lyrics

Verse 1: Elias
Oh Lord
What am I?
What am I supposed to do?
Why do I always feel like I have to prove?
Well, I grew up in the gutter,
both feet in the mud and grime.
Stank of the sewer and the failure that followed me all the time.
Well, my daddy walked the wrong path, and I knew I had to choose.
Momma overwhelmed with all these things she had to do.
Oh Lord you know it’s hard
when your childhoods not spent on you.
And you trying to being a man
before you even understand.

Chorus 2x: Elias and Jordan Santana
Oooh child.
You don’t walk alone (you don't walk alone)
Just give him your burden
he gonna carry that heavy load (carry that heavy load)

Verse 2: Cas Metah
You've had a lot of weight on your plate
growing up in the slums, the village of snakes
makes it easy to see the reason you stayed away
from the streets and the games that the players play
You felt the pain and the bruise on your mothers eye
felt the sting of the needle when your brother died
Ain't no wonder why you feel like God is just another lie
when you lost everything you've ever loved in life
You're not alone though
You got to hold on and roll with the stones throw
Hold on bro
We all been there, we all bear losses
but only one was ever born to bear crosses
He is The Father to the fatherless
inviting you to walk in the land of His promises
and all you got to do is walk with Him
not run, not crawl, just walk with Him (walk with Him)

Chorus 2x: Elias and Jordan Santana
Oooh child.
You don’t walk alone (you don't walk alone)
Just give him your burden
he gonna carry that heavy load (Carry that heavy load)

Verse 3: Jordan Santana
Nobody carried my burden before and I don't know
just how I'm supposed to not feel alone
I been walking this road all on my own
So tell me, why am I so special
that The Sculptor would care for such a vessel?
Broken, but maybe that's what leaves me open
for somebody to pour a little hope in

Chorus 2x: Elias and Jordan Santana
Oooh child.
You don’t walk alone (you don't walk alone)
Just give him your burden
he gonna carry that heavy load (Carry that heavy load)
