Lay Me Down by Jewel Lay me down with the childrem Lay me down for I'm tired and I'm weary And it's been so long since last I slept - weak The Japanese carpet and my feather bed's too big The shower's too wide and the hands of your memory leave me cold Now you say you're leaving me That's fine if you do It's not the leaving that hurts It's remembering all the kisses, the sweet smiles, the sunsets All the times we made love If only you were dead then I'd know you were gone You were the good one who said time meant nothing Now you're gone - time's all I have left [The next line is completely unintelligible. It MIGHT be "With some guy's tongue making me feel fettered and abandoned" or it could be something completely different!] His cold hands on my thigh And I wake up the next morning and I'm hurting and I know that you're gone 'Cause that said he would teach you how to cry [?] Lay me down with the children Lay me down for I'm tired and weary But it's been so long since I slept - weak And it has been so long
