Lay Me Down

Lay Me Down Words and Music by George Huntley from The Connells album Fun and Games

Sing to me sweetley as I turn sour
Lay me down, remembering
That the wind and the rain
Played a part in that dreadful hour

And so as I pass, I too feel the power
Laying here under the trees
Where three days before
I danced in a summer shower

Chorus:
And she said “There, look through the trees,
The sun always shines, always on time,
Dare, rest on your knees
And in a prayer, follow me there.”

Softly I slumber as I turn to powder
Blowing out over the sea
The wind and the rain billow me
Though I’m no longer fire

A bird is alone as the wind takes me higher
Now I don’t know where I am
The bird can’t hear me
As I shout out even louder

(repeat chorus)

La la la la…

(repeat chorus)
