Laid to Rest (Lyrics: Vega/Saturday Music: The Davis Baby/Dillard)

Well here we all are again, back out on the road
it feels like it's never ending
With all those stones left unturned, still feeling alone
it seems I've got a long way to go

Just to wait and see what was right there in front of me
and I didn't think you'd mind if I wasted away
my whole life, what would I have to leave behind for you?

Because after all we've said I thought we could have put it down
and laid it all to rest

That same old story, you know the one that you heard before
that ends with those bridges burning
Now don't you carry that weight, the weight of the world
Hold onto that page that's turning


It's all starting, to feel the same now, the shapes and forms, the voice is calling you home and this time you could be on your own
never looking back again
No it won't be the same now..


Because after all we've said, I thought we could've put it down and laid it all to rest
Because after all that's been said and done I thought we could have put it down and laid it all to rest

Ben Grim + G-Whiz = The Davis Baby. We recorded a 4 song EP of old school pop punk, the way we loved it back in the late 80's and early 90's. Back before pop punk was exploited by major labels & Mtv. Hopefully this recording will help bring back the sound we all loved so much! Physical release out soon in Japan on Waterslide Records! ... more
