"Lay Down" as written by Natalie Stewart, Darren T. Henson, Keith Isaiah Pelzer and Marsha Ambrosius....
Lay down, sleep my little darling
I'll be nothing when you're gone
Lay down just like in a coffin
Then I'll have nothing but a song
Could I leave you in a coffin for real
And just leave you in a church

Lay down
Leave you'll be lonely
I know I won't go
Lay down
Sleep you'll be lonely
I know I won't go
It's not my turn

Lay down, this pain will be long gone
With the absence of your breath
I know that you loved me
But I can't love you when you're dead
So I'll leave you in that coffin for God
And I'll leave you in the dirt

Lay down
Leave you'll be lonely
I know I won't go
Lay down
Sleep you'll be lonely
I know I won't go
Lay down before me
I know I won't go
It's not my turn

    General Commenti saw them live.
    it rock, so hard.
    they remind me of a young Black Sabbath.

    General Commentwow, i love how many people have posted useful interpretations. It seems pretty obvious but i could be completely wrong, on the surface i think it's about a man who's wife/girlfriend has died, but he's staying optimistic, that it's not his time to go, but he'll see her again some day.

    General CommentSerge, I disagree to a fault. It seems to me it's more likely that she's passed away, and he realizes that he can't dwell on her. He's still got life in him, so he's going to go on with his life and find something else to live for.

    General CommentI know this one isn't as optimistic but personally I think its about a girl he loved who he broke up with and he wishes she were dead
