Got dust on my piano
And dishes in the sink
Your side of the bed is cold
I haven't slept a wink
So I read your goodbye letter
To the face inside my drink
Lay me down and roll me out to sea

Got your picture in my wallet
And some pictures inmy mind
A packettfull of memories
I never thought I'd find
And it's rainin' like a monday
And the world seems so unkind
Lay me down and roll me out to sea

Lay me down roll me out to sea
Callin' on a mighty wave to cover me
Lay me down roll me out to sea
Heaven if you're ready shine your light on me

Now listen to my story cause I haven't told it all
I saw her with her new love
She turned to me and called
When they asked, ?°how ya' doin'?±
I coulda' crumbled like a wall
So lay me down and roll me out to sea

Lay me down roll me out to sea
Callin' on a mighty wave to cover me
Lay me down roll me out to sea
Heaven if you're ready shine your light on me
