I've been getting down
About all the runaround
About all the questioning
And the standing in the night
But like my friends say
You got to do it anyway
And it just gets harder
When you ask why

And I'm tired from all the weight
Tired of being strong
So won't you come and stay
And let me lay
Down in your arms
Down in your arms

I've been getting up early
I've been getting my coffee
I've been getting in the car and driving
All over town
Talking to myself
While I'm taking off my seatbelt
Some people don't know how to slow down

And I'm tired from all the weight
Tired of being strong
So won't you come and stay
And let me lay
Down in your arms
Down in your arms

I've got a troubled
A troubled mind
And you've got a heart
A heart so kind
So kind

So pack in over night bag
Don't worry about what you have
Cause if you need something
You can just use mine
And you don't have to promise
More than you want to
But if you want to see me
This would be a good time

Cause I'm tired from all the weight
Tired of being strong
So won't you come and stay
And let me lay
Down in your arms
Down in your arms

Any luck?
"I've been at this job for the last twelve and a half years.  The pay is good and my boss basically leaves me alone.  I can do the commute in my sleep (may have once or twice).  And then we just got bought out again for the second time in 8 years.  New ownership with grand ideas about synergy and strengthening our core competencies, open planned office spaces are the new thing apparently.  Now the new database system that will make us more efficient has ground everything to a halt.  People are getting pissed because no one knows who to talk to make things happen like they did before.  I really don't want to learn a new database system.  Fuck it, I'm retiring."

Love Catie Curtis.

 
I like this quite a bit.  With the male singer in the background, it really reminds me of the Civil Wars sound.  Apparently Catie came along first.

All I can think of is {#Sleep}.
Love Catie Curtis.

Beautiful song. I do however have a penchant for the mordant.
to all those who had negative comments - did you actually listen to the lyrics?
If she had just played this in my living room I would nod with the required reverence, say "very nice," and think seriously about turning on the stereo.

Pop a valium and go back to sleep, this song is just a horrible nightmare. You'll wake up in an hour and something with some balls and a tune will be playing and you'll forget this ever happened.
I find her voice and the song inordinately depressing.
Have not heard this before. Christ, I really like it. misty, misty, misting me
