Lay You Down

Snapshot of heaven, walled paradise
Frozen sunlight –
Kiss me tender, kiss me twice
Cold winter morning, web on the ground
I’ll lay you down

Holes in my stockings, snagged in your smile
Stay forever –
I would go the extra mile
Hide from the bright lights, faraway town
I’ll lay you down

I’ll lay you down
I’ll lay you down, little darling,
Lay you down.

Timber of Eden, Whispering lust
Railway sleeper
With your blanket ivy dust
Freckles of daylight, golden and brown
I’ll lay you down

I’ll lay you down
I’ll lay you down, little darling,
Lay you down.

And they can’t touch us here
They come and go outside
Their sad and busy lives

The time is different here
It flows against the tide
And gently takes its time

It’s captivating here
We talk about it all
And try to understand

The world is softer here
The black beyond the wall
I’ll take your hand…

And lay you down
I’ll lay you down, little darling,
I’ll lay you down
I’ll lay you down, little darling,
Lay you down.
