I was tired, gave you reason to resent me
Turned your back on my touch, though my heart gave it gently
My energy depleted, it was you who stole my verve
You’ve got me so defeated but you blame me, oh the nerve

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray your scorn won’t cut too deep
If I should cry, please don’t forsake
I pray your love you will not fake
Lay me Down

Your sadness left you cold, you sought someone else’s heat
The low pressure of my pulse, no longer made your heart beat
You warmed yourself with new love, I was left to cool
Banished from your thoughts, now I play your fool

Now you lay me down to sleep
You say you’re bored, my soul weeps
I cannot lie nor deny we ache
We slowly die from our mistakes
Lay me down

You’re my nightmare, I’m awoken
Silent screams of you unspoken
I dream of you with another
No love lost, I’ve lost my lover
I won’t hold hope that you’ll be back
But I’m still an insomniac

I pray you’ll stay but I know you love the chase
The fantasy of them hastens your heart’s pace
The thoughts that blow your mind don’t involve my face
Hungry for someone else grown tired of my taste

Now you lay with them to sleep
I stay away, you cut too deep
In bed I lie, lonely and awake
I know we’ve died, this is our wake
Lay me down Lay me down
