"Weight Of The World" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
And what about the times you did your best
To assuage my troubled soul
What happened to me
What happened to you
What was it that you said would see us through
I want to know how to feel something real
And I will try no more to run
All this pressure getting closer
And it seems like I've been here before

Time on my hands
Weight of the world
Laid bare my soul
As I lose control

Run away
You can retrace those steps and find your way once more
I'll wait
Believe in yourself as the cruel world closes in
Take my hand
I'll be a friend for you this weight you bare alone
One day
The light I know will illuminate your heart

    General CommentI love the line " one day the light i know will illuminate your heart".

    There's two vioces on this song. seems as though theyre a couple and the one has some issues that the other is helping him to sort out. but with sorting comes the opening of the wounds again and fear fear causes people to run away.
    But she tells him to retrace his steps and find his way shes gonna be wating here for him. he wont have to bear this weight alone. together their stronger than if apart.

    General CommentI cant get enough of this song. Its really helping me get over some bullshit girlfriend stuff Im dealing with right now. I think you hit the nail on the head with this one djloki. I like the "believe in yourself as the cruel world closes in"
