[Verse 1]
All I'm looking for
Is a little bit more rope
To wrap around my throat
I'm in trouble
I'm in trouble

And all I'm gasping for
Is one last breath of hope
To heal the hearts I broke
I'm in trouble
I'm in trouble

[Pre-Chorus]
When you lay my body down
When you throw me in the ground
Don't be sorry
When you lay my body down
When you throw me in the ground

[Chorus]
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me
Turn your heart
To the trail
Of souls behind me
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me

[Verse 2]
All the fearful eyes
Stay burned upon my mind
The gift they left behind
Are my troubles
Are my troubles

Still their final words
Ring louder than my thoughts
Lay heavy as a curse
I'm in trouble
I'm in trouble

[Pre-Chorus]
When you lay my body down
When you throw me in the ground
Don't be sorry
When you lay my body down
When I'm buried in the ground

[Chorus]
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me
Turn your heart
To the trail
Of souls behind me
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me

[Bridge]
These are my confessions
I'm singing down my dying words
These are my confessions
Make peace before I hit the dirt
These are my confessions
Hear all my sins laid down in verse
These are my confessions
Oh, these are my confessions

[Chorus]
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me
Turn your heart
To the trail
Of souls behind me
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me

Lay My Body Down Lyrics

Rag'n'Bone Man – Lay My Body Down Lyrics

[Verse 1]
All I'm looking for
Is a little bit more rope
To wrap around my throat
I'm in trouble
I'm in trouble

And all I'm gasping for
Is one last breath of hope
To heal the hearts I broke
I'm in trouble
I'm in trouble

[Pre-Chorus]
When you lay my body down
When you throw me in the ground
Don't be sorry
When you lay my body down
When you throw me in the ground

[Chorus]
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me
Turn your heart
To the trail
Of souls behind me
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me

[Verse 2]
All the fearful eyes
Stay burned upon my mind
The gift they left behind
Are my troubles
Are my troubles

Still their final words
Ring louder than my thoughts
Lay heavy as a curse
I'm in trouble
I'm in trouble

[Pre-Chorus]
When you lay my body down
When you throw me in the ground
Don't be sorry
When you lay my body down
When I'm buried in the ground

[Chorus]
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me
Turn your heart
To the trail
Of souls behind me
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me

[Bridge]
These are my confessions
I'm singing down my dying words
These are my confessions
Make peace before I hit the dirt
These are my confessions
Hear all my sins laid down in verse
These are my confessions
Oh, these are my confessions

[Chorus]
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me
Turn your heart
To the trail
Of souls behind me
Save your prayers
Don't shed a tear, don't shed a tear for me
