SAM SMITH - Lay Me Down

This single was released on 22 February 2015.
The arrangement and the power in his vocals are what makes this song a super hit. The slow piano and the reverbed vocals add a great feel and energy to this performance and makes listening to this song a breeze. The varying tempo and the style of playing made the structure of the song really interesting as well. Thanks to Emily for this excellent song suggestion.

[INTRO]
[VERSE]
Emaj7
Yes, I do, I believe
Emaj7
That one day I will be
Emaj7
Where I was right there
                A
Right next to you

A
And it's hard
A
The days just seems so dark
A
The moon, the stars
A
Are nothing without you

      Emaj7
Your touch, your skin
Emaj7
Where do I begin?
Emaj7
No words can explain
Emaj7                A
The way I'm missing you

A
Deny this emptiness
A
This hole that I'm inside
A
These tears
A
They tell their own story

F#m              A           C#m     B
Told me not to cry when you were gone
           F#m              A              Bsus4  B
But the feeling's overwhelming, it's much too strong

[CHORUS]
    E              C#m
Can I lay by your side?
         F#m   A
Next to you, you
    E                  C#m
And make sure you're alright
                    F#m
I'll take care of you
     A                     B                  E
I don't want to be here if I can't be with you tonight

[VERSE]
      Emaj7
I'm reaching out to you
                 A
Can you hear my call?
      Emaj7
This hurt that I've been through
                         A             B
I'm missing you, missing you like crazy

[CHORUS]
    E         Emaj7     C#m
Can I lay by your side?
         F#m   A
Next to you, you
    E            Emaj7     C#m
And make sure you're alright
                    F#m
I'll take care of you
     A                     B                  F#m
I don't want to be here if I can't be with you tonight

F#m     A       D B
Lay me down tonight
F#m     A       D B
Lay me by your side
F#m     A       D B
Lay me down tonight
F#m     A       Bsus4
Lay me by your side

Can I lay by your side?

Next to you
