Spring sweet rhythm dance in my head
Slip into my lover's hands
Kiss me won't you kiss me now
And sleep I would inside your mouth
Don't be us too shy
For knowing it's no big surprise that
I will wait for you
I will wait for no one but you

Oh please lover lay down
Spend this time with me
Together share this smile
Lover lay down
Spend this time with me
Walk with me, walk with you
Hold my hand your hands
So much we have dreamed
and we were so much younger
Hard to explain that we are stronger
A million reasons life to deny
Let's toss them away
See you and me we
Lay down look see
She and he
By my lover's side
Together share this smile
Each other's tears to cry
Together share this smile
Lover lay down
Oh please oh please
Oh please lover lay down
Oh please lover lay down
And you weep
Lover lay down
Cause it's over
Lover lay down

Say love, say love, say love, say love, say love
Should I love you
Could you love me
Darling it's all the same
'Til we dance away
Chasing me all around
Leading me all around
Leading me all around in circles
Say...

    General CommentThis is mine and my ex's song also, but somehow even though we ended badly I can't feel sad when I listen to it. I always hae to feel optimistic about the future and all the love I have right now. That's why I love Dave... nothing can ruin it for me.

    General Commentlover lay down is inevitably about its title...true love...the yearning sensation of being able to think,dream,see,and kiss that one near-utopian feeling...so much has happened in the past...and there's no need to bring it back up...today is today...love once again. I love how anyone can relate to dmb's music.

    General CommentLonging for the one who you never need to say a word to, and yet they know everything you're thinking... its a beautiful thing when it happens, and horrible when it ends. This is one of the best songs about it staying strong.... on so many levels its insane...
    as usual dave completely takes the emotion into the song and makes so everyone out there can relate to it
