I'd Love To Lay You Down Lyrics

by Conway Twitty

There's a lot of ways of sayin'
What I wanna say to you
There's songs and poems and promises
And dreams that might come true

But I won't talk of starry skies
Or moonlight on the ground
I'll come right out and tell you
I'd just love to lay you down

Lay you down and softly whisper
Pretty love words in your ear
Lay you down and tell you all the things
A woman loves to hear
I'll let you know how much it means
Just havin' you around
Oh, darlin', how I'd love to lay you down

There's so many ways your sweet love's
Made this house into a home
You've got a way of doing
Little things that turn me on

Like standin' in the kitchen
In your faded cotton gown
With your hair all up in curlers
I still love to lay you down

Lay you down and softly whisper
Pretty love words in your ear
Lay you down and tell you all the things
A woman loves to hear
I'll let you know how much it means
Just havin' you around
Oh, darlin', how I'd love to lay you down

When a whole lot of Decembers
Are showin' in your face
Your auburn hair has faded
And silver takes it's place

You'll be just as lovely
And I'll still be around
And if I can't I know that
I'd still love to lay you down

Lay you down and softly whisper
Pretty love words in your ear
Lay you down and tell you all the things
A woman loves to hear
I'll let you know how much it means
Just havin' you around
Oh, darlin', how I'd love to lay you down

Lay you down and softly whisper
Pretty love words in your ear
Lay you down and tell you all the things
My woman loves to hear
I'll let you know how much it means
Just havin' you around
Oh, darlin', how I love to lay you down

Lay you down and softly whisper
Pretty love words in your ear
Lay you down and tell you all the things
My woman loves to hear
I'll let you know how much it means
Just havin' you around
