    Welcome to the forums.

    I have never met this. What is the full context for it?

    If you are Dutch, then you should understand it.
    "het is ei dik en zwaar rollen"

    Hi Susiedgqq,
    here goes the song:

    "If you're the only one
    Will I ever be enough?
    Hail hail the lucky ones
    I refer to those in love

    Swore I'd love till the day I die
    And beyond
    Are we going to the same place?
    If so, can I come?
    It's egg rolling thick and heavy
    The past we carry
    I could be new
    You underestimate me"

    Hi Banderas,
    Thanks for your response
    Indeed, thatís the song! But I have to say that I never heard the expression in Dutch either (maybe because Iím not Dutch but Flemish).
    But could it mean Ď it has become a burden, or a boring routineí? Or am I on the wrong track?

    Groetjes

    It could mean anything. We should ask Pearl Jam. But seriously, the lyrics is about two people in a relationship struggling to hold it together. My interpretation of "It's egg rolling thick and heavy" is:
    it (our relationship) is very difficult because "she" expects too much from "him". Your guess is right then: it is a burden, indeed!
    Regards
