Weight of Living Pt. I
Bastille Lyrics


There's an albatross around your neck,
All the things you've said,
And the things you've done,
Can you carry it with no regrets,
Can you stand the person you've become,
Ooh there's a light
Ooh there's a light

Your Albatross, let it go, let it go,
Your Albatross shoot it down, shoot it down
When you just can't shake the
Heavy weight of living

Stepping forward out into the day
Shrugging off the dust and memory
Though it's soaring still above your head
It is out of sight and none shall see
Ooh there's a light
Ooh there's a light

Your Albatross, let it go, let it go,
Your Albatross shoot it down, shoot it down
When you just can't shake the
Heavy weight of living
When you just can't seem to shake
The weight of living

It's the sun in your eyes, in your eyes
It's the sun in your eyes, in your eyes
It's the sun in your eyes, in your eyes
It's the sun in your eyes, in your eyes

Your Albatross, let it go, let it go,
Your Albatross shoot it down, shoot it down
When you just can't shake the
Heavy weight of living
When you just can't seem to shake
The weight of living

The weight of living
The weight of living
The weight of living
The weight of living

(Ooh)

There's an albatross around your neck,
All the things you've said,
And the things you've done,
Can you carry it with no regrets,
Can you stand the person you've become,
Ooh there's a light
Ooh there's a light
Your Albatross, let it go, let it go,
Your Albatross shoot it down, shoot it down
When you just can't shake the
Heavy weight of living
Stepping forward out into the day
Shrugging off the dust and memory
Though it's soaring still above your head
It is out of sight and none shall see
Ooh there's a light
Ooh there's a light
Your Albatross, let it go, let it go,
Your Albatross shoot it down, shoot it down
When you just can't shake the
Heavy weight of living
When you just can't seem to shake
The weight of living
It's the sun in your eyes, in your eyes
It's the sun in your eyes, in your eyes
It's the sun in your eyes, in your eyes
It's the sun in your eyes, in your eyes
Your Albatross, let it go, let it go,
Your Albatross shoot it down, shoot it down
When you just can't shake the
Heavy weight of living
When you just can't seem to shake
The weight of living
The weight of living
The weight of living
The weight of living
The weight of living

I'm surprised not many people know this song even though it is easily my favourite out of the entire album

If you've read the Rime of the Ancient Mariner, this song makes much more sense

1st time when I heard...I thought about this poem❤️

I loved BΔD BLOOD as an early teen but now several years down the line I completely understand Dan describing it as an album about coming to grips with being an adult when in your late teens and early 20s- it is COMPLETELY SPOT ON! "Do you like the person you've become?" I don't know..

There's an albatross around your neck,
All the things you've said,
And the things you've done,
Can you carry it with no regrets,
Can you stand the person you've become,
Ooh there's a light
Ooh there's a light
Your Albatross, let it go, let it go,
Your Albatross shoot it down, shoot it down
When you just can't shake the
Heavy weight of living
Stepping forward out into the day
Shrugging off the dust and memory
Though it's soaring still above your head
It is out of sight and none shall see
Ooh there's a light
Ooh there's a light
Your Albatross, let it go, let it go,
Your Albatross shoot it down, shoot it down
When you just can't shake the
Heavy weight of living
When you just can't seem to shake
The weight of living
It's the sun in your eyes, in your eyes
It's the sun in your eyes, in your eyes
It's the sun in your eyes, in your eyes
It's the sun in your eyes, in your eyes
Your Albatross, let it go, let it go,
Your Albatross shoot it down, shoot it down
When you just can't shake the
Heavy weight of living
When you just can't seem to shake
The weight of living
The weight of living
The weight of living
The weight of living
The weight of living
