LYRICS

Linkin Park ft Kiiara “Heavy” Lyrics

I don’t like my mind right now
Stacking up problems that are so unnecessary
Wish that I could slow things down
I wanna let go but there’s comfort in the panic
And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything’s about me
Yeah I drive myself crazy
Cause I can’t escape the gravity

I’m holding on
Why is everything so heavy
Holding on
So much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what’s bringing me down
If I just let go, I’d be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy

You say that I’m paranoid
But I’m pretty sure the world is out to get me
It’s not like I make the choice
To let my mind stay so fucking messy
I know I’m not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning round me just the same
I know I’m not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning round me just the same

I’m holding on
Why is everything so heavy
Holding on
So much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what’s bringing me down
If I just let go, I’d be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy

I know I’m not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning round me just the same
I know I’m not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning round me just the same
And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything’s about me

I’m holding on
Why is everything so heavy
Holding on
So much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what’s bringing me down
If I just let go, I’d be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy

Linkin Park have shared a music video for “Heavy,” the first single from their upcoming album, One More Light. Watch it above, which features American singer Kiiara. Directed by Tim Mattia, the video shows Linkin Park frontman ‎Chester Bennington and Kiiara going to support groups to battle their inner demons.

Instead of a loud and aggressive sound that the band has been known for, they take a turn here with a more relaxed vibe. Electronic beats, sweeping keyboard notes, and drums fuel the track, and Kiiara’s soulful vocal contribution may be the highlight. “Heavy” is an interesting choice to share as the first album single, already garnering strong and mixed reactions from fans in the YouTube comments.

One More Light is scheduled to be released on May 19, 2017. Pick it up on Amazon.
