Lay Me Down by Sam Smith

What do you think?

‘Lay Me Down’ was written by Sam Smith when he experienced some unrequited love. It is a love song about missing someone and wishing you could be with them again.

The film clip shows what looks to be a funeral in a cathedral, but it changes to become a marriage between two men with all the guests celebrating. 

Lyrics

Yes I do, I believe
That one day I will be, where I was
Right there, right next to you
And it’s hard, the days just seem so dark
The moon, and the stars, are nothing without you
Your touch, your skin, where do I begin?
No words can explain, the way i’m missing you
Deny this emptiness, this hole that i’m inside
These tears, they tell their own story
You told me not to cry when you were gone
But the feeling’s overwhelming, it’s much too strong
Can I lay by your side, next to you, you
And make sure you’re alright
I’ll take care of you,
And I don’t want to be here if I can’t be with you tonight
 
 
I’m reaching out to you
Can you hear my call 
This hurt that I’ve been through
I’m missing you, missing you like crazy
Can I lay by your side, next to you, to you
And make sure you’re alright
I’ll take care of you,
And I don’t want to be here if I can’t be with you tonight
Lay me down tonight, lay me by your side
Lay me down tonight
Lay me by your side
Can I lay by your side, next to you, you
