Heavy On My Mind

Written by

Ben Harper

Original Artist

Mavis Staples

We did everything we could
To slow this world down
Now my love is in the ground
Shoulder to shoulder
Eye to eye
Wish this were farewell
But I'm afraid it's goodbye

Sometimes I wish
Sometimes I fall in the well
A lock in a safe in a cage in a cell
We can wait out the storm
Or we can stand in the rain
Gonna have to mourn
Or hide from some pain

And if one night
The whole world saw the light
The unknown made itself clear
A familiar sound
Heard from all around
Telling us there's nothing to fear

It weighs heavy on my mind
So heavy on my mind
