performed her hit song on Sesame Street teaching children to count, and then on late night with Saturday Night Live.

1..2..3..4, here we go for Feist ---it is inside and out, onwards and upwards from here on. Feist will be performing for the Vancouver Winter Olympics in February, 2010. Stay tuned.
