Beth Hart - Weight Of The World lyrics

Daddy's blowing leaves around the lawn
He's laughing and joking and humming funny songs
He's saying you gotta stand for something child
And his heart is wide open when he looks me in the eyes
And he says
When the weight of the world is on your shoulder
The rope's getting thin run for the hills lay down in the water
But I just wanna come home (home home home)
Where I started from (home home home)
Before the weight of the world turns my heart to stone

Mama is holding tomatoes in the yard
And her hair is all golden and so is a superstar
She stand and believes you gotta find your own way
She keeps saying don't worry we love you anyway
And she says
If you ever feel like you don't matter you best stay good enough
Run for the hills lay down in the water
But I just wanna come home (home home home)
Where I started from home (home home home)
Before the weight of the world turns my heart to stone

I was so lucky as anyone could ever be
And my love is longer and deeper than the sea
No I never said it and hope you will forgive
Cause I thank you both for showing me how to live
If the weight of the world should leave you tired
Abandoned and starved I will be there I am your daughter

I'm coming home home home home
I'm coming home home home home
Yeah I'm coming home (Before the weight of the world, Before the weight of the world)
Yeah I'm coming home (Before the weight of the world, Before the weight of the world)
oooh
Yeah I'm coming home (Before the weight of the world, Before the weight of the world)
Yeah I'm coming home (Before the weight of the world, Before the weight of the world)
oooh
I'm coming home
Yeah I'm coming home
