Will you lay me down, will you lay me down?
Will you lay me down inside heavens walls
Where every soul is a setting sun?

Will you take my hand, will you take my hand?
Will you take my hand down to the waters' edge
Where every sin has been washed away?

But I can't run if I can't walk
And I won't love if I can't stop
Every minute the pressure drops
From your first breath 'til your heart stops

Will you let them pass, will you let them pass?
Will you let them pass across this killing floor
Where every shadow is cast in stone?

But I can't run if I can't walk
And I won't love if I can't stop
Every minute the pressure drops
From your first breath 'til your heart stops

Carry me, carry me
But you take, take, it's never enough
You just take, take, it's never enough
You just take, take every part of me, all of me
