the weight of love lyrics – snow patrol

“the weight of love”

your ancient threat, i can hear it from the garden
i can see it coming, i can see it come for miles
what you’re thinking right now? ’cause i think that i can guess
if we set off now, we’ll have the highway to ourselves
and you love the little signs of life
you love it when we lose our minds
you love these little wars of words
you love it when they call your name, your name
a new empire beckons, a new kingdom in the distance
no gods are present, just the sky, the earth, and us
no wings no halos, nor the thunder in the footsteps
’cause fear and anger, they are law unto themselves
and you love the little signs of life
you love it when we lose our minds
you love these little wars of words
you love it when they call your name

it’s the weight of love in your arms
it’s the weight of love in your arms
it’s the weight of love so gentle in your arms
it’s the weight of love in your arms
it’s the weight of love in your arms
it’s the weight of love so gentle in your arms

it’s just like you told me, that i should learn to let it all go
it just took ‘til now, for me to get just what you meant
my heart is thumping, i can feel it in my fingers
no fear, no anger, we are law unto ourselves

it’s the weight of love in your arms
it’s the weight of love in your arms
it’s the weight of love so gentle in your arms
it’s the weight of love in your arms
it’s the weight of love in your arms
it’s the weight of love so gentle in your arms
it’s the weight of love in your arms
it’s the weight of love in your arms
it’s the weight of love so gentle in your arms
