Come rest your head on my shoulder
It's alright, close your eyes
Curl up and hang upon my coat rack
The armor that you wear outside

Just let you bubble to the surface
Show me that childlike smile
Don't be afraid of your own purpose
Stay and be still for a while

Lay down your life
Lay down your life
Lay down your life with me
With me

Nuzzle tighter and demolish
The walls erected in your youth
Inside the rubble, spit and polished,
Stands the spirit of your truth

Shining brighter than the waters
With a tongue that speaks in flames
Your heart could not burn any hotter
Why does your passion cause you pain?

Lay down your life
Lay down your life
Lay down your life with me
With me

You're breathing slows and you are sleeping,
Wrapped around me with your wings
And I can see just what you're keeping
Inside your mind with all your things

You are fulfilled, you are at rest
You are weak-willed, but at your best
You are the safest that you've been
As long as you remember when

You are so full of raw desire.
You are alive, you feel inspired
You're thawing out, you're kicking in
You've wrapped into me through my skin

Where do you stop, and I begin?
Where do you stop, and I begin?
Where do you stop, and I begin?
Where do you stop, when will you

Lay down your life
Lay down your life
Lay down your life (x20

When will you
Lay down your life
Lay down your life
Lay down your life with me
With me
With me
