lyrics

Lay Me Down

Bowing cedar take my breath, take it far away
Take my spirit, take my flesh, should I cross today

Lay me down, lay me down

Mother maker, speak to me, tell me what I see
Take me to the wild things place, between the land and sea
Mother I will know the pain, and I will tell the tales
I’ll tell them of the fish and birds, I’ll tell them of the whale


Until you lay me down

Sure of heart and fleet of foot, I walk the weary stones
land my sight on broken white, and council with their bones
Listen far and listen wide, listen cross the great divide
Hear them whisper faint and high, they’re yelling on the other side

Raise my body bleach my bones, set them far apart
Dear ones worry not for me the day my soul departs
Take me to the wild things place, take me there to stay
Hear me whisper faint and high, I’m yelling on the other side
