Dirty Projectors – Two Doves

During an open heart surgery, Dr. Goodwill realized that he doesn’t have a heart. The organ in front of him was immersed in blood and still pumping. But the one he had inside was feeling nothing.
Dr. Goodwill plays music in the operating room. He chooses soundtracks to accompany these intricate, physically and mentally draining procedures.
Hours into the operation, this song started playing. All of a sudden, the heartless Dr. Goodwill was flooded with some sort of overpowering emotion. So he decided to keep the chest of his patient open.
Heart exposed and all.
