Allen Stone - Lay It Down Lyrics




Wanna be the first thing you reach for in the morning
And the last thing you put down at night
Want my heart to be the only thing you're chargin'
Search for me frantically when I'm out of sight
Is it too much to ask?
Is it too much to ask?

Lay it down
Lay it down
You can finish with your searchin'
I am waiting to be found
Lay it down
Lay it down
Lay it down

Keep me close enough to fit inside your pocket
Let me see inside the windows to your heart
If you're lookin' for some love, let me unlock it
When you need another chance, we can restart
Is it too much to ask?
Don't let this moment pass

Lay it down
Lay it down
You can finish with your searchin'
I am waiting to be found
Lay it down
Lay it down

Lookin' through the cracks of a faded glass
Waving at the world while your life goes passin' by (wastin' time)
Wake up on the side of reality
Open up your eyes and finally breathe

Lay it down
Lay it down
You can finish with your searchin'
I am waiting to be found
Lay it down
Lay it down
You won't find another version
That will always be around
Lay it down
Lay it down
If there's one thing that is certain
It's in front of you right now
Lay it down
Lay it down

  42. Remayn Official

    Anyone know what tuning the guitar is in? Would love to learn this version

    Cody Keller

    Remayn Official pretty sure it’s standard.

    Davide Grody

    Standard tuning. Here's what I'm hearing (more or less):

    Verse:
    C#m7 - x424xx
    B - x244xx-
    G#m7 - 4x44xx
    F#m7 - 2x44xx


    Pre-Chorus ("Is it too much to ask?" x2):
    A - x7765x
    B - x9987x

    Chorus:
    E - 012200
    G#7 - 4x45(5)x
    A - x7765x *on the second chorus, he shifts the positions of this A & Am into basic open chords, i.e. 002220, 001220)
    Am - x7755x
    E - 012200
    B - x9987x
    Am - x7755x ***(He skips this Am when going into the bridge)


    Bridge ("Lookin' through the cracks..."):
    Am11 - 5x553x
    Asus - 557755
    E - 012200 (with a hammer on/off 2nd fret 3rd string to turn it into an Esus for flair)
    Am11 - 5x553x
    Asus - 557755
    B - x9987x

    On the last chorus he loops the first four chords (E, G#7, A, Am), while he lets his voice fly into the high heavens, and then brings it back down with
    E - 012200
    B - x244xx-
    Am - x7755x
    E - 012200

    Note: I have never taken a music theory class (aside from searching YouTube videos), so if any theory geeks out there feel like correcting my labels or what I'm hearing, please do so.

    Remayn Official

    Bless you for writing all those notes out! Much appreciated!

    It felt like a lower tuning to me, but I guess I’m hearing it wrong. When he sings ‘morning’ that bass note sounded lower than an E to me, but hey ho!

  43. Tiffany Nicholson

    Thank you

  44. 8ightfeettall

    This is gold

  45. Paige Sew

    Chills.

  46. BeatlesandStones

    One in a million this bloke, not many possess such a talent both musically and songwriting. Very very special.
