"Lay Down" as written by and David Tench Natasha Bedingfield....
Speechless, but the answers in my mouth
Breathless, the emotions seeping out
Beyond my control
You spoke to my silence, and asked
Why so cold?

[Chorus]
You ask for peace, I give you war
While you let go, I hold too tightly
I take my aim, you hit the floor,
I'm not ready to,
Lay down my arms

Cracking, my defenses breaking down
The unraveling, of a rope I put around me
You wont take no for an answer

[Chorus]

I didn't know I was missing out, 'til you lost and I, I won
You made me realize my incompleteness alone
Can no longer live by candlelight
When you show me the sun

[Chorus]

    General CommentMmmh. I think there are several mistakes in the lyrics, e.g.
    "You spoke to my silence, 'Why so cold?'" in the first verse...
    and "You ask for peace, I give you war" in the chorus...
    and "I didn't know I was missing out, til you lost and I, I won / You made me realize my incompleteness alone"

    Anyway, right at this very moment, the song suits so perfectly to my situation.
    imo, it's about the relationship between two people, that are always fighting, and the one that's singing the song just can't give that up, continues to fight without wanting to ("Breathless, the emotions seeping out beyond my control"), although the other one is begging for peace.
