When I heard about the coming day
Wish I could wake up from the dream
In it I see a family photographed
And there you are tucked in the scene
And there's a jealous net inside my chest
There's a hurt and sadness there
Maybe I'd tell you all about it
I thought you'd care
Heavy heart gets lighter by your side
But there are thoughts I'd wish I'd heard
And if they ask you how I'm holdin' up
Say I'm holdin' out for the words
What's the sense in bein' so sensitive
Can I trade this thin skin for a shell?
But there are some things I've got no feelin' about
But there are some things I can tell
Heavy heart get lighter by yourself
It's been so long since you capsized
And you've been lyin' out there in the sun
Has it begun? Has it begun?
Ohh, heavy heart, have you heard
That I could use the words?
