Vander EP - A Place To Lay Our Heads lyrics

Verse
Last night, I woke my only son
And ran down to the beach
We jumped aboard a crowded boat
In wait to cross the sea

Our boat drifted into the dark
Between the sea and sky
I prayed that by the break of day
Our home was far behind

Pre-Chorus
The only dream
We had that night
The only dream we had

Chorus
A place, a space
A home not painted red
To live, to laugh
A place to lay our heads
Somewhere that we can safely stay
Somewhere we haven't fled
A fort, a palace
A place to lay, a place to lay our heads

Verse
Before the dawn, the boat collapsed
And sunk beneath the sea
The tides had torn the crowd apart
'Til there was only me

I watched my son get washed ashore
His face pressed in the sand
I cried knowing I'll never see
My boy become a man

Pre-Chorus
(In our darkest night) The only dream
We had that night
(In our darkest night) The only dream we had

Chorus
A place, a space
A home not painted red
To live, to laugh
A place to lay our heads
Somewhere that we can safely stay
Somewhere we haven't fled
A fort, a palace
A place to lay, a place to lay our heads
Oh yeah

Bridge
In our darkest night
I cried out to the skies
Where were you, God?
Where were you?

In our darkest night
When I begged for our lives
Where were you, God?

Verse
Tonight, I’m laying here alone
On the corner of the street
Looking at the empty space
Where my son used to sleep

Chorus
A place, a space
A home not painted red
To live, to laugh
A place to lay our heads
Somewhere that we can safely stay
Somewhere we haven't fled
A fort, a palace
A place to lay, a place to lay our heads
Oh yeah
A place to lay our heads
