Weight of the World

 

Weight of the World
~music and lyrics by Skye Pixton

Baby...

You tell me all your stories
of your past defeats and glories
Baby, I... want to know what's goin' down now
Those things have long since happened
Your feelings long since stagnant
Your walls just ain't comin' down

So baby with you
I get no relief
Seems like I'm carryin' the
Weight of the world in my hands
Baby with you
I get no relief
Carryin' the weight of the world in my hands.

You're only talkin' small
If you're talkin' at all
Baby can't you see... I wanna go much deeper
Like what is in your heart?
Why can't I be a part
of what is goin' on? Cuz

So baby with you
I get no relief
Seems like I'm carryin' the
Weight of the world in my hands
Baby with you
I get no relief
Carryin' the weight of the world in my hands.

I... don't know if I believe in
The things that you been sayin'
‘bout how you feel about me, it just don't add up
an' I think that somewhere
Deep down and within there
Yer just a little bit scared

So baby with you
I get no relief
Seems like I'm carryin' the
Weight of the world in my hands
Baby with you
I get no relief
Carryin' the weight of the world in my hands.

How do you think it makes me feel
when you're talkin' to me and you can't be real
honey what do you think I'm supposed to do
if I cannot get into you
and if you cannot come to me
about the things you feel and need
then how do you think I could come to you
if I need a man to pull me through baby you baby don't know what you do baby

Baby with you
I get no relief
Seems like I'm carryin' the
Weight of the world in my hands
Baby with you
I get no relief
Carryin' the weight of the world in my hands
