Lay Me Down

Album: Full Circle (2016)
  • I raised my head and set myself
    In the eye of the storm, in the belly of a whale
    My spirit stood on solid ground
    I'll be at peace when they lay me down

    When I was a child, I cried
    Until my needs were satisfied
    My needs have grown up, pound for pound
    I'll be at peace when they lay me down

    When they lay me down someday
    My soul will rise, then fly away
    This old world will turn around
    I'll be at peace when they lay me down

    This life isn't fair, it seems
    It's filled with tears and broken dreams
    There are no tears where I am bound
    And I'll be at peace when they lay me down

    When they lay me down some day
    My soul will rise, then fly away
    This old world will turn around
    I'll be at peace when they lay down

    When they lay me down some day
    My soul will rise and fly away
    This old world will turn around
    I'll be at peace when they lay me down

    When I was a child, I cried Writer/s: MARCHETTI
