Come Back Down

“Come Back Down”
written by Glen Phillips and/or Todd Nichols
i’ve come here a thousand times, some things never change
“yes i will, anything you say”
i’ve quit this a million times, can’t quite stay away
just one more time…i’ll be ok
but i’m so damn tired

when i come back down
though i’m crazy to
anything you want from me i’ll do

“hey joe, could you spare a buck
i could use some food”
what a laugh, one more fool
two hours and it’s back again, lapping at my heels
stop yelling..i’ll get through
but i’m so damn tired

i’ve come here a thousand time
some things never change
lay me down…take me away
god, i’m so damn tired

NOTES: Released on Pale (1990).
