Monthly Challenge: February

 

The Weight

Yesterday I put you on my shoulders
You clamped yourself onto my back
Holding tight, holding tight

In the corner of my eye there’s always you
With every step I take you’re there
Holding tight, holding tight,
Never to let go…

… your own way

On we go, we walk through life together
Running fast, pretending you’re a feather
You’re hugging me, you’re grip is strong
I can’t breathe
Can’t feel my legs, the heavy weight
It’s killing me, killing me
Why won’t you let go…

…your own way

Yesterday I put you on my shoulder
Yesterday I put you on my shoulder

Why won’t you let go
Why won’t you let it go

 

And there’s another one! We did it again! It is quite difficult to write, arrange, rehearse, record and film a song in one month. 30 days are gone before you can blink, but with some hard work, dedication and a lot of sweat we created ‘The Weight’.

This song is about carrying someone (or something) on your back. At first you think you’re okay with it, but sometimes this weight on your back becomes heavier and heavier, but you can’t get rid of it.

Erwin really turned his new modular synth inside out for this one and Desirée had to practice keerping the bass line going while singing and performing the song. We hope you like it! If you do, please share it with your friends!
