Lay Down Your Crown

Take this needle
and thread it
twice
Stitch up
your heart
Doesn't that
feel nice
Lay down
your crown
and lie next
to me
Close your eyes
and just let
yourself be

We all
get a little
lost sometimes
It's easier
to hide it all
away
Then it is
to allow ourselves
to feel
all the pain

Take this needle
and thread it
twice
Everything changes
each time we roll
the dice
Lay down
your crown
and come lie next
to me
I'm right here
with you
I just wish you 
would see

You're closed up
so tight
and won't let
anyone in
You're not
alone in this world
We've all lived
in sin

So I'll take this needle
and thread it
twice
I'll stitch
my heart 
to yours
oh, won't that
be nice
And I hope
one day
you'll see
just how beautiful
your slice
of life
can be
And I hope
oh, I hope
it sets you
free

  2. I like the thought of stitching the two hearts together. And of helping them come out of the shield they have built around themselves to protect themselves from love.

  4. This is like a song or a prayer. It has a meditative tone to it, a spritual undertone.

    It could also about making someone having problems feel comfortable and loved
