Back to Lay Me Down lyrics

Lay Me Down

You see me howling at the moon
It's what you taught me to do (Hmm)
I'm chasing stars just to get back closer to you

You see the ashes by the fire
The only life that I knew (Hmm)
I touched a flame just to get back closer to you

Show me the way,
I've done traveling too far
With the cross on my back
And the hole in my heart
Now you say
There's no love to be found
When six feet down
And I thought that'd make me closer to you!

Why don't you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Won't you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Closer to you!
Why don't you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Won't you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Closer to you!

You hear me beating at the door
What else you want me to do
Ooh, you got me crawling up the walls to get closer to you
Yes you do!

Show me the way,
I've done traveling too far
With the cross on my back
And the hole in my heart
Now you say
There's no love to be found
When six feet down
And I thought that'd make me closer to you!

Why don't you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down?
Won't you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Closer to you!
Why don't you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down?
Won't you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down?
Closer to you!

[Ohh ohh oh] x2
Closer to you
[Ohh ohh oh] x2

Sow me the way
I've done traveling too far
With the cross on my back
And the hole in my heart
Now you say
There's no love to be found
When six feet down
And I thought that I'd be closer to you!
Closer to you

[Ooh oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh] Repeated
[Closer to you]
[Closer to you]
Closer to you!

Why don't you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Won't you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Closer to you!
Why don't you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Won't you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Closer to you!
Why don't you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Won't you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Closer to you!
Why don't you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Won't you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Closer to you!
