This song is by Daniel Lanois and appears on the album Shine (2003).

I'm going to where the sun burns
And the heat stays in command
Come and lay by my side
Come and lay right here

To where the river turns to dust
And god is never rushed
Come and lay by my side
Come and lay here

Red, I need you and the world

Ah the buzzing, the stink and the smell
Yeah, it's choking me
Come and lay by my side
Come and lay right here

You'll be dressed in a cloud
I'll be singing out my tune real loud
Come and lay by my side
Come and lay right here

Red, I love you and the world

Yes, it seemed to make sense
When Brother Santo said
One more run be enough
Going to be enough, be enough

Money for everything
Silver toed boots and gasoline
Come and lay by my side
Come and lay right here

Red, I worry about you and the world

When I see you behind the glass
I forget that I'm the cage
They bring me to Sunday mass
But it never wiped the rage

Red, I love you and the world

Seven months gone and seven years to go
Red, I can't stand no more
Come and lay by my side
Come and lay here

Red, I need you and the world
Red, I love you and the world
