Lay Him Aside

Written by: Beau Regard

Lay his name in the dark
and let your mouth speak of others
so that you might live once again
and hearing of him no longer bothers

Lay his blind eyes to rest
and let your smiling beauty be seen
so all of us in the rest of the world
might have a chance to dream

Lay his cold hands away
and let your soul be whole again
so in the night when you’re alone
you’ll be safe from his forceful sin

Lay his angry words aside
and let your troubled mind be still
so that when you again hear his voice
you will hold with iron will

Lay his forgotten love to sleep
and let yours breath once more
so that you know deep in your heart 
he can never again take away, what's yours
