I used to carry the weight of the world on my back
I never trusted my friends or my girl, can you imagine that?
I used to shuffle my feet when I walked I hung my head down low
Kept to myself all my private thoughts but when I met you girl

I dropped the weight of the world, weight of the world
I dropped the weight of the world, weight of the world

I knew some people used to dance all night but not me
I never knew if it was wrong or right to be so free
I used to close my eyes and try to hide from the light of love
Spent all my time with the darkness inside but when I met you girl

I dropped the weight of the world, weight of the world
I dropped the weight of the world, weight of the world

I was alone for all of my life
I was alone for all of my life
I was alone for all of my life
I was alone for all of my life
Until you came my way

I dropped the weight of the world, weight of the world
Weight of the world, I dropped the weight of the world
Weight of the world, weight of the world
I dropped the weight of the world, weight of the world
