Breaking Down

Album: Ceremonials (2012)
  • All alone it was always there you see
    And even on my own
    It was always standing next to me
    I can see it coming from the edge of the room
    Creeping in the streetlight holding my hand in the pale gloom
    Can you see it coming now?

    Ah-ah, ah-ah I think I'm breaking down again
    Ah-ah, ah-ah I think I'm breaking down

    All alone even when I was a child
    I've always known there was something to be frightened of
    I can see it coming from the edge of the room
    Creeping in the streetlight holding my hand in the pale gloom
    Can you see it coming now?

    Ah-ah, ah-ah I think I'm breaking down again
    Ah-ah, ah-ah I think I'm breaking down

    All alone on the edge of sleep
    My old familiar friend
    Comes and lies down next to me
    And I can see it coming from the edge of the room
    Smiling in the streetlight even with my eyes shut tight
    I still see it coming now

    Ah-ah, ah-ah I think I'm breaking down again
    Ah-ah, ah-ah I think I'm breaking down again
    Ah-ah, ah-ah I think I'm breaking down again
    Ah-ah, ah-ah I think I'm breaking down Writer/s: JAMES ELLIS FORD, FLORENCE LEONTINE MARY WELCH
