Music Video[]

The video starts with a planet in the middle of an asteroid belt just standing there, dead when the beat starts up. As soon as 2-D starts singing the first verse, a meteor hits the planet which causes the planet to illuminate. The planet keeps moving in place until D.R.A.M sings then it turns purple.

As the beat rises, another meteor hits the planet which causes the planet to illuminate even more. Which gives it more of a purple, and then blue look. The planet and the Asteroid Belt spin faster as the second verse appears.

The final meteor hits the planet and you guessed it, illuminates the planet and gives it the look it had before the first meteor hit. The Asteroid Belt moves slower after the third verse is sung both by 2-D and D.R.A.M. and such ends the video.

Lyrics[]

[2D]
When the passing looks to die for
Take it in your heart now, love her
When the case is out
And tired and sodden
Take it in your heart
Take it in your heart

[D.R.A.M.]
Back to when it was cool
'Cause there's no substitute
Who even knows the truth?
The truth, the truth

[2D]
Take it in your heart now, love her
Take it in your heart, heart, heart, heart
Take it in your heart
Take it in your heart, heart, heart

[D.R.A.M.]
Where it all goes down

[2D]
Outside, cold and ghosting out with jet lag
I took it to the right man
Took it all back
When the courts were closing
It was Bobby gracing
I know that
I put it to the right man
He put it back

Caught in your eyes
Stacks of lights
Come streaming back
Make it for the best times
Growing pains, good times
Good times, good times
Good times, good times
Good times, good times

Take it in your heart now, love her
Take it in your heart, heart, heart, heart
Take it in your heart
Take it in your heart , heart, heart,

[D.R.A.M.]
Where it all goes down

[2D]
Andromeda
Andromeda, Andromeda
Take it in your heart now, love her
Andromeda, Andromeda
Andromeda, Andromeda
Take it in your heart
Take it in your heart

[D.R.A.M.]
Where it all goes down

Trivia[]

  • In Greek mythology, Andromeda was an Ethiopian princess rescued by the hero Perseus. A northern constellation is named after her as is the Andromeda galaxy. It translates to “to be mindful of a man” from the Greek element ανηρ (aner) “man” (genitive ανδρος) combined with μεδομαι (medomai) “to be mindful of”. Space themes are found throughout Humanz. However, Damon Albarn explained it is named after an old soul club in 1980s Colchester. [2]
  • This song was written for the aunt of one of Damon’s colleagues. In an interview, Damon explains that she loved astronomy and that he wanted to dedicate a song to her.
