Overweight (Blue October)

Ever carried the weight of another? For how long? I walk as far as they need to recover For how long? (ha!) I want to carry a piece of who I was before So when I hit the wall, I really hit the wall I want to tear away the death again A whiter shade of fucking meth again I want to stick to clues, I want to come unglued I want to shape the world to fit the way you move Oh, should I listen for a dress size? I owned up, I've grown up, do you remember me? I showed up and so what if I'm the used to be I'm here to tell you that I'm sorry I was sorry But I'm happy that you're happiness is no longer about me Trade rules, switch sides for your beautiful eyes Let him be you through your beautiful cries Let him hold you up so you can touch affordable skies Live your life just like a dream Without the pain of goodbyes Goodbye! Ever carried the weight of another? For how long? I walk as far as they need to recover For how long? I been a drunk disrespectful little street punk Unlock the back of my trunk You see, you take this bat And bash my head into the street again No-ones around so I keep beating it Pull my hair back, look me in the eye There's a self-destructive meaning in the bleeding of a guy It's the guilt of what reality has given me Making sense of all mistakes and my stupidity And when you're sick you seem to think You've failed eternally And that the people you let in are only crumbling When you're sick of thinking life in this recovery When my decision paved the road That lies in front of me So to my friends that even call but I don't call back I want you deep inside my heart upon a hill It seems to hide sometimes and run away and wonder I'm really sick of saying sorry but I will Ever carried the weight of another? For how long? I walk as far as they need to recover For how long? But are we scared to take the ride? Or dare to look inside? I'm floating far away (far away) I'm floating far away (leaving home) I'm floating far away (so far away) I'm floating far away I want to learn to walk with others as an equal I want to treat the ones who love me with respect I want to tell the world I'll give them all a piggyback And try to take away my negative effect I want to kiss the girl, I know I'll never lie again I want to call my dad and tell him that I care I want to let my brother know He saved my life a thousand times Throughout the years he's been my friend Who's always there Ever carried the weight of another? For how long?
