Too many words that I can’t say.
Too great a debt that I don’t have the means to pay.
And all these things create the weight.
It’s the weight of the world

Let me see you one last time, and say goodbye before I go.
‘Cause the weight of the world is too much to hold.
Let me love you ‘til it’s time, it’s time for me to go
‘Til the weight of the world brings me home.

And all this time that I waste
It doesn’t compare, and it doesn’t replace
All the good and the bad that was once in my life is gone, and in its’ place
is the weight of the world

I was holding on to hope, you were holding out.
I wrote a couple thousand notes, but it’s over now.
And I was trying to make it work but you were getting out
saying that you wanna move on without a shred of doubt.
And it’s September now
Maybe you’ll remember how perfect things felt for so long before it headed south.
Was it something that wrong that I could never fix?
Wish I never thought you’d be the one to find forever with
