Nicole Atkins – Burden lyrics
As I lay me down to sleep
I hear her speak to me
Hello 'Mari, how ya doin'?
I think the storm ran out of rain
The clouds are movin'
I know you're happy
'Cause I can see it
So tell the voice inside ya head to believe it
I talked to God about you
He said he sent you an angel
And look at all that he gave you
You asked for one and you got two
You know I never left you
'Cause every road that leads to heaven's right inside you
So I can say

Hello, my only one,
Just like the mornin' sun
You'll keep on risin'
'Til the sky knows your name
Hello my only one
Remember who you are
No, you're not perfect
But you're not your mistakes

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Oh, the good outweighs the bad
Even on your worst day
Remember how I'd say
Hey hey one day
You'll be the man you always knew you could be
And if you knew how proud I was
You'd never shed a tear
Have a fear, no you wouldn't do that
And though I didn't pick the day to turn the page
I know it's not the end
Every time I see her face
And I hear you say

Hello my only one
Remember who you are
You got the world
'Cause you got love in your hands
And you're still my chosen one
So can you understand?
One day you'll understand

So hear me out, hear me out
I won't go, I won't go
No goodbyes, no goodbyes
Just hello, just hello
And when you cry, I will cry
And when you smile, I will smile
And next time when I look in your eyes
We'll have wings and we'll fly

Hello my only one
Just like the mornin' sun
You'll keep on risin'
'Til the sky knows your name
And you're still my chosen one
Remember who you are
No you're not perfect
But you're not your mistakes

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Tell Nori about me, tell Nori ab-
I just want you to do me a favor
Tell Nori about me, tell Nori about me
Tell Nori about me, tell Nori about me
Tell Nori about me, tell Nori about me
Tell Nori about me, tell Nori about me
Tell Nori about me
