Lyrics: ‘Lay it Down’ by Kristen Graves
Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity feature Kristen Graves’ Lay it Down’ July 2011.
He’s just another runaway
One word tells his story
He wears scars on his broken body
He hopes someone will see
When you need someone
Lay it down on me
I can lighten your load with a way back home
Don’t you worry ‘no’.
She’s a mother of three
All alone and no home to sleep
She works hard at her broken life
And to her children she sings
Oh run away, mother
We all need each other
Someone to pick us up
When we look to one another seeing
sons and daughters you and I will carry us…
I can lighten your load for the way back home
just lay it down on me
Lay it down.
Don’t you worry ‘no’
