"Lay It Down" as written by Donald Earle Degrate, Joe Perry, Steven Tyler and Marty Fredricksen....
Ruby red, her lips were on fire
A do me with a kiss, if you please
Tell me what your sweet heart desires
Tell me how you want it to be

'Cause if it's love you want
Then you won't mind a little tenderness
That sometimes is so hard to find

Lay it down, lay it down
Make it alright
Lay it down, lay it down
I'll hold you so tight
Lay it down
Oh, before the morning light
It's gonna be alright

Oh, lay it down
Come and lay it down tonight

Tell me how you feel when we make love
Tell me is it real or just make believe
You will never know what'chor made of
'Til you open up your heart to receive
'Cause if the love you got that same old crime
We're talkin' tenderness that's so hard to find
And I'm gettin' behind you

Lay it down, lay it down
Make it alright
Lay it down, lay it down
I'll hold you so tight
Lay it down
Yeah, before the morning light
It's gonna be alright

Oh, lay it down
Come and lay it down tonight

Do you remember them times talkin' in your sleep
With a pocket full of promises you never could keep
From your best friends lover you dreamt about then
When you pullin' up the covers the voices in your head

Say if you want it bad
Don't ever let it slip away

'Cause if it's love you want and tenderness, yeah

Lay it down, lay it down
Make it alright
Lay it down, lay it down
I'll hold you so tight
Lay it down

Oh, before the morning light
It's gonna be alright

Oh, lay it down
Gonna lay it down tonight
Gonna come around tonight
You gotta lay it down

    General Commentit's a great song whethere it's real aerosmith t o you or not...the point is to discuss the meaning.

    Which I think the meaning is obvious...sex, but he sings about it in a sweet way & it's awesome.
