SHAWN MENDES - The Weight

This song is from the album Handwritten(2015), released on Apr 28, 2015.
I loved the lyrics, the execution and the production of this song. The arrangement is really interesting, slowly building up the intensity towards the chorus. I loved the way that Shawn sang the song, especially those fast parts in the second part. The guitar and the rhythm felt tight and impressive. I expected the bass to be a little fancier than this. That would have made the song even better.

[INTRO] Gm Dm Eb Bb Bbmaj7 x2
[VERSE]
Gm     Dm
I wanna go back,
Eb          Bb     Bbmaj7
Forget that it's over
Gm       Dm
Paint it in black,
Eb        Bb        Bbmaj7
When you left me alone
Gm  Dm
I never knew,
         Eb                          Bb          Bbmaj7
She was sleeping next door with the kid I grew up with,
Gm         Dm             Eb     Bb F
And I can't go back to her anymore, no

[CHORUS]
Gm                   Eb              Bb         F
You tell me you were happier with him, you want me to stay
Gm                        Eb                  Bb        F
And you tell me that you needed time but you pushed me away
      Gm           Eb                 Bb               F
And when you try to take me back, my heavy heart just breaks
            Gm       Dm  Eb Bb Bbmaj7
No, I can't lift the weight

[VERSE]
Gm      Dm
Put you in the past,
Eb                   Bb        Bbmaj7
Try to forget you 'cause it's over
Gm         Dm
And every time you ask
Eb             Bb Bbmaj7
I'll pretend I'm okay
Gm            Dm
You're inside my head
Eb
In the middle of the night
                     Bb
When I don't feel right
       Bbmaj7       Gm
I dream I can hold you,
Gm         Dm             Eb    Bb        F
And I can't go back to you anymore, yeah, yeah

[CHORUS]
Gm                   Eb              Bb         F
You tell me you were happier with him, you want me to stay
Gm                        Eb                  Bb        F
And you tell me that you needed time but you pushed me away
      Gm           Eb                 Bb               F
And when you try to take me back, my heavy heart just breaks
                        Gm  Dm                   Eb   Bb
But I can't lift the weight, and I can't lift the weight

[BRIDGE]
Gm                         Dm
And I can't lift the weight, no, I can't lift the weight
              Eb                    Bb              Bbmaj7
Yeah, you stand on my shoulders and my heart just breaks
Gm                         Dm
And I can't lift the weight, no, I can't lift the weight
              Eb                    Bb              Bbmaj7
Yeah, you stand on my shoulders and my heart just breaks
Gm                         Dm
And I can't lift the weight, no, I can't lift the weight
              Eb                    Bb              Bbmaj7
Yeah, you lower your standards and I raise the stakes
Gm                         Dm                       Eb
And I can't lift the weight, no, I can't lift the weight

[CHORUS]
Gm                   Eb              Bb         F
You tell me you were happier with him, you want me to stay
Gm                        Eb                  Bb        F
And you tell me that you needed time but you pushed me away
      Gm           Eb                 Bb               F
And when you try to take me back, my heavy heart just breaks
                        Gm  Dm                   Eb   Bb
But I can't lift the weight, and I can't lift the weight

Gm                   Eb              Bb         F
You tell me you were happier with him, you want me to stay
Gm                        Eb                  Bb        F
And you tell me that you needed time but you pushed me away
Gm                   Eb                Bb                   F
And when you try to take me back, say someday you will change,
                Gm Dm Eb Bb
But I don't wanna wait
