Sam Smith – Lay Me Down (Live on SNL)

Lyrics:

Yes, I do, I believe
That one day I will be where I was
Right there, right next to you
And it’s hard, the days just seem so dark
The moon, the stars are nothing without you

Your touch, your skin,
Where do I begin?
No words can explain the way I’m missing you
Deny this emptiness, this hole that I’m inside
These tears, they tell their own story

You told me not to cry when you were gone
[Regular version:] But the feeling’s overwhelming, they’re much too strong
[Acoustic version:] But the feeling’s overwhelming, it’s much too strong

Can I lay by your side, next to you, you
And make sure you’re alright?
I’ll take care of you,
And I don’t want to be here if I can’t be with you tonight

I’m reaching out to you
Can you hear my call? (who’s to say you won’t hear me?)
This hurt that I’ve been through
I’m missing you, missing you like crazy

You told me not to cry when you were gone
[Regular version:] But the feeling’s overwhelming, they’re much too strong
[Acoustic version:] But the feeling’s overwhelming, it’s much too strong

Can I lay by your side, next to you, you
And make sure you’re alright?
I’ll take care of you
And I don’t wanna be here if I can’t be with you tonight

Lay me down tonight, lay me by your side
Lay me down tonight, lay me by your side

Can I lay by your side, next to you, you
[Acoustic version ends here]
And make sure you’re alright?
I’ll take care of you
And I don’t wanna be here if I can’t be with you tonight

Be still

           That the mind 

            is in

                      abysmal stillness…

            Nothing in all

                creation is 

                so like god

                   as

                   Stillness.
