Thrice – The Weight lyrics

There’s many who’ll tell you they’ll give you their
Love,
But when they say "give" they mean "take".
They hang ‘round just like vultures 'til push comes to
Shove
And take flight when the earth starts to shake.

Someone may say that they’ll always be true
Then slip out the door ‘fore the dawn,
But I won’t leave you hanging on.

Another may stay 'til they find someone new
Then before you know they’ll be gone,
But I won’t leave you hanging on.

No, I won’t won't be that someone.

And come what may, I won’t abandon you or leave you
Behind,
Because love is a loyalty sworn, not a burning for a
Moment.
Come what may, I will be standing right here by your
Side,
I won’t run away, though the storm’s getting worse and
There’s no end in sight.

Some talk of destiny, others of fate,
But soon they’ll be saying goodbye,
But I won’t leave you high and dry.

'Cause a ring don’t mean nothing if you can’t haul the
Weight
And some of them won’t even try,
But I won’t leave you high and dry.

I won’t leave you wondering why.

And come what may, I won’t abandon you or leave you
Behind,
Because love is a loyalty sworn, not a burning for a
Moment.
Come what may, I will be standing right here by your
Side,
I won’t run away, though the storm’s getting worse and
There’s no end in sight.

And storms will surely come,
But true love is a choice you must make and you are the
One.
That I have set my heart to choose
As long as I live, I swear I’ll see this through.

Come what may, I won’t abandon you or leave you behind,
Because love is a loyalty sworn, not a burning for a
Moment.
Come what may, I will be standing right here by your
Side,
I won’t run away, though the storm’s getting worse and
I see no end.

Come what may, I won’t abandon you or leave you behind,
Because love is a loyalty sworn, not a burning for a
Moment.
Come what may, I will be standing right here by your
Side,
I won’t run away, though the storm’s getting worse and
There’s no end in sight.
