Lay My Burden Down Lyrics

Gonna lay my burden down

Gonna lay my body in the ground

Cold clay against my skin

But I don't care at all

Can't seem to find my piece of mind

So with the earth I'll lay entwined

Six feet underground

My feet are warm and dry

When I get to the other side

I'll put your picture way up high

But I'm not coming back to you

It's just too far

If I was cast off on the sea

Would you com and look for me

Or would you just let me sink

Beneath the waves so blue

What if I had learned to fly

Fly all night till day drew nigh

Touch down upon a branch and

Scan the crowd for you

When I touch my feet on the land

I'll kiss your lips and take you in

But you know I'm not here to stay

It's just too far

Darling can't you hear me cry

My bones are broke

My tongue is tied

The moon is swaying back and forth

Against the navy sky

Is all I can see

My body is trembling on my knees

Just have a little mercy on me

Run away and hide

When I sleep the angels sing

But I cannot hear a thing

Eyes close

Dreaming of better days gone by

When I wake the trumpets play

And I'm standing at the gates

Fall down and joy

I know my race has just been won

When I was young my momma would say

Well live is hard, but that's OK

If you can make it through the day

It's not that far

No, it's not that far
