Blessed burden, my heart's a golden weight.
When she's beating, my eyes, they won't see straight.
There's blood on the steps where my feet have lingered too long.
My heart's a golden weight, and I ain't that strong.
Rolling River, if you ever settle down
won't you come and see me, I'll be hiding underground
for a thousand lives of the tallest, coldest trees.
Oh, River, come keep me company.
No one to share my drink with
I'll close the blinds and tear my heart in two
like this song I just wrote for you.
Blessed burden, the sun keeps tearing through
my every notion of ever meeting you.
So beat me, burn me, drag me cross the floor.
Then blessed heart, don't you burden me no more.
