Jennifer Hudson – Burden Down lyrics
I'm a river, I keep running on
I'm a pillar you got used to leaning on
Underneath it, there's a person
I'm a woman and I'm hurting
'Cause I feel like I'm holding up the world

When I lay this burden down
Who's gonna take it up for me
When you run me in the ground
That's the day you're gonna see
For all I've done I'm alone
Just for a moment can I not be strong
So how 'bout now oh can I lay
This burden down

I deliver each and every time
I'm a giver, I don't think about what's mine
You keep asking, you keep taking
And there's no reciprocation
I shouldn't have to do this by myself

When I lay this burden down
Who's gonna take it up for me
When you run me in the ground
That's the day you'll gonna see
For all I've done I'm alone
Just for a moment could I not be strong
How 'bout now, can I lay
This burden down

I'm a river, I keep running on
I'm a pillar, you're used to leaning on
Just this once, oh just this once

Can I lay this burden down
Can you take it up for me
When you run
When you run me in the ground
That's the day you're gonna see
Now all I've done I'm alone
Just for a moment could I not be strong
Wish I knew how, oh, to lay
This burden down
