"Heavy Heart" as written by and Tim Adrian*term/w/ret* Rogers....
Been watching so much TV
I'm thinner than I should be
I'm like a waterlogged ball
That no-one wants to kick around anymore
An all day morning hair-do
That no comb can get through
It's all granola and beer
A calling card and a silk cut souvenir
I miss you like sleep
And there's nothing romantic about the hours I keep
The morning's when it starts
I don't look so sharp
Now I got a heavy heart

I talk a lot about football
And girls I kissed in grade four
I piss off my friends
I'm digging a hole just staring at the floor
Now every t-shirt's got a wine stain
I'm loving cigarettes again
I know every tune about guys and girls
And hurts and hearts and moans

I miss you like sleep
And there's nothing romantic about the hours I keep
The morning's when it starts
I don't look so good
Now I've got a heavy heart

It's just a low rent paying, palpitating pulp inside my shirt
But there's a weight that's sitting
So hard oh God it hurts
Oh God it hurts

Been watching so much TV
I'm thinner than I should be
I'm like a waterlogged ball
That no-one wants to kick around anymore

I miss you like sleep
And there's nothing romantic about the hours I keep
The morning when it starts
Oh my heavy heart

    General Commentone of my favourite songs, beautifully written, beautifully composed at really hits the nail on the head of depression and loneliness. how good is the strings track in the back... that just tops it off

    General CommentI love this song. Probably the best break up/bummer songs ever written. Tim Rogers is probably one of Australias greatest songwriters ever, it's just a shame that not many people hear him.

    General Commentsuch a good song... you am I imo are the quintessential aussie rock band they've gotta ac/dc pub rock mentality which is capable of producing the tenderest of songs such as this one, which ac/dc imo opinion never could achieve
