Florence and the machine – heavy in your arms

Heavy In Your Arms

© Florence and the Machine

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
And 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. Heavy in your arms

And is it worth the wait,
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 is 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

Whisper it like it’s a secret

Uttered to condemn the one who hears it
With a heavy heart

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

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