Krauss, Alison - Lay Down Beside Me Lyrics




[John Waite:]
I've spent my life
Lookin for you
Findin' my way
Wasn't easy to do
But I knew there was you
All the while
And it's been worth
Every mile

So lay down beside me
Love me and hide me
And kiss all the hurtin'
Of this world away
Hold me so close
That I feel your heart beat
And don't ever wander away

[Alison Krauss:]
Mornings and evenings
All were the same
There was no music
Til I heard your name
I knew when I saw you smile
And now I can rest for a while

[Together:]
So lay down beside me
Love me and hide me
Kiss all the hurtin'
Of this world away
Hold me so close
That I feel your heart beat
And don't ever wander away

And hold me so close
That I feel your heart beat
And don't ever wander away

[she hums]
he sings
Love me and hide me

[both hum]
he sings
'Til I feel your heart beat

[both hum]

    LYRICS FOR “Lay Beside Me”

    I've spent my life
    Looking for you
    Finding my way
    Wasn't easy to do
    But I knew there was you
    All the while
    And it's been worth
    Every mile

    So, lay down beside me
    Love me and hide me
    And kiss all the hurtin'
    Of this world away
    Hold me so close
    That I feel your heart beat
    And don't ever wander away

    Mornings and evenings
    All were the same
    There was no music
    Till I heard your name
    I knew when I saw you smile
    And now I can rest for a while

    And hold me so close
    That I feel your heart beat
    And don't ever wander away

    Love me and hide me
    Till I feel your heart beat
