Lay Me Down

Lay me down in clearer waters

where I can be stuck in a dream

holding on to memories trickling in.

where my past catches my present.

Lay me down in clearer waters

Where blue hydrangeas come falling, down, reminding me…

Lay me down in clearer waters

Where my lucid dreams get hit by reality.

Tearing me from the liveliness of optimism

Where my present leaves my future.

Lay me down in clearer waters

Where blue hydrangeas come falling, down, reminding me…

Lay me down in clearer waters

Where my heart isn’t standing still with defeat but with guidance.

Where the sun shines down on my wet pruned face -

showing me it's time to glisten.

Not to worry of when the past, present, or future

should ever have to meet.

Lay me down in clearer waters.
