  • This time I'll come first
    I saw you standing
    And I am by your cage
    I think you should wake now
    I can hear you calling
    I'm reaching you my hand
    I can hear you now
    I can hear you calling

    And I say
    Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
    Won't you come down?
    Won't you come down?
    And I say
    Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
    Won't you come down?
    Won't you come down?
    This isn't our parade

    This time I'll rehearse
    For a rough landing
    I've bridled all my rage
    You won't make me back down
    I can hear you calling
    Know you won't understand
    But I'm near you now
    I can see you're falling

    And I say
    Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
    Won't you come down?
    Won't you come down?
    And I say
    Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
    Won't you come down?
    Won't you come down?
    This isn't our parade

    Hey, hey, hey, heya oh love
    Hey, hey, hey, heya oh love

    And I say hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
    (Falling on down)
    Won't you come down?
    Won't you come down?
    And I say hey, hey, hey, hey, heya
    Won't you come down?
    (I watch and hear your call)
    Won't you come down?
    This isn't our parade
