Lady Lay Down

Album: Rose Colored Glasses (1978)
  • Too many times I didn't try to hold you
    I never kept the promises I told you
    Now it's time I give in, I know
    To the words that I should have said long ago

    Lady lay down beside me
    Wrap all your love around me
    I need you to stay
    Don't turn away from me now
    Lady lay down

    You've been alone, I guess I've known about it
    You gave me love & learned to live without it
    Now that you've turned to go
    Let me beg you to stay the best way I know

    [Chorus: x2]

  • Brad from Barry, TxI've never heard a bad John Conlee song, and "Lady Lay Down" is no exception. Although, "Rose Colored Glasses" is probably my favorite Conlee track, each one was great. A great voice and some really wonderful songs.
