Down Now

Album: One Time Bells (2002)
  • Gotta stop now, ya get me so down
    This feeling still in everyone
    It's cheating ourself, gotta stop now
    When you do it all this way
    I've always said it's easy that way
    It's easy to manipulate
    And take me to war
    Squirrel it away when you wake up cold and alive
    You go

    Butt out
    Thought I had it down now
    This is what I asked for
    Get out
    Go out
    Get down now
    But I'm not you so let it go

    I hurried again to see if you grin
    A second look is all I ask for
    Nothing's wrong, when nothing's so bad
    This offence is all you live for
    You're so down, you make me slow down
    When I forgot you're just that way
    You thought you're so bad, turn me away
    I know why cuz when they wanted pictures of you
    Guy in his van, took you to hell and was all the rage and
    I was let down, cuz people go down
    Feel myself for more of the same
    And now

    Butt out
    Thought I had it down now
    This is what I asked for
    Get out
    Go out
    Get down now
    But I'm not you so let it go

    Butt out
    Thought I had it down now
    This is what I asked for
    Get out
    Go out
    Get down now
    But I'm not you so let it go

    And I waited till today to tell you gather round to get it all
    And I waited so alone with nothin you get by with nothin
    And I waited till tonight to tell you gather around to get more
    And I waited so alone with nothin you get by with nothin

    And I waited till tonight to tell you gather round to get it all
    And I waited so alone with nothin you get by with nothin
    And I waited all alone to tell you gather around to get more
    And I waited so alone with nothin you get by with nothin
    [over choruses]
