lyrics

OUT ON THE CONCRETE
SITTIN’ BESIDE ME
I THOUGHT YOU’D ALWAYS BE
MY ONE TRUE LOVE
WE WERE JUST NINETEEN
I WAS SO NIAVE
WHAT I WOULDN’T GIVE RIGHT NOW
TO BE THAT DUMB
LOOK HOW FAR I’VE COME

IT’S HEAVY ON THE HEART
WHEN THE WORLD KNOCKS YOU DOWN
THERE’S NOT ENOUGH LOVE TO LIFT US UP
THERE’S NOT ENOUGH MONEY TO GO AROUND
& IT’S HEAVY ON THE HEART
IT’S HEAVY AS A WEIGHT
WHEN THE WORLD IS ON YOUR SHOULDERS
IT’S HARD TO STAND UP STRAIGHT
WELL, IT’S HEAVY ON THE HEART
YEAH

HEAVY IS THE MOON TONIGHT
IT’S HANGIN’ LIKE A TRAFFIC LIGHT
SITTIN’ AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SKY
IT SEEMS SO CLOSE
CLOSE ENOUGH TO ALMOST TOUCH
I REALLY DON’T CARE SO MUCH
WHAT’S THE USE IN REACHIN’ OUT
IF YOUR HANDS DON’T CLOSE?
GET USED TO LETTIN’ GO

IT’S HEAVY ON THE HEART
WHEN THE WORLD KNOCKS YOU DOWN
THERE’S NOT ENOUGH LOVE TO LIFT US UP
THERE’S NOT ENOUGH MONEY TO GO AROUND
& IT’S HEAVY ON THE HEART
IT’S HEAVY AS A WEIGHT
WHEN THE WORLD IS ON YOUR SHOULDERS
IT’S HARD TO STAND UP STRAIGHT
WELL, IT’S HEAVY ON THE HEART
YEAH

WELL, IT’S HEAVY ON THE HEART
WHEN THE WORLD KNOCKS YOU DOWN
THERE’S NOT ENOUGH LOVE TO LIFT US UP
THERE’S NOT ENOUGH MONEY TO GO AROUND
& IT’S HEAVY ON THE HEART
WHEN A MOTHER CRIES
& IT’S HEAVY ON THE HEART
WHEN A GOOD FRIEND DIES
& IT’S HEAVY ON THE HEART
WHEN ONE’S JUST NOT ENOUGH
WHEN YOU JUST CAN’T WALK THE LINE
& WHEN YOUR HANDS ARE CUFFED
& IT’S HEAVY ON THE HEART
IT’S AN ANCHOR ON A CHAIN
ON A ROCK, AT THE BOTTOM OF A RIVER
RISIN’ IN THE RAIN
& IT’S HEAVY ON THE HEART
IT’S HEAVY AS A WEIGHT
WHEN THE WORLD IS ON YOUR SHOULDERS, MAN
IT’S HARD TO STAND UP STRAIGHT
WELL, IT’S HEAVY ON THE HEART
IT’S HEAVY ON THE HEART
YEAH

about

Justin Pickard Dallas, Texas

In the course of Justin Pickard’s musical pilgrimage, his songwriting has covered a gamut of subjects: smoking and drinking, the ins and outs of grave-robbery, love and loss, and UFOs that resemble bananas. These subjects in any other writer’s care may not coalesce as seamlessly as they do in the hands of Pickard, who ties them together with wit, passion and heart.

-Jamie Vahala, Dallas Observer
