When I Lay Down Lyrics

They said - Lay lay down in the water, even though you don't believe All your sins will be forgiven, and your soul will be redeemed So I walked into the water, and I fell down to my knees, and I took out some insurance, and I bought a little peace

But when I lay down, I lied When I lay down, I lied

She said - Carling do you love me? And I said - Sure I do And I led her to believe me, as I proved that it was true Well, I let my body love her God knows I really tried And the comfort of it touched her, and her heart was satisfied

But when I lay down, I lied When I lay down, I lied

to make them happy and I lied so they would care I lied 'cause i was lonely and I lied 'cause i was scared I lied so some would leave me and I lied so some would stay I lied until I lied my life away

I dreamed my life was over and they laid me in my grave I was frightened of forever and the price I'd have to pay And I thought that God would hate me 'cause I'd lived my life in sin, but I felt the truth embrace me as heaven let me in

And when I lay down I lay down and cried
