Daniel Kirkley – Lay It Down lyrics

I've been looking till my eyes are tired of looking
Listening till my ears are numb from listening
Praying till my knees are sore
From kneeling on the bedroom floor

I know that you know that my heart is aching
I'm running out of tears and my will is breaking
I don't think I can carry the burden
Of this anymore

'Cause all of my hopes and my dreams and my best laid plans
Are slowly slipping through my folded hands

So I'm gonna lay it down
I'm gonna learn to trust you know
What else can I do
Everything I am depends on you
And if the sun don't come back up
I know your love will be enough
So I'm gonna let it be
I'm gonna let it go
I'm gonna lay it down

I've been walking through this world like I'm barely living
Buried in the doubt of this hole I've been digging
But you're pulling me out
And I'm finally breathing in the open air

This room may be dark but I'm finally seeing
There's a new ray of hope and now I'm believing
That the past is past and the future's beginning
To look brighter now

'Cause all of my hopes and my dreams and my best laid plans
Are safe and secure when I place them in your hands
