"Let Love Not Weigh Me Down" as written by and Ed Harcourt....
Let love not weigh me down
Let the cursed air be clean
When you've lost faith in the human race
Let love not weigh me down

Let love not cause me pain
Let it all seem like a dream
And I won't regret want I can't forget
Let love not cause you pain

So let your beauty blind my vision
Let it move me 'til I die
And the seeds of despair won't be fruits that I bear
Let the beauty blind my vision

So shed all the tears that you want
Run from the places you haunt
If you think you're lost
Or just double-crossed
Don't try to make sense of it all
Let the music and words take you back
To the times when your heart wasn't cracked
We won't be suffering with drugs and bad medicine
We'll drink 'til the curtain calls

Let love not weigh me down
Let its weakness be my guide
And all this intensity makes perfect sense to me
Let love not weigh you down

So shed all the tears that you want
Run from the places you haunt
If you think you're lost
Or just double-crossed
Don't try to make sense of it all
Let the music and words take you back
To the times when your heart wasn't cracked
We won't be suffering with drugs and bad medicine
We'll drink 'til the curtain calls

We'll drink 'til the curtain calls

    General CommentThis song is such genius. It's sexy and beautifully intimate (his girlfriend is the violinist, if I'm not mistaken, which could explain something).

    General CommentThis is my favorite Harcourt song. I don't think the meaning's hidden too much, but other people who've listened to the song get the impression he's saying not to fall in love. It's not so much that, I think, as that he's saying- let not the bad experiences you've had in the past become a burden or make you cynical.
