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
If I thought you'd care
Heavy heart gets lighter by your side
But there are thoughts I'd wish I'd heard
If they ask you how I'm holding up
Say I'm holding out for the worst
What's the sense in being so sensitive?
Can I trade this thin skin for a shell?
There are some things I've got no feeling about
But there are some things I can't tell
Heavy heart get lighter by yourself
It's been so long since you capsized
And you've been lying out there in the sun
Has it begun? Has it begun?
Heavy heart, have you heard?
That I could use the words
