Heavy Weather

 

I got so much lovin'

that I got more than you need

I got so much lovin'

why won't you believe

Coming down

coming down

hear the desperation in your sigh

Coming down

coming down

let the heavy weather pass you by

pay the devil for your sympathy

and all the while

it's slipping through your hands

and you just can't make it stay

 

I got so much lovin'

that I got more than you need

I got so much lovin'

why won't you believe

You see what you want to see

believe in someone else's mental hand-me-downs

weaponise stupidity

learn to live in make believe and lies

still grasping at the living

and all the while there's nothing in your hands

and you just can't make it stay

 

I got so much lovin'

that I got more than you need

I got so much lovin'

why won't you believe

Coming down

coming down

see the desperation in your smile

Coming down

coming down

let the heavy weather pass you by

pay the devil for your sympathy

and try to hold the sunlight

in your hands

and you still can't make it stay
