Shawn Mendes The Weight lyrics

Shawn Mendes with “The Weight” is the closing track from "The Shawn Mendes EP". "The Weight" is a heart-breaking song about your girlfriend cheating on you with your neighbor.

I want to go back, forget that it's over
Painted 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 that you needed time, but you push 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 every time 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 that you needed time, but you push 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 weigh, no I can't life the weight
Yeah, you stand on my shoulders and my heart just break
I can't lift the weigh, no I can't life the weight
Yeah, you stand on my shoulders and my heart just breaks
I can't lift the weigh, no I can't life the weight
Yeah, you lower your standards and I raise the stakes
I can't lift the weigh, no I can't life the weight

You tell me you were happier with him, but you want me to stay
And you tell me that you needed time but you, you push me away
And when you try to take it 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

You told me that you needed time but you, you push me away
And when try to take me back
You say someday you will change, but I don't wanna wait
