Work Of Art: Lift

No One Knows The Weight

I put my drink on the table, I take a look around
If I was hiding I would never be found

No one knows my face here, no one knows my name
Nobody knows from where I came

And I don't know a soul here but that don't bother me
I don't need no company

It's true, so true, no one knows the weight another carries
It's clear no one here could know the weight another man carries
No one here

I come here to forget her, not for sympathy
Just to drown her memory
I can't escape these people, the ones that do insist
The weight they carry is the heaviest

It's true, so true, no one knows the weight another carries
It's clear no one here could know the weight another man carries
No one here

When I get up to go I put my jacket on
No one will notice when I'm gone
It's every man for himself, I can tell by what I see
Misery loves company

It's true, so true, no one knows the weight another carries
It's clear no one here could know the weight another man carries
No one here or anywhere
