Maybe your daddy never held you like he should
Maybe your mama just held on the best she could
Every soul has a secret, give it away or keep it
But yesterday's gone, so tell me why

You carry the weight, the weight of the world
It's breakin' you down, on your back like a boulder
Before it's too late, get rid of it girl, get it off of your shoulder
I know you've been used but you gotta lose the weight of the world

Maybe, I haven't always been there just for you
Maybe, I try but then I've got my own life too
Every heart has a hunger, I'm not gettin' any younger
And I've got all the crosses I can bear

Don't gimme the weight, the weight of the world
It's breakin' me down, on my back like a boulder
Before it's too late, get rid of it girl, get it off of my shoulder
You know I've been used and I gotta lose the weight of the world

It all comes down to who you crucify
You either kiss the future or the past goodbye
We could fly so high

But we carry the weight, the weight of the world
It's breakin' us down, on our backs like a boulder
Before it's too late, get rid of it girl, get it off of our shoulders
You know we've been used and we gotta lose the weight of the world

It's bringin' us down and the night's growin' colder
Just blame it on fate, that was yesterday girl
And we're just growin' older

You know we've been used and we gotta to lose the weight of the world
The weight of the world, the weight of the world
