I raised my head and set myself
In the eye of the storm, in the belly of a whale
My spirit stood on solid ground
I'll be at peace when they lay me down

When I was a child, I cried
Until my needs were satisfied
My needs have grown up, pound for pound
I'll be at peace when they lay me down

When they lay me down someday
My soul will rise, then fly away
This old world will turn around
I'll be at peace when they lay me down

This life isn't fair, it seems
It's filled with tears and broken dreams
There are no tears where I am bound
And I'll be at peace when they lay me down

When they lay me down some day
My soul will rise, then fly away
This old world will turn around
I'll be at peace when they lay down

When they lay me down some day
My soul will rise and fly away
This old world will turn around
I'll be at peace when they lay me down

When I was a child, I cried
