Dead Weight

Album: All That For This (2013)
  • If it’s meant to be
    Baby oh just let it be, let it bee
    Don’t go beating dead horses,
    Keep steady your course, you’ll see
    Sing our lullaby, all things impossible in being nice
    Dreams don’t take to your soul, it’s the only thing no one can take

    [Chorus]
    And if you don’t know, I’ll tell you
    Just take down your load and wipe your frown
    If you’re holding on to dead weight it’s just holding you down
    Oh you’re gonna sink or swim, you better let it go now
    Let it go now

    Hear my lover’s side, lying on a nothing set in black and white
    Oh but as I get older, each moment means more than the last
    So I say we waste our time on cigarettes and cheap red wine
    We’ll sing well into the night, that light will be coming up fast

    [Chorus]

    And if you don’t know, I’ll tell you
    Just take down your load and wipe your frown
    If you’re holding on to dead weight it’s just holding you down
    Oh you’re gonna sink or swim, you better let it go now
    Oh, let it go now
    Let it go
    Let it go
    Let it go
    Oh, let it go now
    Let it go now
    If you don’t know I’ll tell you Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
