Come on

Hey little brother, dry ur eyes
The sun'll B settin' soon N ur troubled skies
All around U, Jesus exposing ur sight
Come till U come on, let's go higher

1 day they gonna lay U down
N a pretty little bed of roses
How U find devil N the needle, only heaven knows

1 day they'll grant a statute of U just 2 tear it down
Oh yeah
Listen, baby
This chapter closes
With ur soul cryin' N a bed of roses
Oh yeah

Mama always gave U want U wanted
No matter how good, no matter how bad
Now she cries 4 the son who only talks 2 dealers
Now she cries 4 the son that she never had
No!

Another trip 2 the dealer is another trip thru hell
Mother stays the same 4 a better way out
Can't U tell, can't U tell?

1 day they gonna lay U down
N a pretty little bed of roses
How U find devil N the needle, only heaven knows

Sometimes wish it all over
Sometimes wish U dead
Then catch myself & pray 2 God
That a voice will sound N ur head
Oh!
A light will shine, know it will
& he stops doin' horse, he stops doin' pills
Stop, stop! Come back, baby
Stop, stop! Come back now
love U more than words can say
don't wanna lay ya, don't wanna lay ya
don't wanna, don't wanna, I don't wanna lay U down

1 day they gonna lay U down
N a pretty little bed of roses
How U find devil N the needle, only heaven knows
Can't U hear ur soul a-cryin'?

Listen... ow
1 day they gonna lay U down (Yeah!)
N a pretty little bed of roses
1 day they gonna lay U down
N a pretty little bed of roses (Oh yeah)
1 day they gonna lay U down
N a pretty little bed of roses
How U find devil N the needle, only heaven knows
1 day they gonna lay U down, 1 day they gonna lay U down
1 day they gonna lay U, 1 day they gonna lay U
1 day they gonna lay U down
N a bed of roses
