lyrics

Everybody's at the house / leaning on the walls and chairs
someone that you use to know / disappeared upstairs

Got em all written out / put em all in their place
Everyone accept that girl / was too dark to see her face

Aint that gettin Heavy? / You better just let it go
Someone here is right / Someone here knows

How to put this down / how to lay it down

Your the high and mighty judge / and we all stand accused
Ain’t it strange you can also think /
you’ll never be that good

Ain’t that you pretending to know/
Bout somewhere in between
You never - really - been there yourself /
So you don’t know what that means

Aint that gettin Heavy? / You better just let it go
Someone here is right / Someone here knows/

How to put this down / how to lay it down

None of them even need to speak /
you already know what they’ll say
No one that’s dancin at this party / has done any good today

There you are in your corner / brought your boxing gloves
She never even saw you there /
she was too busy having fun
Aint that gettin Heavy? / You better just let it go
Someone here is right / Someone here knows /
How to put this down / how to lay it down


Look at her / She’s like a trapeze artists /
She’s got that certain flare
She can make it look so easy /
dancing on thin air

She aint afraid to play the clown /
She knows she’s got a net
She’s OK feeling uneasy /
is that the part that you don't get?

There’s somethin she’s tryin to tell you /
But you might have to lean in close
She might just be right/ She might even know

How to put this down / how to lay it down

If you have to you can act / just pretend your on a stage
Your always surrounded by people / who like you anyway

If anyone tries to tell you its easy /
they’re lying cause its not
Especially when you’re / the worst enemy you’ve got

There’s something she’s tryin to tell you / So You better lean in close
She aint tryin to fool you / She’s been there before
She might be just right / She might even know

How to lay it down / How to lay it down
How to lay you down / How to lay you down
