Just Can't Last Lyrics

Artist: Natalie Merchant
Album: Motherland

I swear I know your face
I wish I knew your name
I wish I could take you by the hand.
If I could name it, if I could just explain it.
If I could only help you, help you understand.

I can see that you're hurting
Weighed down like a beast of burden about to break your back.
God only knows that you're human so what are they trying to do then?
Believe me, they don't understand that you have the weight of the world today.
It's on your back.
A heavy load like that is gonna hold you back.
It's gonna drag you down.
You know it just can't last, you know it just can't last.

They thought they could use you
Push you down and abuse you
And what's so sad is you've decided to hide all your feelings
Got more pain than you can deal with but ask yourself, how can this last?

I know you have the weight of the world today, it's on your back.
A heavy load like that is gonna hold you back, it's gonna drag you down.
You know it just can't last, you know it just can't last.
