"Lay me Down" as written by Michelle Branch, Greg Wells and Jessica Harp....
You let me in
'Cause after all
It seemed like the right thing to do

I closed my eyes
And let you fall
I wonder what you could possibly know
About breaking down that I don't

It's been awhile
Since I begged for
Anything but now I want more

So lay me down
I'm lonely
You don't understand me
And you'd never even try to
Anyway

I hear you say
It's not the same
I'm sorry
It's something I just can't explain

So shut your mouth
And hold me close
We both know
It's better than being alone

I don't mind
Killing time
As long as I can't see it in your eyes

If wanting you's so wrong then I'm wrong
I'll admit it
Time after time you'll realize
You don't mean it

    General CommentI don't think it's about a Booty Call. I think its about a couple that can admit to eachother that they can't even come close to getting along, so they just say fuck the fighting let's just Be.

    A correction to ALL of the above, now 100% error free:

    You let me in 'cause after all
    It seemed like the right thing to do
    Oh, oh
    I close my eyes and let you fall
    I wonder what you could possibly know
    About breaking down that I don't

    It's been a while since I begged for
    Anything, but now I want more
    So

    Lay me down I'm lonely
    Oh, oh
    You don't understand me
    And you never even tried to anyway

    I hear you say: It's not the same
    I'm sorry
    It's just something I just can't explain
    So shut your mouth and hold me close
    We both know it's better than being alone
    I don't mind killing time
    As long as I can see it in your eyes.

    Lay me down I'm lonely
    Oh, oh
    You don't understand me
    And never even tried

    If wanting you's wrong, then I'm wrong
    I'll admit it
    Time after time you realize
    You don't mean it

    If wanting you is wrong then I'm wrong I admit it
    Time after time you realize you don't mean it

    Lay me down I'm lonely
    Oh, oh
    You don't understand me
    And never even tried

    I'm sorry, lay me down
    I'm lonely, lay me down
    You don't understand me
    And you never even tried to anyway
