Let me just tell you I really should go back to sleep
It's not that I'm ungrateful, I have too many memories to keep
I wish you could feel just how heavy I am all the time
Sometimes when I smile, I bite my lip so I don't cry

And it burns for a while
And it hurts all the more
When you carry the world as a child 

All that I've wanted is to talk to someone who is dead
But unfortunately I can't call him, so I sing instead
Though I'd never tell you to cover yourself in a lie
But I will still bite my lip harder so that I don't cry

And it burns for a while
And it hurts all the more
When you carry the world as a child 

And I burn for myself
'Cause I know that I should
When it's screaming at me to be felt 

And we burn all the time
'Cause it hurts all the more
When we carry the world as a child
