Weighing me down

Standard

Ominous trees, their branches cut
Decorate a sky of grey
I could cry out my sorrow, but
No rain, no rain today

This is weighing me down
So hard
So long
This has been weighing me down
Strength so great
Still not enough
This has been weighing me down

My wings are clipped like the trees
Dead in my tracks mid flight
I will pray down on my knees
Can’t win, can’t win this fight

This is weighing me down
So hard
So long
This has been weighing me down
Strength so great
Still not enough
This has been weighing me down

I’m so tired now
But there’s no sleep
Lost in my mind
Where the worries creep

Then darkness lifts time and again
It’s myself I always cheat
The spark is there deep down below
Must turn, must turn defeat

This is weighing me down
So hard
So long
This has been weighing me down
Strength so great
Still not enough
This has been weighing me down
