Burden Down lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’m a river, I keep running on
I’m a pillar you got used to leaning on

Underneath it, there’s a person
I’m a woman and I’m hurting
Cause I feel like I’m holding up the world

[Chorus]
When I lay this burden down
Who’s gonna take it up for me
When you run me in the ground
That’s the day you’re gonna see
For all I’ve done I’m alone
Just for a moment can I not be strong
So how ’bout now oh can I lay
This burden down

[Verse 2]
I deliver each and every time
I’m a giver, I don’t think about what’s mine

You keep me asking, you keep taking
And that’s no reciprocation
I shouldn’t have to do this by myself

[Chorus]
When I lay this burden down
Who’s gonna take it up for me
When you run me in the ground
That’s the day you’re gonna see
For all I’ve done I’m alone
Just for a moment can I not be strong
So how ’bout now oh can I lay
This burden down

[Bridge]
I’m a river, I keep running on
I’m a pillar, you’re used to leaning on
Just this once, oh just this once

[Chorus]
When I lay this burden down
Who’s gonna take it up for me
When you run me in the ground
That’s the day you’re gonna see
For all I’ve done I’m alone
Just for a moment can I not be strong
So how ’bout now oh can I lay
This burden down

Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga Split After 10 Years


Jennifer Hudson is back on the market after parting ways with her fiance of 10 years, David Otunga.

PEOPLE broke the news on Thursday citing a statement from the singer’s publicist that she has received a protective order against Otunga and that the couple split some months ago. “Today, Jennifer requested and received a protective order against her ex-fiancé. Jennifer’s actions are solely taken in the best interest of their son,” the statement reads. The fitness model has remained silent about the split.

Jennifer Hudson, 36, and David Otunga, 37, have been dating since around 2007 and has an 8-year-old son, David Daniel Otunga Jr. The couple got engaged in 2008 a little less than a year of dating after Otunga surprised the R&B singer and popped the question. She said yes, but a wedding was never forthcoming.

In 2009, they welcome their first and only child and have remained together ever since despite not getting married. After getting engaged in 08, everything seems to be going well for Jennifer Hudson until tragedy struck her family. Around a month after she got engaged, her mother, Darnell Donerson, and her brother, Jason Hudson, were fatally shot to death inside their Chicago home, while her 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, was found in the backseat of a car dead.

The singer’s former brother-in-law was convicted for the murders in 2012 and sent to prison.
