Take the Burden off my Shoulders
(Marietta Schröder)

I’m sitting at the window
And watch the change of light
It changes from grey to yellow
While I moan my plight

I’m sitting at my table
And pour my worries out
The words they all but tumble
And to spite them all I shout

Take the Burden off my shoulders
Take it off my mind
The Light it changes from grey to yellow
I wonder are there others of my kind

The air is hoarse with whispers
And I listen closely but
All I hear is snickers
From the wind and I scream what

I’m leaning at my window
And stare into the night
The stars are hanging low
But I can’t see their light

Take the Burden off my shoulders
Take it off my mind
The Light it changes from grey to yellow
I wonder are there others of my kind
