the heavy and the slow lyrics – andy grammer

“the heavy and the slow”

see i, i don’t do sorrow
i used to borrow clouds from my friends
fold them neatly, hand them back again
but tonight it is raining, oh
i’m not complaining but i know what it’s like
to have your worries chase you through the night

[chorus:]
it’s the green and the blue
it’s the purple and the black
when the heavy colors fall on you
you can not give ’em back
and i don’t think i’d trade
the things that i now know
if there’s anything to learn on earth
i’m certain, it’s the heavy and the slow
mmmmm..

see my roads were one ways, oh
i give and don’t take a thing
i never needed what the others had to bring
but tonight, oh no, i am broken, oh
i’ve been cracked open wide
and anyone who wants to come inside

[chorus:]
it’s the green and the blue
it’s the purple and the black
when the heavy colors fall on you
you can not give ’em back
and i don’t think i’d trade
the things that i now know
if there’s any way to learn on earth
i’m certain, it’s the heavy and the slow

it’s the heavy and the slow, oh
see these nights are full of gold
but i’m so alone
and these days have so much grown
but it’s all so cold

but i’m here so bruise me life
confuse me life
bring on the rain
i’ll do this all again
wear me thin, so i might begin
to gain a sense of what’s important

[chorus:]
it’s the green and the blue
it’s the purple and the black
when the heavy colors fall on you
you can not give ’em back
and i don’t think i’d trade
the things that i now know
if there’s anything to learn on earth
i’m certain, it’s the heavy and the slow, oh

it’s the heavy and the slow, yeah
it’s the heavy and the slow, oh
the heavy and the slow, mmm
