corner of 9th, avenue a
postcard arrived in may
knew by the lick of the stamp it would say
you are resilient, we'll be okay

but all the weight of that day
price that we pay
things that just won't go away
and the things that won't stay

sign of divine intervention we found
sign of the times got flipped it around
watch what you wish for
and pay by the pound
if you're in new york
and don't make a sound

but all the weight of this town
is bringing me down
trying to lose what i found
won't just set it down
just set it down

if the streets not on the time
if the world tilts till you fall
if the only words that rhyme
don't mean anything at all
you have to do
is come back home
i'm missing you
come back home
i'll sing for you
this song

it only sounds like
all the weight of this town
is bringing me down
trying to lose what i found
but just set it down
all the weight of this town
it's bringing me down
trying to lose what i found
just set it down
all the weight of this town
is bringing me down
trying to lose what i found
no, just set it down
all the weight of this town
is bringing me down
all the weight of this town
is bringing me down
all the weight of this town
is bringing me down
