Lay Me Down Lyrics

by Cyndi Lauper

An empty street, a quiet smile
Without steady feet, you know the reckless kind
Keep coming, coming back to the same old place
With that wild eyed stare up in your face

Lay me down, let me down
In a big old town
Lay me down, let me down
In a big old town

He must have lost his soul when he found the rent
He wrestles with control, still hasn't pinned it yet
Once in, once in a while lose that cigarette
There's always some strange smile underneath his breath

Lay me down, let me down
(Lay me down)
In a big old town
(Lay me down)
Lay me down, let me down
(Lay me down)
In a big old town

Passion's fist against a wall, the crush of a kiss, the rise and fall
Take me there, take me there to that wounded sound
It's just love's despair gone and hit the ground

Lay me down, let me down
(Lay me down)
In a big old town
(Lay me down)
Lay me down, let me down
(Lay me down)
In a big old town

Lay me down, let me down
(Lay me down)
(Lay me down)
(Lay me down)
Lay me down, let me down
(Lay me down)

Lay me down, let me down
(Lay me down)
Lay me down, let me down
(Lay me down)
Lay me down, let me down
(Lay me down)
Lay me down, let me down
(Lay me down)
