"Heart in a Cage" is the second single from The Strokes' third album, First Impressions of Earth released in the UK on 20 March 2006, and worldwide 18 April 2006. The CD1 version of the single featured their cover of Ramones' "Life's a Gas" as a B-side, while the CD2 version featured an early version of the song "You Only Live Once" (previously named "I'll Try Anything Once"), along with the single's music video. The 7" vinyl includes "I'll Try Anything Once", performed by Julian Casablancas on the keyboard. The music video for "Heart in a Cage" was directed by Samuel Bayer, and was shot in New York City. It was shot in black and white and featured the band members playing in various locations in the city, such as on tall skyscrapers, or, in singer Julian Casablancas's case, the pavement. As said in Rolling Stone, Albert Hammond, Jr. almost died on the set of the shooting of the video when 40 mph winds almost blew him off the top of the building. Hammond commented that "It's not like it's the first time I've almost died on a shooting for a music video."

Heart In a Cage - The Strokes

Well I don t feel good
When I m fucking around
And I don t ride there
When I m stuck in the ground
So don t teach me a lesson
Cause I ve already learned
Yeah the sun will be shining
And my children will burn

Oh the heart beats in its cage

I don t want what you want
I don t feel what you feel
See I m stuck in a city
When I belong in a field

Yea we gotta live, live
Yea we gotta live, live
Yea we gotta live, live
Yea we gotta live, live
Yea we gotta live, live
Yea we gotta live, live
Yea we gotta live, live

Now its three in the morning and
Your eating alone

Oh the heart beats in its cage

All our friends they re laughing at us
All of those you loved you mistrust
Help me I m just not quite myself
Look around there s no one else there
and I went to the concert and I fought through the crowd
Yes I got too excited when I thought you were around

Oh he gets a lift, lift
Oh he gets a lift, lift
Oh he gets a lift, lift
Oh he gets a lift, lift
Oh he gets a lift, lift
Oh he gets a lift, lift
Oh he gets a lift, lift

I m sorry you were thinking I would steal your fire.
Oh the heart beats in its cage
Yes the heart beats in its cage

And the heart beats in its cage
