Lay It Down

Lay It Down

Kim Richey

Have another drink, yeah, maybe dull the pain
Take another hit but that don't ever stop the rain
Smile away the hours, you're never really there
You're safe behind the knowledge they don't know how much you care

Yeah, but don't that stuff get awful heavy
You know it occurs to me
You're gonna break your heart, yeah, if you don't leave it be
Lay it down, lay it all the way down, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

Leave the words unspoken, bite your tongue instead
Ah, but keep the fire smoking, keep it humming in your head
Hold another grudge, oh, tight against your chest
Yeah, note another slight so you can add it to the rest

Yeah, but don't that stuff get awful heavy
You know it occurs to me
You're gonna break your heart, yeah, if you don't leave it be
Lay it down

The truth leaks out a little every time
You tell another desperate joke

Yeah, but don't that stuff get awful heavy
You know it occurs to me
You're gonna break your heart, yeah, if you don't leave it be
Lay it down, lay it all the way down, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Ooh, ooh, ooh
