Heavy as The Earth
 
You gave me life, so I thank you
You gave me these hands to hold myself, but I will hold you
You don't know what I gave to you, I gave you my time
 
I have spent days as home waiting for you
I have spent nights alone, nights alone just searching
You don't know where I found you, and you never will
 
These arms were made to hold you
These legs were built so I could come and find you
All the love, all the love that you gave me
I give back to you, I give it back to you, I give it back
 
How bright was the day, the day that you came and you found me
You picked me up off the ground and the way you spoke it spoke to me
You don't know what you did that day, and you never will
 
These arms were made to hold you
These legs were built so I could come and find you
All the love, all the love that you gave me
I give back to you, I give it back to you, I give it back
 
You were lost, body and mind, the darkest of nights, my could not find the space to trace where you'd been
My eyes, heavy as the Earth we walk on, we lay on, we grow and rely on and I will never lose you again
I saw a shadow appear, cold, alone, frozen with fear. But you didn't even know you were gone
You didn't even know you were gone.
 
These arms were made to hold you
These legs were built so I could come and find you
All the love, all the love that you gave me
I give back to you, I give it back to you, I give it back
