Lay It Down
by Nichole Nordeman

To every son and daughter
Wayward and long gone
The love of a father
Will leave the light on

I tried to throw you off track
A needle in the haystack
And I don't know how you found me
Why you let me come back?

'Coz it's a long way home
When all you're left to carry
Is a heart of stone
And the weight of most the world

And I'd like to
Lay it down a little
Lay it down a lot
I don't wanna hold it anymore

Lay it down in pieces
Or lay it down in whole
Everything I've carried on my own

Lay it down, lay it down
Lay it down, lay it down

I spent your money
Living on the fringes
But you threw a party for me
Invited all your big friends

And I have learned a little bit
About a heavy load
All that gleams and glitters
Is not worth its weight in gold

And I know I should
Lay it down a little
Lay it down a lot
I don't wanna hold it anymore

Lay it down in pieces
Or lay it down in whole
Everything I've carried on my own

Lay it down, lay it down
Lay it down, lay it down

Lay it down a little
Lay it down a lot
I don't wanna hold it anymore

Lay it down in pieces
Or lay it down in whole
Everything I've carried on my own

Lay it down, lay it down
Lay it down, lay it down
Lay it down, lay it down
Lay it down, lay it down

To every son and daughter
Wayward and long gone
