LAY DOWN (CANDLES IN THE RAIN)
Words and Music by Melanie Safka

Lay down, lay it down , lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown
Lay down, lay it down , lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

We were so close, there was no room
We bled inside each others wounds
We all had caught the same disease
And we all sang the songs of peace

Lay down, lay it down , lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown
Lay down, lay it down , lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

So raise the candles high
Cause if you don’t
We could stay black against the night
Oh raise them higher again
And if you do
We could stay dry against the rain

Lay down, lay it down , lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown
Lay down, lay it down , lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

We were so close, there was no room
We bled inside each others wounds
We all had caught the same disease
And we all sang the songs of peace
Some came to sing
Some came to pray
Some came to keep the dark away

So raise the candles high
Cause if you don’t
We could stay black against the sky
Oh raise them higher again
And if you do
We could stay dry against the rain

Lay down, lay it down , lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown
Lay down, lay it down , lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown
