Eric Clapton - Layla (Bonus Unplugged Rehearsal HQ):






Lyrics


What'll you do when you get lonely

And nobody's waiting by your side?

You've been running and hiding much too long

You know it's just your foolish pride


Layla, you've got me on my knees

Layla, I'm begging, darling please

Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind


I tried to give you consolation

When your old man had let you down

Like a fool, I fell in love with you

You turned my whole world upside down


Layla, you've got me on my knees

Layla, I'm begging, darling please

Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind


Make the best of the situation

Before I finally go insane

Please don't say we'll never find a way

And tell me all my love's in vain


Layla, you've got me on my knees

Layla, I'm begging, darling please

Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind


Layla, you've got me on my knees

Layla, I'm begging, darling please

Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind
