Lay down with me

Lay down with me

 

And read me like a book

See the gaps of all the words you took

The pages torn, the things unsaid

The paper worn, the ink I bled

 

Lay down with me

 

And let me hear you like a song

Listen to the chords I struck all wrong

The beat that’s off, the notes you skipped

The baseline cough, the coda ripped

 

Come walk with me

 

And sail me like a ship

Secure the ropes that we let slip

The leakage fix, the anchor lift

Our cargos mix, the lifeboats set adrift
