Heavy as Lead Lyrics Meanings

Heavy as Lead Lyrics

He left with my mind last week
Reached right in and took it to keep
And he turned on his heel before looking at me
And said "babe no it's too late to weep"

Now this gap in my head it keeps growing
All this shelter can't keep me from knowing
That those words were true that he told me
No, there's nothing more unfolding

And it's gone from my heart, like my mind from my head
And I could say a lot but I think it's all said
You never saw me the way that I am and as I sit here I feel
Heavy as lead
Heavy as lead

I remember that summer I knew you
Everyday I got closer and we knew
That I'd fallen in love with a version of you
That had grown from a vision I'd had back at school

Yeah and Levon filled my ears that day
Crying out that the poor farmer had died in a way
So noble and true to return to the land
I could feel the warmth in the palm of my hand And it's gone from my heart, like my mind from my head
And I could say a lot but I think it's all said
You never saw me the way that I am and as I sit here I feel
Heavy as lead
Heavy as lead
Heavy as lead
Heavy as lead

Standing on the shoulders of giants of old
Makes this a trying balancing act
And I can't hold myself up now I'm tumbling, trying to be bold
And I gotta pick myself up at the place that I have rolled

Loving you never really seemed to me
To be anything other than the opposite of apathy
And now as I watch you leaving me with my mind in tow
I just can't let it be

And it's gone from my heart, like my mind from my head
And I could say a lot but I think it's all said
You never saw me the way that I am and as I sit here I feel
Heavy as lead
