Elton John - "The Weight Of The World" lyrics

I'm weary and I'm staying up late
And the rain hits my roof so hard
You know I'm no longer thirty
These days I'm happy to play
Disturbing the peace I've found
One or two hands of cards
I hate flies in the kitchen buzzing
Fortune and fame is so fleeting
These days I'm happy to say
I'm amazed that I'm still around

When we fell, we got up
And the weight of the world is off my back
And crawled out the cracks
Excuse me if I take some comfort in that
Happy today, happy to play

With the weight of the world off of my back
Humidity hangs like a curtain
Oh, it fogs up my glasses sometimes
You know I've still got my eyesight
A sunset instead of a line
These days I'm happy to see

And the weight of the world is off my back
When we fell, we got up
Excuse me if I take some comfort in that
And crawled out the cracks
Happy today, happy to play
With the weight of the world off of my back

That I don't recall
There's a long list of names
Even though my memory's good
The rain washed away
I hate flies in the kitchen buzzing
When the weight of the world weighed more than it should
The lemons and weeds

Disturbing the peace I've found
Fortune and fame is so fleeting
These days I'm happy to say
I'm amazed that I'm still around
Excuse me if I take some comfort in that
And the weight of the world is off my back
When we fell, we got up
And crawled out the cracks
With the weight of the world off of my back

Happy today, happy to play
Happy today, happy to play
With the weight of the world off of my back
