Lyrics

It's a cold old world that we're walking through
They ought to tell you at the start
But it's warm as toast walkin' two by two
Lay down the burden of your heart

Lay down the burden of your heart
I know you'll never miss it
Just show me, angel, where it hurts
And let your mammy kiss it

It's a fine fine line between love and hate
It's hard to tell the two apart
But what strength I have I offer you
Lay down the burden of your heart

Lay down the burden of your heart
I know you'll never miss it
Just show me, angel, where it hurts
And let your mammy kiss it

Lay down the burden of your heart
I know you'll never miss it
Just show me, angel, where it hurts
And let your mammy kiss it
