Heavy In Your Arms





I was a heavy heart to carry – My beloved was weighed down

My arms around his neck – My fingers laced a crown

I was a heavy heart to carry – My feet dragged across the ground

So he took me to the river where he slowly let me drown.

         My love has concrete feet – My love’s an iron ball

         Wrapped around your ankles over the waterfall.”



“I’m so heavy – Heavy – Heavy in your arms

I’m so heavy- Heavy – So heavy in your arms

And is it worth the weight – All this killing time?

Are you strong enough to stand – Protecting both your heart and mine? 

Who is the betrayer – Who’s the killer in the crowd? 

The one who creeps in corridors and doesn’t make a sound?”





“My love has concrete feet – My love’s an iron ball

Wrapped around your ankles over the waterfall

I’m so heavy – Heavy – Heavy in your arms

I’m so heavy – Heavy – So heavy in your arms”



This will be my last confession – ‘I Love You’ never felt like any blessing

Whispering like its a secret – Only to condemn the one who hears it

With a heavy heart…

Heavy – Heavy – I’m so heavy in your arms.” 



”I was a heavy heart to carry – My beloved was weighed down

My arms around his neck – My fingers laced a crown

I was a heavy heart to carry – But he never let me down

When he held me in his arms my feet never touched the ground.” 



“I’m so heavy – Heavy in your arms

Heavy – Heavy – I’m so heavy in your arms.”
