14. When I Go Down

Mmhmm
by Relient K



 

Iíll 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 Iím powerless
To dictate my own moods

Iíve thrown away
So many things
That could have been much more
And I just pray
My problems go away if theyíre ignored
But thatís not the way it works
No thatís not the way it works

When I go down
I go down hard
And I take everything Iíve 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
Iíll watch myself settle down
Into a place where
Peace can search me out and find
That Iím so ready to be found

Iíve thrown away
The hope I had in friendships
Iíve thrown away
So many things
That could have been much more
Iíve thrown away
The secret to find an end to this
And I just pray
My problems go away if theyíre ignored
But thatís not the way it works
No thatís not the way it works

When I go down
I go down hard
And I take everything Iíve 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 its head and reprimands me
Reprimands me
Then and there
I confess
Iíll blame all this on my selfishness
Yet you love me
And that consumes me
And Iíll 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 itís a fallen manís 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 wonít be further from the truth

When I go down
I lift my eyes to you
I wonít look very far
Cause youíll be there
With open arms
To lift me up again
To lift me up again
