"Lay Down" as written by and Richard Joe On Sam Hollander....
There was a time now it's far away
I didn't know you, but I knew your name
We would talk, I got nothing to say
But hear me now
You're like an angel that is just for me
Bless your heart, let your mind go free
And it's too loud on the Earth today
So let's go home and lay down

And rest here in my arms
Now lay down
Lay down
The universe is ours, lay down
Lay down, lay down

Catch a teardrop, bleed the heart
Masquerade in a world apart
From a mass I got more to lose
I'm making a run
So blessed angel that is just for me
Catch a dream, there's a lot to see
But it's too loud on the Earth today
So let's go home and lay down

And rest here in my arms
Now lay down
Lay down
The universe is ours, lay down
Lay down, lay down

I never seen nobody move the way you do
Rocking steady and you know it too
You had to come down from heaven above
And tease the world
So listen good, cause I'm telling it straight
I don't got no more time to waste
I got a trip planned past the sun
Taking you home

Yeah, oh

To lay down
And rest here in my arms
Now lay down
Lay down, the universe is ours
Lay down, lay down, lay down

Oh, now I see
I bought a planet for you
I planned it for you my dear
There's no one above you
I purchased a room with a view
So we could fly away to outer space
We'll be alone just us two
And you know it's all for you
It's all for you
It's all for you
It's all for you
It's all for you

Oh, lay down
Mmm, lay down
Oh, lay down
Lay down
Oh, lay down

    General CommentI don't think I need to say this but any Live O.A.R. song is just about 100 times better than the studio version. The reason I like this band live so much better is because they vary each song so it doesn't sound exactly the same. This song in particular is a great song that many can relate to about "You're like an angel that is just for me," most people with significant others can see that thier significant other is like they said an angel that is just for me. "so blessed angel that is just for me." I love how he relates to the girl as his blessed angel.
