Weight Of The World Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Hey little wise man
You got the sweetest notion
The sweetest thing

Just once in a lifetime
You need a helping hand
A helping hand

You keep it wrapped up inside
It's like a lethal potion
Gonna find it soul destroying

Don't take it any further now, baby
Won't lead you anywhere
It's pushing and a hurting you, baby
I'll say a little prayer

No other wise man
Could take the hurt like you do
The pain like you

Putting on a brave face
But it gets to you somehow
Gets through somehow

You hold your head in your hands
And the weight of the world on your shoulders
Come and pour your heart out to me

Don't take it any further now, baby
Won't lead you anywhere
It's pushing and a hurting you, baby
I'll say a little prayer

You keep it wrapped up inside
It's like a lethal potion
Gonna find it soul destroying

Don't take it any further now, baby
Won't lead you anywhere
It's pushing and a hurting you, baby
I'll say a little prayer
...
