"Heavy Lifting" as written by and Marcus Congleton....
True love I hear them take you away But you could be home in a day
And let the hammer fall
Alone because my friends have places to go
My people have people to know
They'll never seem so alone

I'm taking it easy if it comes to fate
But for the time I've gotta wait

Soothe your bones
With the papers of a man that you know
His kids are really gonna grow
And leave their daddy home
But it's an easy game
Those clouds bring heavy, heavy rain
And lifting is an awful lot of pain
We're gonna be sore for sure

I'm takin' it easy if it comes to fate
But for the time I've gotta wait

    General CommentSounds like he's saying everything goes away eventually, and it's painful to see everyone go, but you just gotta take it easy and let the world turn.

    General CommentSounds like some sort of Taoist abandonment ideas to me. Stuff changed and it can be upsetting, but it will all come out alright in the end.

    General CommentI agree with ThePython, I think he's just saying that you have to let things change and stuff happen and see what happens.

    General Commenti love how the song kind of breaks in at "soothe your bones".... and the keyboards as he says "those clouds bring heavy heavy rain and lifting is an aweful lot of pain".. gorgeous

    General CommentA friend made me listen to this band and now I can't stop listening. The break about 2 mins into the song reminds of Dear Prudence by the Beatles.
