"Layla [Unplugged Version]" as written by and Eric Patrick/gordon Clapton....
What'll you do when you get lonely
And nobody's waiting by your side?
You've been running and hiding much too long.
You know it's just your foolish pride.

Layla, you've got me on my knees.
Layla, I'm begging, darling please.
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind.

I tried to give you consolation
When your old man had let you down.
Like a fool, I fell in love with you,
Turned my whole world upside down.

Layla, you've got me on my knees.
Layla, I'm begging, darling please.
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind.

Let's make the best of the situation
Before I finally go insane.
Please don't say we'll never find a way
And tell me all my love's in vain.

Layla, you've got me on my knees.
Layla, I'm begging, darling please.
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind.

Layla, you've got me on my knees.
Layla, I'm begging, darling please.
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind.

    General CommentI feel that this song is about a girl who's father hasn't been in her life/by her side and she has found a fella and she isn't sure how to handle a real because she hasn't had a male counterpart to help in what she needs in a man, he (her lover/boyfriend) is trying his best to keep her but is finding it hard to not go crazy
