Words & Music by Jessie Sparks

i don’t’ understand why we are living in fear
& i don’t understand why such danger lives here
we can do all we can & there’s much we can do
but you can’t save yourself when hate chooses you

so pull at my hair, bruise all my skin
knock me out cold, i wont give in
for the hurt & the pain we can massage away
& only get strong from the memories that stay

lay down & let light wash over you
lie still & let it soak into you
breathe deep & feel the love
lay down & let light wash over you
lie still & let it soak into you
breathe deep & feel the love

i don’t want to run, we can’t seem to hide
from all of the anger that falls from our sky
so i’m painting my feet the color of peace
& maybe the mad will tread where i’ve been

so bind my hands, break all my bones
lock me away, i am not alone
for all that is sore will heal over time
& all that is good they can’t reach inside

lay down & let light wash over you
lie still & let it soak into you
breathe deep & feel the love
lay down & let light wash over you
lie still & let it soak into you
breathe deep & feel the love
what you got to lose?

lay down & let light wash over you
lie still & let it soak into you
breathe deep & feel the love
what you got to lose?
i said lay down & let light wash over you
lie still & let it soak into you
breathe deep & feel the love
what you got to lose?
i said lay down & let light wash over you
lie still & let it soak into you
breathe deep & feel the love
what you got to lose?
what you got to lose?
what you got to lose?
