Lay Down

I haven’t heard this song in years and years.  I’ve always really loved it and I love her passion in singing it.  Just want to pass it along.

Lay Down (Candles in the Rain)
Melanie with The Edwin Hawkins Singers

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