I want to lay you down in some little place

By: David M Karpatkin

I want to lay you down in some little place,
Listen to your song.
Listen to the way your soul speaks,
The way your heart sings.

I want to be the one, who watches as you compose it,
As you let it be written.
I want to be the one, who sits through the rehearsals,
The one who knows you nailed it on the first try.

I want to be the one to take you there,
The one to hear it for the first time.
I want to see your mouth breath life to it,
Your lungs expel it out to the world.

I want to be the one who soaks it all in,
The one who hum’s the tune.
I want to be the one who it’s directed to,
The one who cries afterward because I know it’s true.

I want to be the one, who claps the loudest,
The one who feels the most
I want to be the one who is lucky enough to know
That everything else is secondary.

I want to lay you down in some little place,
Listen to your song.
Listen to the way your soul speaks
And say, “I love you, too�
