We Both Go Down Together

Album: Picaresque (2005)
  • Here on these cliffs of Dover
    So high you can't see over
    And while your head is spinning
    Hold tight, it's just beginning

    You come from parents wanton
    A childhood rough and rotten
    I come from wealth and beauty
    Untouched by work or duty

    And oh, my love, my love
    And oh, my love, my love
    We both go down together

    I found you, a tattooed tramp
    A dirty daughter from the labor camps
    I laid you down on the grass of a clearing
    You wept but your soul was willing

    And oh, my love, my love
    And oh, my love, my love
    We both go down together

    And my parents will never consent to this love
    But I hold your hand

    Meet me on my vast veranda
    My sweet, untouched Miranda
    And while the seagulls are crying
    We fall but our souls are flying

    And oh, my love, my love
    And oh, my love, my love
    And oh, my love, oh my love
    And oh, my love, my love
    We both go down together Writer/s: COLIN MELOY
