Lay Me Down Forever

Lay Me Down Forever

I’ve rode across the star plains
Wings stretched open wide
Long across the oceans
I’ve leaped the lost divide
So early in the morning
When you hear the silent sound
Listen to the echo of me
Laid beneath the ground
I’ve lived too many lifetimes
Walked one to many roads
Across the lines eternal
Within this heart of stone

So lay me down forever
In the dust beneath your feet.
Sleeping in the wasteland
Of death’s eternal keep

Somewhere in tomorrow
Is a life that’s never lived
How long a soul can wander
With nothing left to give
So early in the morning
When you hear the silent wind
Open up your eyes now
And unlock what lies within
Shadows of a silent heart
Have torn the world on down
Falling like the raindrops
From an unseen cloud.

So lay me down forever
In the dust beneath your feet.
Sleeping in the wasteland
Of death’s eternal keep

The silence of the passage
A reflection on the ground
Torn between the heavens
Shattered without a quiet sound
So early in the morning
As you hear the words within
Your spirits speaking softly
Above the silence then
To live within the mystery
Of tomorrows never come
To wake with open eyes
To the dawning of the sun

So lay me down forever
In the dust beneath your feet.
Sleeping in the wasteland
Of death’s eternal keep

So lay me down forever
In the dust beneath your feet.
Sleeping in the wasteland
Of death’s eternal keep

I’m sleeping in the wasteland
Of Deaths eternal keep.
