"Heavy" as written by Holly Hafermann and Jon Ingoldsby....
Now I've come to cry
Shed your skin to rest my naked eye
And criticize
All that I implore
Seems to be one foot outside that door
Coming between me and waking

Underneath the corset of your mystery
Piece by piece undress you from your history
I'm sleeping with seclusion in sweet disarray

You can go heavy on me
And I will not weigh you down, down, down
You can be steady and clean
I can take it
Heavy on me
And I will not weigh you down

Born unto this pride
Silence is something you can't hide
You can't deny us
Nothing has been said
Yet so many words have filled my head
Now they completely surround me

Tie the lines of honest conductivity
Caught between the center of our gravity
I don't have that much time to burn anymore

    General CommentI think she is very passionate for a person who seems to be taciturn. She is yearning for him to open up to her and tell her everything and she will not hold anything against him. Although he is reserved, there is no denying the passion between them.

    General Commentthis song is beyond beautiful.
    and i agree with above.

    "undress you from your history" could also symbolize letting go of baggage
