Shape of My Heart

Noah and the Whale



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Charlie Fink, the band's singer and chief songwriter told the Sunday Times July 6, 2008 that "Shape of My Heart" is "a celebration song, but it's a celebration of loneliness. So you've got that optimism, but there's an underlying melancholy that I think most people understand. The song is like a party for the uninvited."
The band's name is a marriage of the title of one of their favorite films, The Squid and the Whale and Noah Baumbach, who directed the movie.
