"Weight of the World" as written by Sean C. Kelly, Andrew David Sheldon, Alexander Laughlin and George Pope Iv Macnichol....
With my hands
I will build you
castles in the sand
A promise of a land
that it will keep you
from the weight of the world

They all ran away
on our horses
leaving nothing to be found
they dug our dreams up from the ground
and took our forces
from the weight of the world
from the weight of the world

Was life too heavy
will you be free
you may never get older
it no longer hangs over
so let go of
the weight of the world
the weight of the world

Can I please have one more dance with you
goodbye all I've loved and held and knew

With my hands
I will build you
castles in the sand
and a promise of a land
that it will keep you
from the weight of the world

from the weight of the world
from the weight of the world
so far away
from the weight of the world
so far away

    General CommentI believe I read once this was written for Kurt Cobain after he committed suicide. Great song. A real heartbreaker.
