lay them down

all your cares, all your troubles
What you bring to the table
Leave them here, lay them down

the expectations of others
Their demands for your comfort
Leave them here, lay them down

lay them down, let them go
I’ve been wanting you to know
You have found arms that are safe

All your hopes, all your dreams
All those “wish it were true” things
Leave them here, lay them down

Stories you have always told
Memories that you can’t let go
Leave them here, lay them down

lay them down, let them go
I’ve been wanting you to know
You have found arms that are safe
