Lay Down Your Arms

Tits & Ass Demo, 23 June 1996

Original Version

Babe, it feels like I’ve known you forever
You’re a most peculiar girl
You seem to belong to a different world
And whatever you’re thinking about me
Whatever you’ve heard around town
This time it’s for real
the deal is all done

Lay down your arms
Right from the start
I’m out to make sure
I’ll capture your heart
Lay it all down

When my love is coming around
Whatever you planned for this summer
Whatever you’ll read in my palm
There’s no looking back babe
surrender your heart, yea yea yea
Lay down your arms
Right from the start
I’m out to make sure
I’ll capture your heart
Lay it all down
When my love is coming around
Coming around
Lay down your arms
Right from the start
I’m out to connect
To capture your heart
Lay it all down
When my love is coming around
Coming around
