Lay Me Down was the debut single by Sam Smith, and was first released in the UK in February 2013. In January 2015, Smith recorded a new version of the song, with a music video shot in St. Margaret’s Church, London.
I heard it for the first time only this year…and love how heart-rending it is. It’s a sad song about the loss of a loved one, and wanting so much to be with him/her again. On this Valentine’s Day, while we’re celebrating love, it’ll be good for us to remember to value our loved ones while they are still here with us. I dedicate this cover to those who have known the wrenching pain of that loss.
