Lay Me Down

2013 Words and Music by Kevin A. Gray

 

Lay me down

Lay me down

 

Lay me down

Won't you lay me down

Next to you

 

For a door sealed with rust

Is opened with trust

and into the door you flew

but was there ever room for two

room for two

 

Runnin round

I was runnin round

Never true

 

Lost and found

I was lost and found

Found by you

 

But the pitter-patter of footsteps

The sounds you longed to hear

The longing for those footsteps

Would only bring a tear

But bring a tear

 

Cut me down

Why did you cut me down

Oh so true

 

The pitter-patter of footsteps

The sounds you longed to hear

The longing for those footsteps

Would only bring a tear

But bring a tear

 

 

So lay me down

Why don't you lay me down

Or lay me in the ground

lay me in the ground

Next to the love

we once knew

Next to the love

we once knew
