lyrics

HEAVY HEART

I never dreamed
Your bones
In some plastic bag
It's been six years since
You left while you slept
I never dreamed
I would only see you
In my heart
In my head

I drew stars on your hands
And a star where you stand

Now it's drugs to sleep
And drugs to wake
Drugs to socially lubricate
No circadian rhythm left
To speak of

And now
All your winter gear is old and thin
And layers aren't cutting it
And the wind is cutting in
And your cut is not making ends meet

Heavy heart
Won't stop stalling out
Heavy heart won't stop
