Weight on My Chest
© 1980 The Imports

Understand me
No, I don’t think you do
I don’t think I can
Normal, don’t feel for me

Understand you, can I?
Changing with a kick
Or a breath
Or a wave of the hand
It means so much to me
A word can do it
Put the price on my head
I don’t want the responsibility

Can’t be avoided
Some say as much
Thought you were doing a favor
Put it on my head
The weight on my chest
My back aches

Take it off at night
You put it there
On my chest
The weight on my head
My neck’s going to crack
Suffocation with a word
Smile deadly
Thought you were doing a favor
Thought I was doing it
It will stay there
We did it
