Alison Krauss – Lay Down Beside Me Lyrics

(feat. John Waite)

[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]
