What'll you do when you get lonely
And nobody's waitin' by your side?
You've been runnin' an' hidin' much too long
You know it's just your foolish pride

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

I tried to give you consolation
When your own 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 beggin', darlin' please
Layla, darlin', won't you ease my worried mind

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

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

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