Riff: Jimi Hendrix – “Bleeding Heart”

Mar 4, 2013

I hear the birds call my name/Ah little birds call me/Cause my heart is so much in pain

from Bleeding Heart lyrics by Jimi Hendrix

Steeped in a thick smattering of raw, slow roasted blues, Jimi pours his heart out in a windstorm of wailing confessionals. He acknowledges both sides of solitude, but by end all he can hope for is a little bit of love to ease his sorrows; [LISTEN].
