  1. No worries, mate! 🙂

  2. hey guys that song is PERFECT 4 me and my boyfriend we have so many problems at home & whenever ur song comes on we just lay there and think of each other so yeah thats our song so thanks 4 writing it because its EXACTLY how we feel!!! i love u guys!!!!!

  3. Thanks you just helped me find out the artist for this song I’v been looking for forever, me and my mate would stay up late listening to it on the radio and would sing it to eachother softly while we just held each other… truely beautiful thanks so much ^^

  4. I have been married 32 yrs, Jan 4th The two of us lay together still and wish we would never have to face the world. all is perfect until the world closes in on us..The song gives me that feeling when I hear it! Thanks!!

  5. Amazing. This is a great tool, its always annoying when the radio dJ fails to mention the name of the last few songs played. I have thought many times its gotta be essential and would help record sales..

  6. I think the song—-lyrics and music—-is beautiful. The singers voice is haunting — he anunciates the letters clearly. In all it makes me think of peace—something quiet and peaceful on a stormy day.

    Now —–after my long search to find the name of the song and the cd—
    I’m off to buy it. Thanks for doing your part in my search.

  7. this song sucks

  8. It’s ‘LIE’ not ‘LAY’!

  9. I just listened to it and it is LAY. I also checked several lyric sites.

    “If I lay here, if I just lay here, would you lie with me and just forget the world?”

  10. With an unexpected death of someone close over christmas this lyric just reminds me of how short life is and precious is our time with loved ones. Siexe the day. It is so beautiful and haunting. It makes me teary whenever it is played on the radio. It has a similar feel to Fields of Gold by Sting – anothe r of my favourites – i’m a big sucker for a sad song. Thankyou for this great website – it was too easy to track down the artist and it was so cool to see how the song has spoken to others…

  11. it’s one of the bestest song … perfect for ny occassion…

  12. When I finally got pregnant after 1 year…. and lost the “baby” at 8 weeks… I just needed a song… and this song.. is now “my baby’s song”..
    Whenever I hear it.. it reminds me how I felt when I was pregnant… we don’t need anything or anyone.. I just lay sometimes… and forgot about the world… tears come in my eyes everytime I hear the song.. but I cant hear it enough!!

  13. Missy L and all posted on this page,

    I have to agree with you on all that you’ve said. I heard this song a few weeks ago and then heard it today and was able to download it and I must say I love the song. I love the lyrics too. I’m an emotional person when I need to be, when it’s appropriate or when a soft spot is hit. This song brings out my emotions. I played it three times and cried through it each time I played it. I love it. It also reminds you to look back at all the problems we have in our society and that everything can be fixed in one day if we put our minds to it. This song also puts me in the mood when thinking about my most controversial hour which will be in the very near future.

    Unfortunately the gratingly incorrect use of the verb ‘to lie’ in the opening phrases totally destroys it for me.
