about

We live in a world where we tend to keep all our hurt, fears and anxieties to ourselves. We share the peaks and not the troughs. Heavy Lifting is about the quiet, dark moments we usually battle with on our own. Writing this song has definitely helped me with my struggles - I hope it can provide comfort for others too

lyrics

Look, don't you start...I'm having a bad time 

holding my breath
waiting on punchlines 



Heavy Lifting 

When no one's looking

I am done

Enough already 



Smoke up the day, sound way of dealing
...
Let me marinate 
in this soup of feelings 



Heavy Lifting 

When no one's looking 

I am done

Enough already 



This war-torn feeling in my bones ad ligaments 

I know it will take time to heal 

This war-torn feeling in my bones and ligaments 

it's an uphill struggle still 



Heavy Lifting 

When no one's looking 

I am done

Enough already 



Stare through the wall
typical landlord shade of white

turn to face the window
here comes that low hanging light...
