“Burden” Lyrics

Let me carry your burden
If somethin’ ain’t right I will let you know
Like the paint that’s drying on a heart that’s broke
Let me carry your burden
Get you back on a high when you’re feeling low
When the weight’s too heavy but you won’t let go
Come to me, my brother, and I will sit with you awhile
Pretty soon I’ll see you smile and you know you will
No matter how much you’re hurting right now
You know that everything will change in time
So let me carry your burden
Let me carry your burden
When your mouth’s on fire but your mind is cold
And you’re fanning flames that won’t keep you warm
Come to me, my brother, and I will sit with you a while
Pretty soon I’ll see you smile and you know you will
No matter how much you’re hurting right now
You know that everything will change in time
Let me carry your burden, oh brother of mine
Let me carry your burden
Come tomorrow you’ll be right as rain
It’ll quench your fire, wash away your stains
Yes it will, yeah
Come to me, my brother, and I will sit with you a while
Pretty soon I’ll see you smile and you know you will
Oh it don’t matter how much you’re hurting right now
You know that everything will change in time
I just might see it in another life
I got no dog here in the fight
I could carry your burden, oh brother of mine
I could carry your burden
I could carry your burden
Carry your burden
Yes I can, yes I can
