lyrics

You could've left me a shattered dream
given me a broken hand
I only needed just a little help
to make it to a shaky stand.

Could have set me the empty plate
poured me the broken glass
I only needed just a little more
than what I had.

There was a time, a better time
and oh it seemed that it would last forever
But that was just a dream, just a foolish dream
I watched it tear apart at the seams

So just
Lay me down in stony ground
spread flowers all around me
Place a stone saying "Rest In Peace"
In the stony ground I'll finally sleep.
I've been walking this road too long
now baby I just can't go on,
so lay me down in the stony stony ground.

Take me to the graveyard
put me in the ground.
I don't need your love no more
so just lay me down.

Cover me over
until there's nothing left
and leave not a mark in stone
to say that I was ever there.

There was a life, a better life
so long ago I can barely remember
But that was just a lie
such a beautiful lie
I left my heart there with it
when I said goodbye

Lay me down in stony ground
spread flowers all around me
Make a man a bed upon the floor
I can't carry these troubles no more
Walked so long
now baby I just can't go on,
so lay me down in the stony stony ground.

Lay me down in stony ground
walk away and leave me where you found me.
If anybody come looking for me
tell them I finally found some peace.
I've walked in this body too long
now baby I just can't go on,
so lay me down in the stony stony ground.
