Track Name: Lay Me Down
Under the table top, legs all around us
As we follow them around us
When I get big I'm gonna go up in the sky
Go up in the sky so high
Thinkin' to myself I don't wanna be small, I wanna be tall like you
I wanna be everything just like you
And you're thinking all the while I wish I could go back to the time
When I could squeeze under, under the table top

Mommy lay me down, put me in my bed, turn off the light
And sing me a song, so I can think about you for all my nights
Maybe I wanna grow up, but I don't wanna go so fast that you can't
Pick me up and tuck me in at night

Maybe 1 + 1 is 2 for you, but sure it's 3 to me
And numbers are the way for you to count the days before
"Pack 'em up get 'em out, bye-bye." Just let me kiss you one more time
Before I have to go, go away for a while
So if you find me crying in my room tonight don't worry
I want you to come in, though I surely told you to get out and
I can't be good all the time, but I want you to keep this in mind
I won't move ahead without looking behind

Mommy lay me down, tuck me in my bed, turn off the light
Won't you sing me a song, so I can remember you for all my nights?
I still wanna grow up, but never so fast that you can't
Pick me up and tuck me in at night
