about

@elesimo: "I love @popmythology's lyrics because they're so musical! Every time I read them the melody just pops up into my head. When I saw these lyrics and I had this idea of recording them in a very minimalist song, with a megaphone style chorus. In the end the megaphone idea didn't work out, so I left only vocals, bass and pads."

lyrics

Tried so hard to get my way
I’d get on my knees and pray
Lord, I can’t carry anymore
Won’t you take this weight away?

Lord, please come and take what’s yours
Oh, what’s yours what’s yours what’s yours
Lord, please come and take what’s yours
For this life was never mine

When I gave my life away
Darkest night then turned to day
I felt the pain but it was fine
And I lifted my voice to say

Lord, please come and take what’s yours
Oh, what’s yours what’s yours what’s yours
Lord, please come and take what’s yours
For this life was never mine

In a world that’s cold and grey
I have finally found a way
Put my burdens on the floor
I don’t own them anyway

Lord, please come and take what’s yours
Oh, what’s yours what’s yours what’s yours
Lord, please come and take what’s yours
For this life was never mine
