A Heavy Heart

This song was created for Game of Bands round 177 : "The Afterlife"

Lyrics:

Always lived by the edge of the knife
Too hard and too fast for the honest life
Always promising someday I'd change
After one more big score, it would all be repaid

Now it looks live I've run out of time
As death stares me down with those cruel jackal eyes
At the mercy of judgement divine
With my heart on the scale and my soul on the line

I've laid my whole life on the scale
It's getting hard to breathe
Every wrong move, every mistake
Is weighing down on me

Always lived by the edge of the law
Won't lie and tell you I've never done no wrong
But there's so much I've wanted to do
I'm hoping my better intentions shine through

Watch the feather and heart on the scale
Every right and wrong pushing opposite ways
And the creature that's waiting beneath
With hungry eyes and sharp crocodile teeth

I've laid my whole life on the scale
It's getting harder to breathe
Every wrong move, every mistake
Is weighing down on me
[Exit]
