Lay My Burden Down Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Gonna lay my burden down
Lay my body in the ground
Cold clay against my skin
But I don't care at all
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
If I was cast off on the sea
Would you come and look for me
Or would you just let me sink
Beneath the waves so blue
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
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
Verse 8
When I sleep the angels sing
But I cannot hear a thing
Eyes close
Dreaming of the better days gone by
Verse 9
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
Verse 10
When I was young my momma would say
Well life is hard, but that's O.K.
If you can make it through the day
It's not that far
No, it's not that far
