"The Weight" as written by and Robbie Robertson....
We danced for the rain All covered
In silver laughter and gold The hurricane
Swept in and trees were made into forts
Around the yard I can't be withdrawn From
A little ember that burned in me once ago
I can't seem to find it in my jaded wounded
Trapeze of living life

But the little you show me Has kept me wondering
If I was set on the right path Or did I make a big
Mistake so long ago

[Chorus]
Cause all I can feel is..All I can feel is more weight than
Ever before All I can feel is.. All I can feel is blistering
On my bed All I can feel is..All I can feel is more
Weight than ever before All I can feel is..

For years, we were bathed Drowned in all this dirt
That ruins our lives And one day we step up and we
Shake it off with a smile Please work this out Someone
Please tell me who is responsible For letting us grow up
In this hive of bastards and lies and enemies

And the little you've showed me Has rendered me away
And the scars that you gave me Are still repeating, slamming
On my door

But what I can feel is this better day
Woke up to sounds of gulls on the bay
I've gotta make use of this beauty today
'cause it could drag me down..The weight
Could drag me down back to where I began

[chorus]

Can't you see this is where we all began?
