VERSE ONE

Yeah, if I could show you You
You wouldn’t be what you choose
You wouldn’t turn yourself out
Just so you could feel the hold
Mix the rain with the dirt and use the mud for the mold
Oh, come on, baby girl, please don’t believe what they told you
In your weakness I’m made strong
So rest your head on my shoulder
I’ll light the way to better days so you don’t have to walk the shoulder

The seconds turn to minutes into hours devoured
And the showers pour inside you turning seeds into flowers
Listen to the whispers
So there won’t be any shoutin’
The secret’s kept between us
There won’t be any outtin’

CHORUS

So don’t say anything…

When you lay down
I’ll bring you the water
When you lay down
I’ll bring you the water

VERSE TWO

I’m here to help you
Not dispel you
The window’s open so go out it
I’ve overcome this world
So be still and hear the silence
A child of light and not of darkness
Here’s the keys to your palace
Was done is secret now it’s shouted
You’re adopted, no more sobbin’
Wipe the tears from your eyes
No more secrets, no more lies
Your cup runneth over
No more emptiness inside
A little faith is all you need in what will be will be
And you’ll be taken to the places you just thought you’d never see

Yes it is that easy
You get to choose your destiny
They just didn’t choose to tell you
So they could use you for their deeds

REPEAT CHORUS

When You Lay Down
