I used to be the kind of guy
I could laugh as well as cry
With a heart feather-soft and summer-warm
 Since you've left me I've been faced 
With emptiness that's been replaced 
With a heart that's hard and heavy as a sack full of stones 

I never thought I'd ever see
The man my mirror is showing me
Lord I must have aged ten years  Since you've been gone
The longest mile you'll ever crawl 
Is the one after you fall
Draggin' around a heart that's heavy as a sack full of stones 

With the world upon my shoulders 
And my feelings on my sleeve  Every time I close my eyes at night 
All I do is watch you leave 
But by far the biggest curse of being left alone 
Is draggin' around a heart that's heavy as a sack full of stones 

Well I tried turning to a bottle 
But the bottle turned on me
I've tried everything
But nothing sets your memory free
I'm serving life here in a prison 
That we once called a home
With a heart that's cold and heavy as a sack full of stones 

With the world upon my shoulders 
And my feelings on my sleeve  Every time I close my eyes at night 
All I do is watch you leave 
But by far the biggest curse of being left alone 
Is draggin' around a heart that's heavy as a sack full of stones 
Yes by far the biggest curse of being left alone 
Is draggin' around a heart that's heavy as a sack full of stones
