Lay me,
L-L-lay me
L-L lay me
L-L lay me down
L-L lay me
L-L lay me
L-L lay me
L-L lay me down
L-L lay me
L-L lay me
L-L lay me
L-L lay me down

I’ve been weak, things get tough
Sometimes my knees can barely hold me up (yeah)
I’m no fool, but instead
You gotta walk a mile ’til you’re outta my head

Going in, tasty luck
Take a little bit and baby don’t you give up
Get your life[?] , give a damn
You gotta make a move to show me where we can stand (yeah)

Lay me down in darkness
Tell me what you see
Love is where the heart is
Show me I’m the one, tell me I’m the one that you need (come on)

Lay me down in darkness
Tell me what you see
Love is where the heart is
Show me I’m the one, tell me I’m the one that you need (come on) (repeat x2)

[music interlude]

[Nile’s riff]

I got the time it’ll be allright yeah, I got the time you need (yeah)

we all bleed, bleed the same
If you get the picture leave it out of the frame (yeah)
In the now, take a chance
make a mess and don’t forget that life is a dance

Going in, tasty luck
take a little bit and baby don’t you give up
Get your life[?] give a damn
You gotta make a move to show me where we can stand

Lay me down in darkness
tell me what you see
love is where the heart is
show me I’m the one, tell me I’m the one that you need (come on)

Lay me down in darkness
tell me what you see
love is where the heart is
show me I’m the one, tell me I’m the one that you need

[music interlude]

Show me I’m the one tell me I’m the one that you need x 4

Mmmm mmmm yeah Tell me baby baby tell me that you need, I got the time it’ll be allright, I got the time that you need (Come On)

[music interlude -pogo!!]

la-la-lay me
La-la-lay me down
la-la-lay me
la-la-lay me down
La-la-lay me

[with thanks to @SXMGlambert @lilybop2010 @Kathryn17  especially for the lively debate over “interpreting Adam’s Planet Fierce accent in the tricky parts”  before we got the HQ version!]

For some discussion about the great lyric debate 🙂 see Lilybop’s page here http://lilybop2012.blogspot.com.au/2013/07/some-lay-me-down-lyrics-by-malcolm.html (showing her lyrics & differences to mine) where she also links to Kathryn’s version which was different again from both of ours LOL Honestly, I’ve interpreted a lot of Adam’s song lyrics from random audio & this has caused more trouble than most ROFL
