Shawn Mendes - The Weight

I wanna go back
Forget that it's over
paint it in black
when you left me alone

I never knew
she was sleeping next door with the kid I grew up with
And I can't go back to her
Anymore, No

You tell me you were happier with him,
But you want me to stay.
And you tell me you needed time,
But you pushed me away.
And when you try to take me back,
My heavy heart just breaks.
No, I can't lift the weight

Put you in the past
try to forget you cause it's over
and everytime you ask
I'll pretend I'm okay


you're inside my head
In the middle of the night when I don't feel right I dream I can hold you,
and I can't go back to you
anymore, yeah yeah

You tell me you were happier with him,
But you want me to stay.
And you tell me you needed time,
But you pushed me away.
And when you try to take me back,
My heavy heart just breaks.
But I can't lift the weight
And I can't lift the weight

I can't lift the weight
No, I can't lift the weight
Yeah you stand on my shoulders and my heart just breaks
and I can't lift the weight
No, I can't lift the weight
Yeah you stand on my shoulders and my heart just breaks
I can't lift the weight
No, I can't lift the weight
Yeah you lower your standards and I raise the stakes
can't lift the weight
No, I can't lift the weight

You tell me you were happier with him,
But you want me to stay.
And you tell me you needed time,
But you pushed me away.
And when you try to take me back,
My heavy heart just breaks.
But I can't lift the weight
And I can't lift the weight

You tell me you were happier with him,
But you want me to stay.
And you told me that you needed time,
But you pushed me away.
And when you try to take me back,
Say someday you will change
But I don't want to wait.
