  • [Previously unreleased song . Lay It Down outtake]
  • Transcribed by T.V.Roosmalen
  • What does he see in those mashed potatoes?
  • what secrets does he hold that can be so grin?
  • the silence like a canyon dividing them
  • he's on one side she's opposite him
  • trying so desperately to get his attention
  • she says, "honey, you're a bastard of great proportion".
  • he says, "darling, I plead guilty to that sin."
  • with potatoes half way to his mouth
  • he looks her in the eye and says,
  • "without a doubt
  • my love for you is all that I believe in.
  • "With those few simple words
  • her heart is sent soaring
  • she's able to face another day
  • . through the anger and the laughter
  • she knows that she matters
  • and somebody out there cares.
  • What does she gain by all this sulking?
  • what trouble can there be for one so young?
  • dark tension building like the clouds of a storm
  • her daughter's in her room and she's at the door
  • trying to figure what all this fuss is for.
  • she says, "mother, you're a witch
  • and I'll always hate you."
  • she says, "daughter, perhaps these words
  • you speak are true."
  • she quietly moves towards the bed,
  • look her in the eye gently says,
  • "but I will always believe in you."
  • With those few simple words
  • her heart is sent soaring
  • she's able to face another day.
  • through the anger and the laughter
  • she knows that she matters
  • and somebody out there cares.
  • what do we need to keep us going?
  • what do we need at the end of the day?
  • mysteries keep piling like dirty clothes
  • in the corner.
  • you never thought you'd give up.
  • but you're beginning to wonder
  • when through the gloom you hear
  • a familiar voice say....
  • .... a few simple words
  • that send your heart soaring
  • you're able to face another day.
  • through the anger and the laughter
  • you know that you matter
  • and somebody out there cares.
