WEIGHING ME DOWN

 
 

LYRICS

I just wanna let go for a minute 
But the world is weighing me down 

Is it me, am I just jaded and worn 
Beaten down by the storm 
Yeah some people say that these are stranger times 
But they’re starting to feel like a friend of mine 

The constant flash of tragedy with out-of-reach remedy 
Has my heart low and weary 
So I’m spilling liquor and running down the sidewalk 
Anything to drown out the news, drown out the talk 

I just wanna let go for a minute
But the world is weighing me down
I just wanna feel a little higher
But the world is weighing me down

Is anywhere really safe anymore 
I’m getting too scared to take a step out my door 
To a sun that shines over gunshots and lies 
A sun that shines over people losing their lives 

I just wanna let go for a minute
But the world is weighing me down
I just wanna feel a little higher
But the world is weighing me down

I can’t sleep without another heartbeat 
The weight of this world keeps pressing into my chest 
I can’t sleep without another heartbeat 
I need someone to help me catch my breath 

I just wanna let go for a minute 
But the world is weighing me down 
I just wanna feel a little higher 
But the world is weighing me down
