  • The world is too heavy
    Too big for my shoulders
    Come take this weight off me now

    1000's of answers
    To one simple question
    Come take this weight off me now

    Oh I'm like a kid who just won't let it go
    Twisting and turning the colors in rows
    I'm so intent to find out what it is
    This is my Rubik's cube
    I know I will figure it out

    Lost in the playground
    Late night nostalgia
    Open the sky for me now

    Friends round the fire
    Outside in December
    Open the sky for me now

    Oh I'm like a kid who just won't let it go
    Twisting and turning the colors in rows
    I'm so intent to find out what it is
    This is my Rubik's cube
    I know I will figure it out

    Credits roll over the edge of horizons
    That I haven't discovered yet

    Oh I'm like a kid who just won't let it go
    Twisting and turning the colors in rows
    I'm so intent to find out what it is
    This is my Rubik's cube
    I know I will figure it out

    Oh I'm like a kid who just won't let it go
    Twisting and turning the colors in rows
    I'm so intent to find out what it is
    This is my Rubik's cube
    I know I will figure it out Writer/s: CAREY SUTHON WILLETTS, JOEL LASLETT POTT, STEVEN ALEXANDER ROBERTS, TIMOTHY JOHN WANSTALL
