Lay Me Down [Acoustic Version]
by Sam Smith



Yes, I do, I believe that one day I will be where I was,
right there, right next to you
And it's hard, the days just seem so dark,
the moon and the stars, are nothing without you
Your touch, your skin, where do I begin?
No words can explain the way I'm missing you
deny this emptiness, this hole that I'm inside
These tears, they tell their own story
Told me not to cry when you were gone
But the feeling's overwhelming, it's much too strong

Can I lay by your side?
Next to you, you?
And make sure you're alright
I'll take care of you
I don't want to be here if I can't be with you tonight

I'm reaching out to you
Can you hear my call?
This hurt that I've been through
I'm missing you, missing you like crazy
You told me not to cry when you were gone
but the feeling's overwhelming, it's much too strong

Can I lay by your side?
next to you, you?
And make sure you're all right
I'll take care of you
And I don't want to be here if I can't be with you tonight
Lay me down tonight, lay me by your side
Lay me down tonight, lay me by your side

Can I lay by your side?
next to you, you?
