Lay Down (Candles in the Rain)
by Meredith Brooks



[Chorus:]
Lay down, lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown
Lay down, lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

We were so close there was no room
We bled inside each others' wounds
We all had caught the same disease
And we all sang the songs of peace

[Chorus]

What if I told you were stupid, destructive, soulless
Callous, murderous, malignant, belligerent, ignorant?
Would you believe me, would you like that
Or would you prove me wrong and fight back?
I'd like to take the sunshine right from the sky
And let it shine on you through my eyes
You see, we're all in the same boat trying to float
So everybody grab a oar, we can make it to shore

[Chorus]

We were so close there was no room
We bled inside each others' wounds
We all had caught the same disease
And we all sang the songs of peace

Some came to sing
Some came to pray
Some came to keep the dark away
So raise the candles high
'Cause if you don't, we could stay
Black against the night
So raise them higher again
And if you do, we could stay dry against the rain

[Chorus]
