Lay It All On Me

lyrics

You’re throwing sweaters in a duffel bag
Thinking that you’d rather be somewhere else
You’re throwing fits inside that head of yours
Ready to scream
They give the litany of “you should really…this and that…”
When you’re just getting things off your chest
And I think I know exactly what you need

When you’re feeling let down- Lay it all on me
And you’ve got troubles to get out- Lay it all on me
If you’ve had enough advice from those who think they run your life
You can call and lay it all on me

There’s something great about a friend who never has a doubt
Of how to fix the failures you face
They don’t hesitate and are really only trying to help
There’s simple sanity in hearing back from family
Insisting steps they think you should take
But sometimes the only thing you need is an ear

When you’re feeling let down- Lay it all on me
And you’ve got troubles to get out- Lay it all on me
If you’ve had enough advice from those who think they run your life
You can call and lay it all on me
When life is weighing on your soul- Lay it all on me
I’ll be waiting near my phone- lay it all on me
If your people all presume to know you better than you do
You can call and lay it all on me

Make me a promise to always use your common sense and sing it out
I’m here to listen to all your superstitions and soak it all in
And when you’re ready for answers, calm and steady I can do that for you too
