I'll never walk away from this
I'll pull you closely to my chest
With a fathers breaking heart
I'll walk you one last time into the dark

There are no reasons to explain
A silent killer bears no blame
There are no answers though I pray
I die though this is not my grave

And I lay you down
Lay you down

I'll carry you child to a place where you can rest
Sweet tears that seep into the linens
As I put you down to bed
It tears me into pieces
Watching you fight to fill your lungs with breath
There's no need to struggle
There's no need to struggle

I lay you down
Lay you down
Don't you cry no more
I'll lay me down
Lay me down

Well I'm not ready
I'm not ready for this
I'm not ready, I'm not ready for this

There are no branches from this soil
My broken spirit steals my voice
I have no secrets to my name
Only the shadows hide my shame
And so if I lift you upon my shoulder
Inside a splintered wooden chest
To Avalon we line the streets
I only hope that you'll finally rest

I'm not ready for this
I'll lay you down
Lay you down
Don't you cry no more
I'll lay me down
Lay me down
I'd gladly lay me down
Lay me down
