The Weight
The Weight
by Sarah E. White
12/20/2012

ended without a sad goodbye
messages and phone calls, no reply

let it go for a couple of weeks,
i cried myself to sleep.
 
this just isn't me

i waited to long trying not to notice
the silence that soon, served me well

all was quiet except the page turning
inside me raging hell

*pre chorus*
I'm heading out in an hour,
the town is mine the night is young,
nothing here is going to stop me,
you missed your chance on that one

*CHORUS*
I'm leaving you at the door tonight,
pushing you back so I can feel alright,
and I think I'm gonna be okay, again
This is ending with a new start and I,
don't want your weight on my heart and I,
don't want you on my mind,
anymore tonight.


walking away never seemed as easy
as giving in, to, the pain

yesterday i felt differently
but today has changed.

Nothing was ever, going fix this
I've realized that, just now

although I've got all my bags
i feel lighter somehow

*pre chorus*
So I'm heading out in an hour
where I'm going I don't know,
but at this point anything is better
than making myself feel alone.

*CHORUS*
I'm leaving you at the door tonight,
pushing you back so I can feel alright,
and I think I'm gonna be okay, again
This is ending with a new start and I,
don't want your weight on my heart and I,
don't want you on my mind,
anymore tonight.

*music break*

Thank you for never calling
or giving me a reason why

Silence was the best gift
that you gave me
With it I finally found that I'mmmmm

*CHORUS*
I'm leaving you at the door tonight,
pushing you back so I can feel alright,
and I think I'm gonna be okay, again
This is ending with a new start and I,
don't want your weight on my heart and I,
don't want you on my mind,
anymore tonight.


I don't want you anymore tonight.

Well "The Wait" is over I finally posted a song!!!! It has been forever and I think my year of writers block is definitely coming to an end and fast, I have so much going on with this song.  It's based on real life, as are all my lyrics. Suggestions are welcome, however I am getting more comfortable with the way I write.

About the song:
Its about a person, who is just been in a long relationship that was over well before it was "over" sort of ended without any goodbyes, a clean break if you will, and it was for the best, and as weeks go by without contact, they find themselves in the silence of it all.

Let me know what you think!!!

I love you all and have really missed you!

These are REALLY good   Its so good to see some new lyrics from you. I really enjoy them and they create a feeling of bittersweet sadness within me. Its very sad but at the same time happy. Wow. Good job.
Definitely looking forward to more.

I suppose if it is not yet set in stone or on dvd then it sounds right to you, I find the actual chorus a bit 'rambling', for use of a better word. Compared to the short bursts of the stanzas / verses ... which are very strong poetical and to the point.
Enjoyed reading your work again, keep on writing and posting
