RELIENT K


When I Go Down Lyrics

I'll tell you flat out
it hurts so much
to think of this
so from my thoughts
i will exclude
the very thing that
i hate more than
everything is
the way I'm powerless
to dictate my own moods

I've thrown away
so many things
that could've been much more
and i just pray
my problems go away
if they're ignored
but that's not the way it works
no that's not the way it works

when i go down
i go down hard
and i take everything i've learned
and teach myself some disregard
when i go down
it hurts to hit the bottom
and of the things that got me there
i think, if only i had fought them

if and when i can
clear myself of this clouded mind
I'll watch myself settle down
into a place where peace
can search me out and find
that I'm so ready to be found

I've thrown away
the hope i had in friendships
I've thrown away
so many things that could
have been much more
I've thrown away
the secret to find an end to this
and i just pray
my problems go away
if they're ignored
but that's not the way it works
no that's not the way it works

when i go down
i go down hard
and i take everything i've learned
and teach myself some disregard
when i go down
it hurts to hit the bottom
and of the things that got me there
i think, if only i had fought them

any control I thought i had
just slips right through my hands
while my ever-present conscience
shakes it's head and reprimands me
reprimands me
then and there
I confess
I'll blame all this on my selfishness
yet you love me
and that consumes me
and I'll stand up again
and do so willingly

You give me hope,
and hope it gives me life
You touch my heavy heart,
and when you do you make it light
As I exhale
I hear your voice
And I answer you,
though I hardly make a noise
And from my lips
the words I choose to say
Seem pathetic,
but it's a fallen man's praise
Because I love you
Oh God, I love you
And life is now worth living
If only because of you
And when they say that I am dead and gone
It won't be further from the truth

When I go Down
I lift my eyes to you
I won't look very far
'Cause you'll be there
With open arms
To lift me up again
To lift me up again
