Backpack

You're a wanderer on the way to somewhere
Tirelessly fighting your way up the mountain
It seems to you like everything used to be easier
And you find every step difficult
And we all schlep1 our stones around with us
Like a backpack full of memories
And every now and then, the weight is too much to lift alone
But I've got your back2
 
No rope anymore like a free climber
And the air is slowly getting thin
We keep going, together as one
Strength isn't half bad
 
When your battery is empty, your baggage is too heavy
When the next step demands everything of you
When you have too much pressure, give me your backpack
And I'll carry it for you till you can
 
Hey, don't worry, I've been there myself
Every now and then the water's up to your neck
Give me your hand, I'll pull you up the last few meters
There's so much to see up here
 
And I know you stand ready
When I'm on the ground
Pull us up, together as one,
Strength isn't half bad
 
When your battery is empty, your baggage is too heavy
When the next step demands everything of you
When you have too much pressure, give me your backpack
And I'll carry it for you till you can
 
When your battery is empty, your baggage is too heavy
When the next step demands everything of you
When you have too much pressure, give me your backpack
And I'll carry it for you till you can
 
  • 1. In North American English, we use the word “schlep” informally the same way it is used in German, meaning to haul or drag something that's heavy or awkward to carry.
  • 2. Literally, “I'm behind you.”
