Lay Em Down

Come down to the river
Come and let yourself in
Make good on a promise
To never hurt again
If you're lost and lonely
You're Broken down

Bring all of your troubles come lay 'em down
All you sinners
And the weak at heart
All you helpless
On the boulevards
Wherever you are now
Whatever evil you've found

Bring all of your troubles
And come lay 'em down
We're all tied to the same old failings
Finding shelter in things we know
We're all dirty like corrupted small towns

We'll bring our troubles
We'll bring our troubles lay 'em down
All you rich men
And the high above

All those with And without love
All you burdened Broken down
Bring all of your troubles
Come lay 'em down

It was tough with the borderline -- I tried to help her lay her troubles down. She put them on me though and made me the reason for her troubles. That was her perception, which I had no reason to try to change, although I tried to change it.

In the end, I had to lay my troubles down. That was the lesson that I learned. We all have troubles, and we need to lay them down to heal ourselves.

The relationship with the borderline was a difficult one, but it taught me quite a bit as well. I appreciate these things as I continue to grow into the person I want to become.
