Jennifer Hudson – Burden Down

[Verse 1]
I’m a river, I keep running on
I’m a pillar you got used to leaning on
Underneath it, there’s a person
I’m a woman and I’m hurting
Cause I feel like I’m holding up the world

[Chorus]
When I lay this burden down
Who’s gonna take it up for me
When you run me in the ground
That’s the day you’re gonna see
For all I’ve done I’m alone
Just for a moment can I not be strong
So how ’bout now oh can I lay
This burden down

[Verse 2]
I deliver each and every time
I’m a giver, I don’t think about what’s mine
You keep me asking, you keep taking
And that’s no reciprocation
I shouldn’t have to do this by myself

[Chorus]
When I lay this burden down
Who’s gonna take it up for me
When you run me in the ground
That’s the day you’re gonna see
For all I’ve done I’m alone
Just for a moment can I not be strong
So how ’bout now oh can I lay
This burden down

[Bridge]
I’m a river, I keep running on
I’m a pillar, you’re used to leaning on
Just this once, oh just this once

[Chorus]
When I lay this burden down
Who’s gonna take it up for me
When you run me in the ground
That’s the day you’re gonna see
For all I’ve done I’m alone
Just for a moment can I not be strong
So how ’bout now oh can I lay
This burden down
