I Was Made To Carry Heavy Things
Song A Day 1457

D A D G
the iron in my blood is pushing on my veins
D A Bm
the red blood cells are in crisis
my heart is exploding deep within my chest
Aphrodite is making out with Isis
G
The phases of the moon
F#
And your words make me swoon
Bm A G
I find myself open to understanding
I ask for what I want
I ask clearly and without shame
I ask with no hint of strategizing

my body is made to carry great weight that's put upon it
and this i offer freely without a thought
towards any recompense i do it because i can
it reminds me of what i'm and what i'm not
And the quiet in my mind
is often not the kind
of thing that i can hang on to for long
when i'm lifting heavy things
my body bends and sings
and my mind is empty and just as strong

so i'll let it go, all illusion of control
i won't try to hear what i want tah
i will listen and i will speak
from the iron inside of me
and the red blood cells that hold the fire
And as crisis turns to calm
i'm sailing soft upon
a wish made deliberate and wholehearted
and each part of me will take
turns in each other's wake
like geese flown south newly departed
