Lyrics

 

I'm sooo done 
prancing around 
The bloom is off the roses uptown 
Can I lay my head down here? 


All those 
bright lights went dim 
My friends are gone 
my marker’s called in 
Can I lay my heart down here 

Can I lay my heart down 
Can I lay my heart down 
Can I lay my heart down here? 

 

thin ice breaking apart

 


I’ve been caught up 
in my own lies 
But I’ve 
finally opened my tired eyes
Can I lay my heart down here? 


I have 
lost every fight 
I'm stumblin’ around 
in the cold cruel night 
Can I lay my heart down here? 

Can I lay my heart down 
Can I lay my heart down 
Can I lay my heart down here? 

All my life I’ve never fit in 
All my life I never quite win 
All my life, I’ve been wanting, needing 
Some one to say: 


“Ahh Honey, I know. 
I know just how ya’ feel 
Ahh Honey come on 
come on home with me. 

Lay your heart down here”.
