the weight of the world…

I had this line in my head about knowing that sometimes the right choices make us cry…and then this really very talented friend of mine, that Steve Mason (who has graciously agreed to produce this project) was saying this thing about the weight of the world being comforting….
and so these lyrics were born.

I’m not sure if this one will make it to The Glass Factory but I’m sure they’ll show up somewheres. We’ve a few thoughts on the melody if it makes the cut for this project. Thought I’d give you a preview on the lyrics to date, though…

Weight

when the
weight of the world
is a comforting thing
hold it all close
keeping your grip tighter still

I think
sometimes the right choice
just might make you cry
take it all in
and then watch it spill from your eyes

If we shoulder it well
if we just pass it round
I will carry the hope
you can carry the sound
if we shoulder it well
it’ll be well enough
to carry the weight
the weight of the world
the weight of the world

when the
weight of the words
are a comforting piece
hold them all close
keeping your grip on the truth

I think
sometimes the right choice
will just make you cry
take it all in
and watch as it spills from your eyes.

If we shoulder it well
if we pass it around
You can carry the hope
I can carry the sound
If we shoulder it well
it’ll be well enough
to carry the weight
the weight of the world
the weight of the world
