Who put the weight of the world on my shoulders?
Who put the lies in the truth that you sold us?
Lost behind a silver screen
Are all the things you could've been to us

So don't try and fuck up my head with your problems
I'm just tryna' fix up my bed in the doldrums
Lost behind a silver screen
Are all the things you could've been in love and life

So help me out my friend
My head just started to hurt
I don't pretend
I've got all of the time in the world
So now she's gone
All alone in her own universe
I still won't go
'Till I hold you within my world

So help me out my friend
My head just started to hurt
I won't pretend
I've got all of the time in the world
So now she's gone
All alone in her own universe
But I'll still walk on
'Till I hold you within my world

Who put the weight of the world on my shoulders?
Who put the lies in the truth that you sold us?

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me. I think of it in terms of my status with my girlfriend: she's in university while I'm taking the year off to work, so I rarely see her, and I feel that my inability to try and progress in our relationship places the weight of the world on my shoulders.
