Eric Benet – Lay It Down lyrics

I can tell you're feeling uninspired
I can see you've lost most of your fire
I don't see the will or the desire
I can't hold the hand that won't reach for me
I don't know your struggles or your reasons
And I don't know the names of all your demons
I'm just a friend who knows what you've been needing
Someone to share your burden, help set you free

So come and lay it down, you can lay it all on me
Come lay it down, put your mind at ease
Just lay it down, you can lay it all on me
Come lay it down

Baby everybody's trying to climb their mountain
And don't nobody know the way to go round it
If there's a road that's travel free, no one has found it
So don't ever feel like no one knows you're suffering

Everybody has a load that they must carry
To go it alone is so unneccessary
Don't let your pride deny this loving gift to cherish
Cause I'm here for you and any healing that may bring

So come and lay it down, lay it all on me
Lay it down, let me put your mind at ease
Lay it down, come lay it, lay it all on me
Come lay it down

Funny when this pain is over, the light at the end I'll see
You will see, one day you will leave the shadow
Come lay all your burdens on me

Lay it down, you can lay it all on me, lay it all on me
Lay it down, put your mind at ease
Come lay it down, come lay it down
Put your mind at ease, lay it down
It's gonna be alright
We're gonna work it out
