"No Weight" lyrics - MANDOLIN ORANGE

"No Weight"
(Andrew Marlin)

I wanted you once but I need you now
Like a bird flying high, in the winter flies south
And these stones that you've thrown haven't come close
To turning my eyes
They're just rocks in the road

I carry your heart on my shoulders
And it's no cross to bear
It's no ball and chain
It's no weight
It's so easy

We eased down in the water and drifted away
We could hear others calling but not a word they were saying
And these stones that you've thrown, too big for some
Have just rippled the water
And sunk to the bottom
