"The Weight Of The World" as written by Alana Davis and Ed Tuton....
Each day, I say that today won?t be like yesterday
But it stays this way
Today and everyday
I pray
That today will feel a different way
But it stays this way

The weight of the world has fallen
And the rubble is at my feet
The voice of a girl is calling
I can hear her
But she?s buried so deep
All of my truths are broken
They?re fragments of love and hate
The words that remain are a token
Of honesty that came too late

Here
In the midst of madness
Washed up by the tides of war
Try to resist this sadness
But the pressure is hard to endure

Yet we begin again
Still playing our games
And everyone?s innocent
Just victims of change

Wearing a mask of freedom
And hiding behind a smile
Playing the role of a leader
Pretending for just a while
Everything seems an illusion
Echoing around my brain
Trapped in a vast seclusion
Where the images fall like rain

And we begin again
Still playing our games
And everyone?s innocent
Just victims of change
Living in sin again
With no one to blame
And everyone?s innocent
Just victims of change

Each day, I say that today won?t be like yesterday
But it stays this way
Today and everyday
I pray
That today will feel a different way
But it stays this way

    My InterpretationWow no comments on this song? This song is absolutely beautiful. The lyrics are deep so I am not 100% sure, but I will take a stab at a basic interpretation.

    I think it is about a girl who built her life on the foundation of someone's promises, and that someone ended up not being true to those promises, which shattered this girl's whole world. She is trapped under the rubble of her broken and devastated life. She can't move on or escape the sadness, and maybe also some financial burdens that she accepted based on the promises/lies of the person that had deceived her.

    Each day she prays that her situation will change, that the person will come through on their promises. She has to hide behind a facade that everything is fine when deep down inside she is hurting so bad.

    She is sad and angry but there is nobody around her that she can blame. She hopes that the situation won't repeat itself, but nothing changes as people continually lie.
