Lyrics

Verse 1
Weary Traveller, the sun is high and your steps are getting heavy
You’re Looking down, and the sadness in your eyes is very telling
One foot in front of the other, you keep going

Chorus:
But you’re carrying a backpack full of things you can’t control
Walking next to you, I feel the burden of your load
The weight of it is crushing you, it’s too much on your own
So lay it down. Take my hand, you’re not alone

Verse 2
Weary Traveller, The long and dusty-road seems never-ending
There’s miles to go, and the journey you are on is overwhelming
One foot in front of the other; you keep moving

Chorus:
But you’re carrying a backpack full of things you can’t control
Walking next to you, I feel the burden of your load
The weight of it is crushing you, it’s too much on your own
So lay it down. take my hand, you’re not alone

Bridge
Oh oh oh - You’re not alone
Oh oh oh - I’ll lead you home

Verse 3
Weary Traveller, You may not know how deeply you are loved
Your life is precious
And I will finish all the work that I’ve begun
One foot in front of the other into freedom

Chorus:
But you’re carrying a backpack full of things you can’t control
Walking next to you, I feel the burden of your load
The weight of it is crushing you, it’s too much on your own
So lay it down. Take my hand, you’re not alone

Bridge
Oh oh oh - You’re not alone
Oh oh oh - I’ll lead you home

Biography

Here's a little bit about my musical journey:

I have been playing piano for over 40 years now. I couldn't wait to get my little hands on a piano! I was classically trained for many years and then attended the Jazz Music program at Grant MacEwan College (GMCC) in Edmonton, AB as a piano major... [more]
