What’s your ‘Albatross’?

Have you ever heard that one song? You know the one where you feel like the lyrics are speaking just to you? I think that music has that magic about it that you can’t get from any other art form. It feels so personal. I have recently bought Bastille’s debut album and this is the secret track – I bloody love it – and it really connects to me. Felt the need to share the lyrics:

There’s an albatross around your neck,
All the things you’ve said,
and the things you’ve done,
Can you carry it with no regrets,
Can you stand the person you’ve become,
Ooh there’s a light
Your Albatross, let it go, let it go,
Your Albatross shoot it down, shoot it down
When you just can’t shake
The heavy weight of living
Stepping forward out into the day
Shrugging off the dust and memory
Though it’s soaring still above your head
It is out of sight and none shall see
Oooh there’s a light
Your Albatross, let it go, let it go,
Your Albatross shoot it down, shoot it down
When you just can’t shake
The heavy weight of living
When you just can’t seem to shake
The heavy weight of Living
It’s the sun in your eyes, in your eyes
Your Albatross, let it go, let it go,
Your Albatross shoot it down, shoot it down
When you just can’t shake
The heavy weight of living
When you just can’t seem to shake
The heavy weight of Living
