09. Down

Dark Is The Way, Lights is a Place
by Anberlin



 

You would have loved who I used to be
Yesterday, I would have hated the boy you see
When you found me I was at my worst
The best I was is a long forgotten curse

You caught me on the way down
Please hold my hand before I drown
Tie my hands before I burn this town
You caught me on the way down

Feel like a shell of yester-years gone by
Bad decisions are like ghosts that just wonít die
Iím so sorry that I canít apologize
For what comes next is another long goodbye

You caught me on the way down
Honey, honey
Please hold my hand before I drown
Tie my hands before I burn this town
You caught me on the way down



Behind the Song:
"I feel like I was a better follower of Christ yesterday, so much of this world just collapses and I felt weighted underneath past decisions. I know it is not necessarily true, but while writing this song thats where I was.

This simple song was perhaps the most autobiographical I had written in years. I see now that we are not our past. I guess I always knew it in the back of my head but it took someone outside myself to show me that it was true.

'Honey, honey' lyric and melody line was stolen from a Lonely Hearts song." - Stephen Christian
