Ain't It Heavy Lyrics

by Melissa Etheridge

Sometimes I know that it's never enough
Survival is fine but satisfaction is rough
I try with an Angel tonight

Spread these wings and I'm on for the ride
Cruise these streets where my innocence hides
There's some things you can't deny

What is it about this human condition?
I need some kind of promise
Some kind of submission tonight

Heavy, ain't it heavy
Ain't the night heavy
Heavy, ain't it heavy
Ain't the night heavy

I'm feelin' kinda loose, I'm feelin' kinda mean
I'm been feeling kinda wild since I turned seventeen
Or is it madness?

Tell me where can a woman find any kind of peace?
When does the fury and the agony cease?
How long have I got to say, "Please"?

There's a hole in my jeans I only wanted to fade
I've been ripping out seams
Somebody else made tonight

Heavy, ain't it heavy
Ain't the night heavy
Heavy, ain't it heavy
Ain't the night heavy

So heavy
'Cause a woman needs
'Cause a woman needs some thing

Heavy, heavy
Ain't the night heavy

Heavy, heavy
Ain't the night heavy
...
