Track Name: The Weight
There are bags that need unpacking
There are things I need to let go
It is quite time to lighten the load
Lighten the load

Yes, there are bags that need unpacking
Lines to be un-blurred
Because heavier than any galaxy
Is the weight of stories heard


CHORUS 1
And it’s not even that,
That’s not fully true.
It’s the weight of believing them
That cripples and burdens you.
And it’s not even that,
That’s not fully true.
It’s the weight of believing them
That cripples and burdens you.


The stories I refer to are the
Mortar between the bricks
The facts are facts
But what makes them stick?

A child’s mind reasons life’s whys and how’s alone
Blaming herself, shaming herself become
Pockets full of stones.

CHORUS 2:
And it’s just that.
That is more true:
The weight of believing them
Burdens and cripples you.
And it’s just that.
It’s what more true:
The weight of believing them
Burdens and cripples you.




She gets older, yet it may take years and decades to see
She can empty her pockets and
Choose to be free.

No, it’s not that easy, because
shame burns so deep
The fire of that scarlet letter won’t
Let you sleep, won’t let you sleep!

CHORUS 1
And it’s not even that,
That’s not fully true.
It’s the weight of believing them
That cripples and burdens you.
And it’s not even that,
That’s not fully true.
It’s the weight of believing them
That cripples and burdens you.


There are bags that need unpacking
Things I need to let go of
Now is the time to lighten the load.
Lighten the load.

If letting go means simply letting it be,
Then I put down any burden and feel myself free.
Sleepless eyes wide open to all I have been
Soft palms wide open, I inhabit my own skin.


CHORUS 3
I am older now, a new young crone.
I unblur the lines and choose
What is my own.
I am older now, a new young crone.
I unblur the lines and choose
What is my own.
