lyrics

Weight of the World

It was easier when we were young
And the world revolved around ourselves
Around our dreams
I remember well the setting sun
And the ocean’s waves
Swimming out, after a long day

But now - we feel the weight of the world now
We feel the urgency
I thought I could stay fixed in one place
But that’s not enough in these days

It was easier when word spread
Over days not seconds
Must disconnect from time to time
I remember well that other world
Where we could hide
So unaware of the collective sigh

But now - we feel the weight of the world now
We feel the urgency
I thought I could stay fixed in one place
But that’s not enough in these days

Give me strength to be me now
Give me courage to facilitate
Give me language to be heard
Give me challenges that I can face
I will give all of myself
I will give to our futures
I will give and receive love
I will and I’ll give and I’ll give

Now - we feel the weight of the world now
We feel the urgency
I thought I could stay fixed in one place
But that’s not enough in these days

Give me strength to be me now
Give me courage to facilitate
Give me language to be heard
Give me challenges that I can face
I will give all of myself
I will give to our futures
I will give and receive love
I will and I’ll give and I’ll give
