Layla
Derek and the Dominos Lyrics


What'll you do when you get lonely
And nobody's waiting by your side?
You've been running and hiding much too long
You know it's just your foolish pride

Layla, you've got me on my knees
Layla, I'm begging, darling please
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind

I tried to give you consolation
When your old man had let you down
Like a fool, I fell in love with you
Turned my whole world upside down

Layla, you've got me on my knees
Layla, I'm begging, darling please
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind

Let's make the best of the situation
Before I finally go insane
Please don't say I'll never find a way
And tell me all my love's in vain

Layla, you've got me on my knees
Layla, I'm begging, darling please
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind

Layla, you've got me on my knees
Layla, I'm begging, darling please
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind

What'll you do when you get lonely
And nobody's waiting by your side?
You've been running and hiding much too long.
You know it's just your foolish pride.

Layla, you've got me on my knees.
Layla, I'm begging, darling please.
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind.

I tried to give you consolation
When your old man had let you down.
Like a fool, I fell in love with you,
Turned my whole world upside down.

Layla, you've got me on my knees.
Layla, I'm begging, darling please.
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind.

Let's make the best of the situation
Before I finally go insane.
Please don't say I'll never find a way
And tell me all my love's in vain.

Layla, you've got me on my knees.
Layla, I'm begging, darling please.
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind.

Layla, you've got me on my knees.
Layla, I'm begging, darling please.
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind.

It's like anger, hurt, guilt, frustration, love, admiration, and sorrow rolled into just one guitar bend. It's unexplainable.

hillary ilinsky

nicely put.

Damion Irving

You can only really fell it if you have experienced it. The question is, once finally got it, what do you do?

Rowan Smallbones

Awesome summation

Yoan Lima

Yeah man , indeed

Or otherwise, in the most optimistic lookout, sounds too if the girl that are you dedicating this song accepts your love, declares that she feels the same for you and then, you'll start living up (and enjoying of course) the romance. Everything depends on the mood of the man (or woman) that is listening this song. As a phrase commonly referred to Einstein - although he never said or coined that phrase - "Everything is relative, nothing is absolute"

No, Luiz look:
1970 (When the music was great): It's a good song.
2019 (When the music is not even music anymore):
THIS IS A MASTERPIECE
3050 (When real music won't even exist):
Who was the god that wrote this?

@Steve Eckstein I don't believe there was a Derek and Dom in 68. Eric was strumming with Cream

@Top Top If you believed in God you would not believe climate change. Who do you think controls weather?
