Lay Your Hands Lyrics

by Simon Webbe

Sometimes life can be a burden
Tryna stay one step ahead
I feel the world upon my shoulder each time
I'm standing out on the edge

And my hopes have all deserted me
Like they washed away in the sand
And it's hurting my pride, tryna survive
But I know I stand a chance

When you lay your hands
Oh yeah
'Cause it's the only thing I have that still makes sense

(Oh baby, when I'm calling out)
Give me love and affection
Keep telling me, show me the way

(Oh, if you see me falling down)
Lift me up from the shadows
Will you take me away to a better place?

(And when I'm in my darkest hour)
You're by my side to turn the tide
Until the suffering fades

When life is getting me down
Getting me down, I'm close to defeat
Come and lay your hands on me

Feel this road is getting longer now
And I'm too far away from home
Still I gotta keep on moving on
But I can't do it on my own

Baby, keep my head above water
Help me swim for my life
'Cause the game is getting harder
The strain is gettin' stronger
And I can only face the fight

When you lay your hands
Oh yeah
'Cause it's the only thing I have that still makes sense

(Oh baby, when I'm calling out)
Give me love and affection
Keep telling me, show me the way

(Oh, if you see me falling down)
Lift me up from the shadows
Will you take me away to a better place?

(And when I'm in my darkest hour)
You're by my side to turn the tide
Until the suffering fades

When life is getting me down
Getting me down, I'm close to defeat
Come and lay your hands on me

'Til I'm healed again
Rediscovered my strengths
Those bitter blues are gone
Oh, gone

(Oh baby, when I'm calling out)
Give me love and affection
Keep telling me, show me the way

(Oh, if you see me falling down)
Lift me up from the shadows
Will you take me away to a better place?

(And when I'm in my darkest hour)
You're by my side to turn the tide
Until the suffering fades

When life is getting me down
Getting me down, I'm close to defeat
Come and lay your hands on me

Come, lay your hands on me, on me, yeah yeah
Lay your hands, lay your hands
Come, lay your hands on me
Lay your hands, lay your hands
