about

Do you feel like you work too hard? Sometimes wish it would just stop so you could put your feet up?

lyrics

i want to go slow, i want to slow down
been running so fast can’t keep my feet on the ground
i need a break from my life
i am working on overtime, time and a half,
when can i stop and lay down my head

CHORUS
Let me lay down beside the cool water
Let me lay down on the cold hard ground
Lay myself down on a bed full of feathers
When can I lay down and rest
Let me lay down take my rest

i’m getting off this train, before it hits the next stop
i gotta stop moving or things are gonna get dangerous
I wanna sit down
my head is aching just from holding it up
when can i stop and lay down my head

CH

BRIDGE
Memory lingers of when we connected
Right here beside one another what pleasure
To touch and to taste and to talk in real time
Let us lay down you and I

Let me lay down beside the cool water
Let me lay down on the cold hard ground
Lay myself down on a bed full of feathers
I hear the horns honking, the cars racing by


I want to live high i want to live low
sit down and give some time to the people i know
let the light and the love filter into my eyes till they
burn with the lust and the lift of this life
it is long, it is short
when can i lay down my head

Let me lay down beside the cool water
Let me lay down on the cold hard ground
Lay myself down on a bed full of feathers
When can I lay down and rest
When can I lay down and rest
When can I lay down and rest
Let me lay down take my rest
