Kenny Wayne Shepherd – Burdens lyrics

Something's got me down again,
I feel the walls closing in,
If you could only read my mind tell me what would you find?
Show me where it all began.
Could you help me understand?
And the toll it's taking,
Every day I'm aching.

Living in danger,
I'm a hazard to myself.
Why can't these problems belong to someone else?
I need an angel to protect me from myself,
And take these burdens off my mind.

I wish I knew the words to say,
To make it all go away.
Even when it's plain to see,
It's hard to believe.
Cuz when you're hearts been broken,
All you're hope's been stolen.


I'm running on faith,
I really don't know,
If it's too late,
Or which way to go,
It's a matter of time,
Will I ever know?
Oh, before I lose control

Cuz when you're hearts been broken,
All you're hope's been stolen.

Off my mind
