This Weight - Song Lyrics

This Weight - Copyright 2006 Charles Sjolander

This Weight

Written 1991

Verse 1:
this weight I carry is full of old memories
I can't get rid of
I seem to keep them as if they were treasures
of unknown purpose
feather they fall and leaden they stay

Refrain:
this weight the world on my shoulders
this weight holding me down
this weight blocking my vision
it's time I put the weight down

Verse 2:
I hold my ballast inside like a lover
in case I forget it
I look with blinders
so I won't have to see it
though it fills my vision
blocking the pain I block away life

Refrain.

Verse 3:
I keep on pushing just like moving mountains
but my feet keep slipping
struggle is endless unless I wake up
I may push forever
better we are if ever we play

Refrain.

It's time I put the weight down
