  • It's down to this
    I've got to make this life make sense
    Can anyone tell what I've done
    I miss the life
    I miss the colors of the world
    Can anyone tell where I am

    'Cause now again I found myself so far down
    Away from the sun that shines into the darkest place
    I'm so far down away from the sun again
    Away from the sun again

    I'm over this
    I'm tired of living in the dark
    Can anyone see me down here
    The feeling's gone
    There's nothing left to lift me up
    Back into the world I know

    'Cause now again I found myself so far down
    Away from the sun that shines into the darkest place
    I'm so far down away from the sun
    That shines to light the way for me
    To find my way back into the arms
    That care about the ones like me
    I'm so far down away from the sun again
    Oh no yeah

    It's down to this
    I've got to make this life make sense
    Now I can't tell what I've done
    Now again I found myself so far down away from the sun
    That shines to light the way for me

    'Cause now again I found myself so far down
    Away from the sun that shines into the darkest place
    I'm so far down away from the sun
    That shines to light the way for me
    To find my way back into the arms
    That care about the ones like me
    I'm so far down away from the sun again
    Oh no yeah Writer/s: Bradley Kirk Arnold, Christopher Lee Henderson, Matt Roberts, Robert Todd Harrell

  • Thomas from Charleston ScThe person that said “its about being in a rut or a low point and feeling like your not ever going to get out.”. Is what I also think the song is about. When I get really depressed that song describes how I feel.
  • Glenn from FloridaTo me it seems more like the feelings of someone who has been incarcerated. Recidivism is sad, especially in the state I live in. From personal experience, it sounds like being in a prison cell.
  • Greg from Phoenix NyI have been in this place for months, every time I hear this it feels right. Which is wrong?
  • Trish from Pg, UtTo me, this song is a song of hope, that He (Jesus Christ) can help us get through anything. So the alliteration of "away from the Son" makes sense to me as a similitude. Just my opinion.
  • Robert from Los Angeles, CaAaron is the most accurate. its not about "utter desolation" like Julie thinks. its about being in a rut or a low point and feeling like your not ever going to get out.
  • Julie from Sacramento, CaThis song is a what I call a real wrist-slitter. I mean that in the nicest way. It's about utter desolation without having a happy ending. I shed a few tears each time I listen.
  • Aaron from Houston, TxI think its about being in a rut and just not being able to get out.. maybe feeling alone and that nobody's around to help you out of it... ive been there
