LYRICS BY:
CHARLEY WOODS

Some of them cheated, one cheated twice

Some of them moved me and some never tried

One said 'I love you' two weeks shy of 'goodbye'

Most got married and all of them lied

Hear me when I say I don't want it to be this way

No I can't carry

Everybody else's hurt when mine's enough to make it burn

It's just too heavy

All I wanna do is fly away

But there's too much baggage underneath this plane

It's nothing I want to claim

But somehow I'm to blame for all this extra weight

She was my best friend since seventh grade

Until she decided I just got in the way

Most girls never liked me and some were just mean

Always projecting their own insecurities

Hear me when I say I don't want it to be this way

No I can't carry

Everybody else's hurt when mine's enough to make it burn

It's just too heavy

All I wanna do is fly away

But there's too much baggage underneath this plane

It's nothing I want to claim

But somehow I'm to blame for all this extra weight

I never asked for this

Or to hold onto it

Yet somehow here it is

Stealing my happiness

Nobody's perfect, everybody needs help

Breaking the cycles and taking care of our own mental health

Because some of the worst cards we don't know we're dealt

Until we go deal them out to somebody else
