about

This song is dedicated to a special person who died. Sometimes gone people leave us the weight they used to carry for us, so it becomes our turn to carry that burden.

lyrics

Awake, and yet I’m in tears
This weight, the one that I feel on my
Spine, here’s what it takes to be
You, and it will last forever…

Now that I bleed, now that I see
The fire inside, the fire inside me
Now that I bleed, now that I feel
You’re still alive, growing your seed in me
Hold me, heal me
Come save me,
Save me again.

AS I LOOK AT THE PAST
AND TRY TO
KEEP ALL THE MEMORIES WE HAD
I REALIZE I’VE LOST
MU CH MORE T HAN
S O MEO NE I CARE THE MOST

BUT THE DA RKER THE SKY
THE BRIG HTER THE STARS
THE DEEPER THE GRIEF
THE CLOSER IS GOD m

BUT NO ONE EVER TOLD ME THAT GRIEF IS LIKE FEAR
YOU’RE NOT AFRAID BUT THE FEELING IS NEAR
LOOKING FOR SOMEONE ISN’T HERE ANYMORE
AND KNOWING YOU’LL FACE THIS WORLD ALL ALONE
BUT I
TAKE
THIS WEIGHT
WITH ME
NOT AS A BURDEN
NOT AS A STRAIN
I’LL TRY TO USE IT
TO BRIGHTEN MY WAY

In the haze, with my ghosts
All I have is such a lie
In the end, only you
Carried all the weight for us

IN SORROW WE MUST GO
BUT NOT IN DESPAIR
WE A LL LIVE WITH OUR LOSSES
WE DON'T WANT TO, BUT WE CAN
