Zach Bryan – Heavy Eyes Lyrics

Zach Bryan – Heavy Eyes Lyrics

Remember when David dashed
A twelve pack
Of Budweiser heavy for the road
Two kids in the back
Drunk off their ass
Screaming in an old Bronco

And I recall what she said
That she wanted me dead
But there ain’t no grave deep enough
Remember all the nights we had
You said it ain’t so bad
Keep those heavy eyes looking up

Remember when Mary brought
Her own Jane
Lucas thought he was gonna die
The stars started falling out
Of a night cloud
From a clear Midwestern sky

I recall what she said
Screaming that the sky is red
Burning to a younger man’s mind
Remember all the days we had
I’d say it ain’t so bad
Keep those heavy eyes soft and kind

Oh when I’m old
I will recall
All the nights we spent outlaws
It’s getting cold
But that sun is cresting
And heavy eyes ain’t born for resting

Who’s gonna drive us home
The boys and me
Are walking staggered vision blurred
One thing you’ll come to know
The boys back home
Live for things like dead man’s curve

I recall what he said
He’d rather be gone and dead
Than livin’ like those sad folks in town
I can’t take this soul with me
If I go I’m goin’ quickly
Keep those heavy eyes free and proud

Oh when I’m old
I will recall
All the nights we spent outlaws
It’s getting cold
But that sun is creating
And heavy eyes ain’t born for resting

Oh when I’m old
I will recall
All the nights we spent outlaws
It’s getting cold
But the sun in cresting
And heavy eyes ain’t born for resting
