Lay Me Down - Avicii



The Experience:  You might feel weak, but get your life, give a damn. In other words, care. Show them where we can stand. Love is where the heart is. Where is yours?

Official Video: A Live concert of Avicii. 

The meaning of Avicii's Lay Me Down in Darkness: There are two ways of living life. You can let yourself be carried away by whatever hits you, or take life into your own hands. Real love will never happen if you fall in the first category. In the now, take a chance. Find love. How? Avicii doesn't really seem to provide a satisfactory solution, perhaps because he's still looking.

Ask yourself: Where is my heart? What do I really care about? 


LYRICS:


I feel weak, things get tough
Sometimes my knees can barely hold me up
I'm no fool, but it's said
You gotta walk a mile to get outta my head

Come within, taste it up,
Take a little bit and baby don't you give up
Get your life, give a damn
You gotta make a move to show them where we can stand

Lay me down in darkness
Tell me what you see
Love is where the heart is
Show me I'm the one, tell me I'm the one that you need
(Come on)

Lay me down in darkness
Tell me what you see
Love is where the heart is
Show me I'm the one, tell me I'm the one that you need
(Come on)

Show me I'm the one, tell me I'm the one that you need
Show me I'm the one, tell me I'm the one that you need

(Nile)

I got the time, it'll be alright, yeah, I got the time
that you need (yeah)

We all bleed, bleed the same
If you get the picture, leave it outta the frame
In the now, take a chance
Make a mess, and don't forget that life is a dance

Come within, taste it up
Take a little bit and baby don't you give up
Get your life, give a damn
You gotta make a move to show them where we can stand

Lay me down in darkness
Tell me what you see
Love is where the heart is
Show me I'm the one, tell me I'm the one that you need
(Come on)

Lay me down in darkness (yeah)
Tell me what you see
Love is where the heart is
Show me I'm the one, tell me I'm the one that you need
(Come on)

(Nile Riff)

Show me I'm the one tell me I'm the one that you need
(Yeah)
Show me I'm the one tell me I'm the one that you need
Show me I'm the one tell me I'm the one that you need
Show me I'm the one tell me I'm the one that you need

Mmmm-mmm me, show me baby baby tell me that's me, yeah
I got the time, it'll be alright, yeah
I got the time that you need. Come on!
