don’t weigh me down lyrics – people like you

time ticks, it ticks on by so slowly
waiting for you to see the light
you don’t want to be around me
but refuse to cut off the ties and take flight

so now that you know
please don’t weigh me down
don’t fool around
understand me
it’s time that i grow
please don’t weigh me down
don’t you play the clown
can’t you come around
don’t weigh me down

let’s make peace and go our ways calmly
let’s be friends and keep what once was happy
we know it’s gone too far to save it
let it go that way some you’ll savour

so now that you know
please don’t weigh me down
don’t fool around
understand me
it’s time that i grow
please don’t weigh me down
don’t you play the clown
can’t you come around
don’t weigh me down

i’d rather keep you here and have it like before
but i see that cannot be
we have to close the door

so now that you know
please don’t weigh me down
don’t fool around
understand me
it’s time that i grow
please don’t weigh me down
don’t you play the clown
can’t you come around
don’t weigh me down

don’t you think it’s better
if we go our separate ways
let it go, let it drift away
it’s been too long, it’s hard to stay
we need to leave this
let it fade
