Heavy Boots


Still decompressing from the tour. Getting our set all ready for the Stone Pony show the night before Thanksgiving. HALLA! Anyways, figured I'd start dropping some lyrics of some of the new songs to ya'll. This one's called "Heavy Boots"

The boots you wear are heavy
Rest now, i'll wear them for a while
And as you lie there sleeping
I'll walk down and retrace every mile

All the lines around your eyes
Show the battles deep inside you

They are no match for me
They are no match for me
They are no match for me

And what I wouldnt do, to wear you're heavy boots
To wear you're heavy boots
To wear You're heavy boots
La da da da dum

The sea is wide and angry
Its merciless and waits for you to drown
Your arms are tired from swimming
The violence is written on your brow

I will take away the hurtful words
And swallow them with courage
They are no match for me
They are no match for me
They are no match for me

And what I wouldnt do, to wear you're heavy boots
To wear you're heavy boots
To wear You're heavy boots
La da da da dum

The warriors are waiting
For you outside on the street
And though you're only waking
Rush now, you'll never miss a beat

All the hungry virgin eyes
With the scorpions in their smiles
When their greedy fingers rise
They are no match for me!
They are no match for me!
They are no match for me!

Heavy Boots: powerfully awesome lyrics and song. Might beat out The Tower as my favorite new song so far.

Off topic:
Any chance you can start an auction or something similar for one of those hand screened posters at the 'Pony show for those who can't make it? Please...?! :)

One of my fave new tunes of yours.

I loved the version of it you did at 92Y Tribeca on Friday night. Very moving and powerful!

This is a very interesting post, and the comments are also fantastic to read. I’ll have to have a little re-think about my own contact form on our new website, as this poses some interesting questions!

I am looking forward to have this course and will let you know if I can find a job working at home here in Canada. I wish I can because I am jobless for more than 3 years now. Finding a job here in Canada is hard especially if your diploma was earned outside Canada because the standard of education is different. I am hoping to get this study course soon and land a job.

SOOOO happy you are posting your lyrics!! I just sat here and tried to figure them out on my own, when I should have visited the blog first! DOH!

LOVED your set at City Winery last night. The presence of Dan Chen was an extra special treat, and the Nic Rad multimedia show was the icing on the cake. Thank you for being you and sharing your gifts with all of us.

Typo on "you're" - should be "your." You should do a video on this that shows a young girl wearing her daddy's boots while he's sleeping. Then later shows the young woman she's grown into at her father's funeral and wanting to wear those heavy boots one more time. Then the woman with her husband and his heavy boots.
