Lay down your head and weep mama
Lay down next to me
Till you cross the borders of sleep mama
Lay down next to me
Wish no words of sorrow
Nor whisper words of spite
Let the darkness in your heart
Melt into this night

Oh-oh Never Before, Never Before did it break like that
Oh-oh Never Before, Never Before did it feel so bad

Drink some more of my wine mama
Take some more of my bread
There's a million songs to be sung
But not a word to be said
If I call on the angel of mercy
If I call on the angel of light
I'm way outa line but there ain't much time
Storm gonna break tonight

Lay down your head and weep mama
Lay down next to me
Till you cross the borders of sleep mama
Lay down next to me
Send a prayer up above to the pure white dove
Flying so high
I think the angel of mercy
Must have heard you cry
