Mavis Staples - Heavy On My Mind Lyrics




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

It weighs heavy on my mind
Oh, so heavy on my mind
It weighs heavy on my mind
Oh, so heavy on my mind

Sometimes I wish
Sometimes I
Locked 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

It weighs heavy on my mind
Oh, so heavy on my mind
It weighs heavy on my mind
Heavy on my mind

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
Heavy, heavy on my mind
So heavy on my mind
