Burden

from by Gregory Hoskins

lyrics

In the wilderness of your childhood
You seemed to have picked up a heavy rock
You were a slow moving target anyhow
No cock of the walk

You carried that stone everywhere
From the river to the town
Across the valley to the mountains
Without the smarts to put it down

I know
You were born free
And you'll be free again

When you lay it down
Lay it down, lay it down
When you lay your burden down
You'll be free when you lay your burden down.

Every step is laboured,
Every dance looks awkward
Under the weight of what you've been carrying
It's impossible to believe
In joy, or love,
That's yours for the making
Or a harbour to rest in
For the work you're undertaking

I know
You were born free
And you'll be free again

When you lay it down
Lay it down, lay it down
When you lay your burden down
You'll be free when you lay your burden down.
