week 6 – john moreland

i was on a sad guitar kick the day i found john moreland and i’m not sure what stuck out about his music, but i could relate to this song in particular and thought i’d include it.

Heart’s too heavy

Well these angels in my eardrums, they can’t tell bad from good
I’ve lived inside these melodies just to make sure I still could
Then I cried all night even though I’m grown
Said, honey hold me close, make it feel like home
Cause your love’s bright enough to burn all night
Sometimes love is a losing fight

You try to keep going, but the ride won’t steady
You try to get high, but your heart’s too heavy
You got one thing on your mind

Now there’s snake eyes on the sidewalk and fireworks overhead
Won’t you roll out that red carpet when we all wind up dead
As smoke rings fade like a memory
You’re honest as a ghost, maybe twice as free
You’ve got faith enough to lift this curse
What if faith is just a false god’s verse

You try to keep going, but the ride won’t steady
You try to get high, but your heart’s too heavy
You got one thing on your mind

Now I’m pulling up devils from the long, dark past
But the pain starts piling up too fast
I can pin down the minute when I lost my buzz
Thought I was somebody nobody could love

You try to keep going, but the ride won’t steady
You try to get high, but your heart’s too heavy
You got one thing on your mind
