​Heart's Too Heavy

This song is by John Moreland and appears on the album High On Tulsa Heat (2015).

Well these angels in my eardrums they can't tell bad from good.
I lived inside these melodies just to make sure I still could.
And I cried all night even though I'm wrong.
Said honey hold me close make it feel like home.
'Cause your love's bad enough to burn all night.
Someimtes 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've got one thing on your mind.
But 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.
And you're 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've got one thing on your mind.
And I'm pulling up devils from the long dark past.
And the pain starts piling up too fast.
I can pin down the minute that I lost my buzz.
Thought I was somebody nobody could love.
Try to keep going but the ride won't steady.
You try to get to high but your heart's too heavy.
You've got one thing on your mind.
