Lyrics to "The Weight" song by "Shawn Mendes"

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 moreYou tell me you were happier with him, you want me to stay
And you tell me that you needed time but you push me away
But then you try to take me back, my heavy heart just breaks
No, I can't lift the weightPut you in the past,
Try to forget you 'cause it's over
And every time you ask
I 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, yeahYou tell me you were happier with him, you want me to stay
And you tell me that you needed time, but you push me away
But then you try to take me back, my heavy heart just breaks
But, I can't lift the weight, and I can't lift the weightAnd I can't lift the weight, no, I can't lift the weight
Yeah, you stand on my shoulders and my heart just breaks
And I can't lift the weight, no, I can't lift the weight
Yeah, you stand on my shoulders and my heart just breaks
And I can't lift the weight, no, I can't lift the weight
Yeah, you lower your standards and I raise the stakes
And I can't lift the weight, no, I can't lift the weightYou 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
But then you try to take me back, my heavy heart just breaks
But, I can't lift the weight, and I can't lift the weightYou tell me you were happier with him, you want me to stay
You told me that you needed time but you, you push me away
And then you try to take me back
Say someday you will change, but I don't wanna wait

Enjoy the The Weight Lyrics!!!


Shawn Peter Raul Mendes (born August 8, 1998 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian singer-songwriter. Since the release of his self-titled "The Shawn Mendes EP" and his debut single "Life of the Party", he has been gaining mainstream success as a singer-songwriter and touring artist.

Mendes was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and was raised in Pickering, a suburb of the city. He is the son of Karen, a real estate agent, and Manuel Mendes, a businessman. His father is of Portuguese descent (from a family from Lagos), while his mother is English.

He first started posting cover videos on the popular social video app Vine in 2013 and picked up millions of views and followers in a matter of months, becoming well known for his six-second snippets of renditions of many popular songs. Artist manager Andrew Gertler discovered Mendes online in January 2014, bringing him to Island Records where he eventually signed and released his first single "Life of the Party" in June 2014. He is the youngest artist to debut in the top 25 with a debut song on the Billboard Hot 100, making to number 24 for the week ending July 12, 2014 at 15 years, 11 months and 4 days of age.

Prior to his signing, Mendes toured as a member of the MagCon Tour alongside other young artists and social media sensations such as Nash Grier, Cameron Dallas, Jack & Jack, and more. Mendes was also on a nationwide tour with Austin Mahone as an opening act and released his debut major label EP in July, with a debut album due out later in 2014. He won the Teen Choice award in 2014 for Webstar in Music. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
