LAY DOWN (CANDLES IN THE RAIN) (Written by Melanie Safka) Melanie (with The Edwin Hawkins Singers) Lay down lay down Lay it all down Let your white birds smile up At the ones who stand and frown Lay down lay down Lay it all down Let your white birds smile up At the ones who stand and frown We were so close there was no room We bled inside each others' wounds We all had caught the same disease And we all sang the songs of peace Chorus: Lay down lay down Lay it all down Let your white birds smile up At the ones who stand and frown Lay down lay down Lay it all down Let your white birds smile up At the ones who stand and frown What if I told you were stupid, destructive, soulless Callous, murderous, malignant, belligerent, ignorant Would you believe me would you like that Or would you prove me wrong and fight back I'd like to take the sunshine right from the sky And let it shine on you through my eyes You see we all in the same boat trying to float So everybody grab a oar we can make it to shore Chorus We were so close there was no room We bled inside each others' wounds We all had caught the same disease And we all sang the songs of peace Some came to sing Some came to pray Some came to keep the dark away So raise the candles high 'Cause if you don't we could stay Black against the night So raise them higher again And if you do we could stay dry against the rain Chorus (repeat)
