Track: Lay Down My Guns

Lay Down My Guns Lyrics

Well, I just need a place to lay my head
Forget the chain that hangs around my neck
These guns are not as heavy as the hearts they defend
I can't wait to get back home where I can find some rest

When I lay down my guns and lift my hands
Surrender to love and live again
May this desert reach it's end where my new life begins
When I lay down my guns and lift my hands

I have seen the devil in this place
And I lost myself when my friends found the grave
When you're this far from heaven, it's hard keep the faith
I'm barely holding on, I can't wait to ...

I'm laying down these burdens, taking off the weights
I can't count the miles that I walked to find my way
To lay down these guns ... how I need to lay down these guns

I am abandoning my defenses and live to love again
When I lay down my guns and lift my hands
