Lay My Head Down  Indigo Girls



[G]Oh the party's kicked up a few no[Em7]tches look at us get[C9]ting lo[D]ose
She leans b[G]ack against the wall and she wat[Em7]ches tugging her co[C9]llar like it
might be a no[D]ose.
[Em7]And everyones tied to their th[C9]ing
To their p[Em7]ast or their drink or the d[C9]ate that they bring
I just get ti[G]red all of su[Em7]dden taking it i[C9]n.  [D]
And I want to l[Em7]ay m[D]y h[C]ead d[G]own on y[Am]ou  [D]
Because youre the o[Em7]nly [D]sol[C]id th[G]ing in this r[Am]oom [D]
A room full of ch[G]anges st[Em7]rangers i[C9]llusion con[D]fusion,
I sp[C9]eak from my heart but im n[G]ot really sure if its tr[Am]ue. [D]
I wanna la[G]y my he[Em7]ad d[D]own on y[G]ou.
Oh dont waste too much time planning
Or you'll get rug ripped out
And the only way you'll be satisfied
Is learning to live with out.
But some plan for the kingdom of heaven
And some take their chances and bet lucky seven
I don't know what to believe I just show up and breathe anymore.

And I wanna lay my head down on you
Because youre the only solid thing in this room

A room full of dressers, professors, lookers, hookers
If I don't get out I'll do something I don't wanna do.

And I wanna lay my head down on you.

Was it so long ago
That we sat and talked in your car
Your things were all packed
And the place you were headed not really that far
Years later I think
That I would have been much more alive
To have taken you up on your offer and taken that drive

Well everything that's come before us leads us to where we are now
And thats simple, I know so why cant I let go of the feeling
That im lost somehow
I'm just a ghost looking in
Out of my own life just visiting
In search of a body to have and to hold and to keep and to sleep.

I wanna lay my head down on you
Because youre the only solid thing in this room
A room full of missed chance, slow dance, cold fate heartache
I showed up for a party and saw my life story full view

And I wanna lay my head down on you.

Enjoy!
