A WEIGHT UPON MY HEAD

When I look upon the stars high in the sky
and I realise, all of them must die
there's the afterglow of some already dead
and the thought of that puts a weight upon my head

When I think of all the time that passed me by
while I waited for my catcher in the rye
by good intentions I was so misled
and the thought of that puts a weight upon my head

Lift the weight from off my shoulders
roll away this big old stone
let me sleep a dreamless sleep tonight
let me be
leave me alone
please let numbness fall upon me
strike me deaf and strike me blind
lift the weight from off my shoulders
for just one night

When I look upon my fathers pale, white face
where the sparkle in his eyes now lost in haze
there are many thing I should have left unsaid
and the thought of that puts a weight upon my head

Lift the weight from off my shoulders
roll away this big old stone
let me sleep a dreamless sleep tonight
let me be
leave me alone
please let numbness fall upon me
strike me deaf and strike me blind
lift the weight from off my shoulders
for just one night

When I look upon my newborn sound asleep
and I realise she's not mine to keep
she will live her life long after I am dead
and the thought of that puts a weight upon my head

Lift the weight from off my shoulders
strike me deaf and strike me blind
lift the weight from off my shoulders
for just one night

...sounds like a heartfelt prayer deserving an answer to me. -M-
