lyrics

The backroad that’s laid out behind your house
Is a road I long to walk
Won’t you take me out through the cornfields
There ain’t no path to follow but the way that we feel
Lead me up through the mazes
I will trace your steps

Lay me down in the flower beds
Let us clear our souls
Rest our heavy heads
Lay me down like a sleepy child
Let me hold you near and breathe awhile

I’ll go with you
To where the stars shine bright
I’ll walk with you
Barefoot in our flight
Don’t need no shelter, we could be paupers
Our only comfort is the way that we feel
Chase me out through the valleys
To where we can catch our breath

Lay me down in the flower beds
Let us clear our souls
Rest our heavy heads
Lay me down like a sleepy child
Let me hold you near and breathe awhile

Lay me down, lay me down, lay me down

Let us tiptoe into the deep dark night
Let us disappear, be free from sight
Let us wander, let us understand
Underneath the stars, fill our empty hands

Lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
