The Literal Heart

I could be so much stronger than I am right now
With broader shoulders and a sturdy frame.

But that would cost me time and change
That I might not be willing to make.


It's gonna take every drop
Of young blood I've got
So hold on and stop
And settle down.

I want to sit still and empty.
I want to learn the hollow route.

A lonely piece of mountain.
I want to sit and shut my mouth.
But I'll be damned, I'd rather sleep.
The gardens soft, my skin is weak.

It's gonna take every drop
Of young blood I've got,
So hold on and stop and settle down.
Settle down.
Settle down.

Settle down.
