weary lyrics – amel larrieux

“weary”

this woman is growing weary
of having to be so strong
of having to pretend i’m made of stone
so i won’t end up with no broken bones
i can’t fight every battle alone

i want someone to lift me
heal my wounds and give me kisses on my head
say words that should be said
fear is not the matter
i would so much rather open up my heart
and lay down my guard

[chorus:]
if i could trust someone
to have my back and never do me wrong
then i would give my love up
just like that stop singing this soldier song
[repeat]

whomever said love was overrated
must not be getting none
my independent days have had their fun
but when the parties over
and the workin’ day is done
i just want to come home to someone

i want a love to take me
as i am not make me compromise myself
or be like no one else
fear is not the matter
i would so much rather open up my heart
and just lay down my guard

[chorus]
