Lyrics

Lay Down and Listen

I was being photographed in downtown Lexington
About the time you must have hit the ground
And somehow fate with its bookends
Will have me in jeans in Brooks
Being photographed again when you're laid down

You never saw me like this
And you're not here to judge me now
But I still wish that you could see
Who I am now

(strum rhythm)

Isn't that the way it always goes
Maybe enough was said
Maybe I didn't quite know how to talk to you
Or maybe you didn't quite know how to listen

But you never saw me like this
And you're not here to judge me now
But I still wish that you could see
Who I am now

I didn't like who I was
and I didn't know what to think of you
I still would have liked to take the chance
to show you the girl you thought you knew
You never saw me like this
And you're not here to judge me now
But I still wish that you could see
Who I am now

(back to finger picking somehow)

I was being photographed in downtown Lexington
About the time you must have hit the ground
And somehow fate with its bookends
Will have me in jeans in Brooks
Being photographed again when you're laid down
