Lyrics
Your face looked new against the town
You've come to lose some memories
Like you I've came to touch new grounds

But you want to lose
The weight of the wind (of the wind)
Rests hard on your shoulders
Bringing you down (down down)
The one that you love (love}
Will never be found!

You speak into the falling rain
Words you'd lost, but found again
I see their snakey arms entwined
So clear and cruel
In your jealous mind!

But you've got to lose
The weight of the wind (of the wind)
Hard on your shoulders
I know what that means {down down)
The one that you love (love)
Will never be found!

The weight of the wind,
The weight of the wind (of the wind)
Hard on your shoulders,
Driving you down (down down).
The one that you love
Will never be found {found}.
You lost them forever (you lost them forever)
Down, Down.
The weight of the wind,
The weight of the wind,
Hard on your shoulders,
Driving you down (down down).
The one that you love (love)
Will never be found {found}.
You lost them forever (you lost them forever)
Down, Down.
