Lyrics

Lay down, lay down, lay it all down. Let your white birds smile. At the ones who stand and frown.

Lay down, lay down, lay it all down. Let your white birds smile. At the ones who stand and frown.

We were so close, there was no room. We bled inside each other's wounds. We all had caught the same disease. And we all sang the songs of peace.

Lay down, lay down, lay it all down. Let your white birds smile. At the ones who stand and frown.

Lay down, lay down, lay it all down. Let your white birds smile. At the ones who stand and frown.

So raise candles high. 'Cause if you don't we could stay black against the night. Oh, raise them higher again. And if you do we could stay dry against the rain.

Lay down, lay down, lay it all down. Let your white birds smile. At the ones who stand and frown.

Lay down, lay down, lay it all down. Let your white birds smile. At the ones who stand and frown.

We were so close, there was no room. We bled inside each other's wounds. We all had caught the same disease. And we all sang the songs of peace.

Some came to sing, some came to pray. Some came to keep the dark away.

So raise candles high. 'Cause if you don't we could stay black against the sky. Oh, oh, raise them higher again. And if you do we could stay dry against the rain.

Lay down, lay down, lay it all down. Let your white birds smile. At the ones who stand and frown.

Lay down, lay down, lay it all down. Let your white birds smile. At the ones who stand and frown.

Lay down, lay down, lay it all down. Let your white birds smile. At the ones who stand and frown.

Lay down, lay down, lay it all down.
