You let me in
'Cause after all
It seemed like the right thing to do

I closed my eyes
And let you fall
I wonder what you could possibly know
About breaking down that I don't

It's been awhile
Since I begged for
Anything but now I want more

CHORUS:
So lay me down
I'm lonely [[hohh ohh]]
You don't understand me
And you'd never even try to
Anyway

I hear you say
It's not the same
I'm sorry
It's something I just can't explain

So shut your mouth
And hold me close
We both know
It's better than being alone

I don't mind
Killing time
As long as I can't see it in your eyes

CHORUS:
So lay me down
I'm lonely[[hohh ohh]]
You don't understand me
And you'd never even try

If wanting you's so wrong then I'm wrong
I'll admit it
Time after time you'll realize
You don't mean it

CHORUS:
So lay me down
I'm lonely[[hoo ohh]]
You don't understand me
And you'd never even try to
Anyway

I'm Sorry
Lay me down
Im lonely
Lay me down
You don't understand me
And you'd never even try to
Anyway
