lyrics

and if we knew all the things we'd have to take
onto our shoulders we would break beneath the weight
and so we lift with our legs, see what we can take
we do it slowly over weeks we wait and wait

if you could feel all the pounds on my waist
all the fuel i've burned, all that's gone to waste
if you could fill out my bones and fill my plate
please do it slowly over weeks i'll take the weight

and if you knew all the love i'd like to make
you'd run away...or maybe you'd stay
i'll put my back into it, i won't go away
i'll do it slowly over weeks i'll wait and wait

and if i could tell you how i struggle with the wait
want it to be over need an end to come, it always feels so late
i want to know all i can, test my faith
before it's over, let it be over, i can't wait.
