Sam Smith “Lay Me Down” Lyrics:

Yes I do, I believe
That one day I will be, where I was
Right there, right next to you
And it’s hard, the days just seem so dark
The moon, and the stars, are nothing without you
Your touch, your skin, where do I begin?
No words can explain, the way I’m missing you
The night, this emptiness, this hole that I’m inside
These tears, they tell their own story

You told me not to cry when you were gone
But the feeling’s overwhelming, it’s much too strong
Can I lay by your side, next to you, you
And make sure you’re alright
I’ll take care of you
And I don’t want to be here if I can’t be with you tonight

I’m reaching out to you
Can you hear my call? (Who’s to say you won’t hear me?)
This hurt that I’ve been through
I’m missing you, missing you like crazy

You told me not to cry when you were gone
But the feeling’s overwhelming, it’s much too strong
Can I lay by your side, next to you, you
And make sure you’re alright
I’ll take care of you
And I don’t wanna be here if I can’t be with you tonight

Lay me down tonight, lay me by your side
Lay me down tonight, lay me by your side
Can I lay by your side, next to you, you

UK crooner Sam Smith has already teamed up with R&B legend Mary J. Blige to remake one of his own hits, but this time he’s collaborated with another legend, John Legend. Listen to the new version of Smith’s “Lay Me Down” above.

The track was re-recorded to raise awareness for the British charity Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day, a day in which “comedy and entertainment inspire the nation to give generously…to help people living tough lives across the UK and Africa.”

Smith and Legend will perform the new single live on Friday, March 13th (the actual date of Red Nose Day) during a special BBC One broadcast of the event’s fundraiser. Smith and Legend have graciously waived all royalties, and all of the profits will go toward Comic Relief’s mission.

The new version of “Lay Me Down” is available now on iTunes. Pick up Sam Smith’s album In the Lonely Hour on Amazon (Vinyl, CD, MP3).
