"The Weight of Love" as written by Garret Lee, Paul Wilson, Tom Simpson, Gary Lightbody, Jonathan Graham Quinn and Nathan Connolly....
Your engine threatens, I can hear it from the garden
I can see it coming, I can see it come from 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 a 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 a 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

    My OpinionAnother fantastic song from Fallen Empires. Love the build up to the end, and the "you love the little signs of life" etc.

    My InterpretationThis one is intriguing to me because I don't quite understand it.
    It seems like it's about a relationship with a girl who likes to argue...

    "You love it when we lose our minds
    You love these little wars of words"
    "Because fear and anger they are a law unto themselves"

    Or perhaps about the freedom of the relationship they have

    "My heart is thumping I can feel it in my fingers
    No fear no anger we are a law unto ourselves"
    "A new empire beckons a new kingdom in the distance
    No gods are present just the sky the earth and us"
    [As if the kingdom is theirs and they can do whatever they want, because no gods.

    This could also perhaps explain "the weight of love"... with nobody else to tell you what to do with it, the weight of love is all yours to carry... they seem to enjoy the weight of love.]

    Awesome song.

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite from the album. The whole album, and this song in particular, feels quite a bit like Bloc Party to me, which is a good thing in my book.
