Weighted Down Blues (Rachel Perry - Lafayette, LA)


Who's that face outside my window,
Thought that you was dead and gone.
Why's your face outside my window,
I thought that you was dead and gone.
Yeah I thought I'd left you back there,
                                    but I
Feel you hangin' on.


Seen so many folks slide under,
Seen 'em slip on further away.
Watched too many folks slide under
Yes I watched them all slip away.
By the time I saw them slippin',
                        they done
Too far in to save.

Well my steps sometimes grow heavy,
Pavement crumbles 'neath my feet.
Yes my steps grow oh so heavy,
Pavement crumbles 'neath my feet.
Its the weight of all them people
                        I still
Carry on with me.

When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
