lyrics

(Chorus)
This dirt is so heavy when you cry
It all turns to mud when you cry
It all turns to mud
This mud is too heavy

Rest in peace
That's for the old
Not the young
Open my diary
My dreams are hung
Suspended in ink
My life was little
Lay me down to sleep
Cartoons on pillows
I'm not grandma on the porch
Talking about the past
I’m the young girl who listens
An hour before class
Standing in the mirror
My future on the glass
Why did my hopes fall
Who knocked them off the wall
You cut your fingers
Trying to hold it together
Holding down my dreams
The pen’s light as a feather
I heard you say it's not getting better
That it's always raining
And the pain is getting wetter

(Chorus)
This dirt is so heavy when you cry
It all turns to mud when you cry
It all turns to mud
This mud is too heavy

We were great siblings
We didn't always get along
But not like cats and dogs
Like puppies and kittens
You're wishing me back
I've heard your cries
But my hands are tied
By a pink ribbon
I can't leave you like this
You can fight for my dreams
But is there peace in that fist
Remember to shine
I don't want to be forgotten
But at what cost to your mind
We're the sun and the moon
You and I
The biggest prettiest thing in the sky
Be kind to mother
The one you call mom
I wish I could be there
I scream with more fire than a bomb
It's so hot down here
Sweaty palms
Holding tight what you gave me
Thank you for this flower
This pen
That hung and that kiss
My favorite things in the earth
Despite the pain it brings
We all want to be missed
But now's the time sis
The living comes first

(Chorus)
This dirt is so heavy when you cry
It all turns to mud when you cry
It all turns to mud
This mud is too heavy
