Burden

 

Loney men built lonely cities

She worked hard until she was beautiful still he

Noticed nothing unusual this was his way 

He's gonna stay devoted to the project

And she's committed herself to not caring anymore

Her heart wasn't sore she was sure she had cured

The burden of loving someone may be better than loving no one

She's looking up her mind says maybe

Or else she's fucking crazy it's slavery

To begin it again, pick it up from the end

Save the pieces that never gave never bend

Still the whole time there's this light

It won't let her say goodnight

Some white beam of hope in the sky

Has her questioning why

Has her constantly trying and lying inside

Has her hiding away like some potential bride 

Who keeps turning her back like the turn of the tide

 

The burden of loving someone may be better than loving no one

The burden of loving someone may be better than loving no one

 

When you feel what you're feeling with all of your might 

You write down to tell and sing like hell in the night

'Bout the man on your mind when you turn out the light

Who ignited the room when invited inside

Who now is long gone and despite how forthright 

Was the song you played just to show how uptight

And embarrassed he made you your loves stay strong

Convincing words appear backwards and wrong

It just doesn't make sense to want to belong

With a guy who made you all tense and withdrawn 

It shows you in the corner where the walls shadows

Silhouette the one you wont let go who hasn't arrived yet

And he wont you know you can just forget about him though

 

The burden of loving someone may be better than loving no one

The burden of loving someone may be better than loving no one

 

I ain't so sure about that its not matter of fact

If the world fell in half are you for it adoring to 

Kick back relax and laugh and deplore

Cursing all of the fools who exist to implore

Writing books cursing morons who tore what 

They swore gave them reasons to be

 

I love him.

He loves me.

 

And the burden of loving someone may be better than loving no one

The burden of loving someone may be better
