Weight Of My Mistakes
by Seal

Album: Seal 6: Commitment (2010)
  • The weight of my mistakes
    Depends on how I feel
    Don't let it bring you down

    The weight of what I say
    Depends on how you feel
    But I don't wanna bring you down, down, down

    I went walkin' down a busy street
    I was lookin' for a heartache
    I went lookin' for my heartache

    She said, don't you wanna be with me?
    Ooh, what a difference the day makes
    What a difference the day makes

    Lay on my pillow
    Look on us now
    One for today
    Two for tomorrow

    The weight of my mistakes
    Depends on how I feel
    But don't let it bring you down

    And the weight of what I say
    Depends on how you feel
    But I don't wanna bring you down, down, down

    Out in the distance comin' into view
    Six feathers in a hurricane
    But I don't wanna bring you down, down, down

    You're not familiar, and I don't know why
    Ooh, how beautiful the heartache

    Lay on my pillow
    Look on us now
    One for today
    Two for tomorrow

    But the weight of my mistakes
    Depends on how I feel
    But don't let it bring you down

    And the weight of what I say
    Depends on how you feel
    'Cause I don't wanna bring you down
    Down, down, down

    I got bogged down in a New York minute
    I hear you say you gotta be in it to win it
    Well, I don't know what this means
    Well, I don't know what this means

    The weight of my mistakes
    Depends on how I feel
    But don't let it bring you down

    And the weight of what I feel
    Depends on how you feel
    'Cause I don't wanna bring you down, down, down
    (I don't wanna let you down)

    The weight of my mistakes
    Depends on how I feel
    But don't let it bring you down, down, down Writer/s: MARCUS BROWN, GUS ISIDORE, SEAL SAMUEL, MARK LEWIS SUMMERLIN
