Weightless (5:42)

Some nights he’s weightless
He has to travel
His mouth is gravel
And there’s an empty feeling
Within his heart

Eye on the fuel gauge
Westchester throughway
That triple octane won’t contain the empty feeling
In William’s heart

Same old insecurity
Strap him into his car seat
And a sump started leaking
All over new jersey
Gas stations everywhere
Not one drop to fill me

Big hunk of carrot cake, blueberry milkshake
Fistful of Coldrex
Won’t fix the empty feeling in Lizzy’s heart

So she flips on the TV
Takes in a movie
But all those memories won’t erase the empty feeling
From in her heart

Then a dog woke inside of her
To watch the explosion
And a pipe started leaking
She bent to the basin
Fruit juice everywhere
Not one drop to fill me

(You could be the one)
She whispered
(Love is all you’ve ever wanted
All you’ll ever need)

End of our summer
Your body weightless
In condensation my heart learned to swim
