  1. Come Down

From the album Sweet Impossible

Lyrics

v1:
put a little spark in it, girl, i haven’t got all night
this ain’t my last chance for getting it right
you won’t remember, it’s not like you’re listening anyway
we’ve been here before, so tell me again
v2:
you know i gave up a long, long time ago
i’m dropping the curtain on this worn-out show
so let’s drag it out one more time, don’t you know
for the drunks & the barflys & the hacks up on burke street
they’ve seen it all before

pre-c:
i used to think it’s funny i could find you back here
this old-man bar ain’t what it used to be
they were saving seats in that back booth for you
maybe they were saving one for me next to you

c:
every time you get up, you find you’re out of luck
you come down
every time you get high, i want you to try to come around
come around

v3:
kept shootin’ by like a crazy old comet
thought you’d get by in arms of a sentimental fool
didn’t take a smart man to guess it
you’d run out before the good times begin
there’s nothing to lose, when you never took a chance
v4:
get a hold of yourself now, girl, the tether’s untied
i thought i was in such a hurry to ride
maybe the trigger’s primed, and i could go with it anytime
just like all those years ago


pre-c:
maybe things didn’t turn out so bad, you know
i had 15 good years to think it over
there’s a buzzin’ hive of hornets underneath the lock & key
you’ve been stung too many times, but not by me

c:
every time you get up, you find you’re out of luck
you come down
every time you get high, i want you to try to come around
come around

b:
and this world keeps on taking and you keep on making
those same mistakes every day
but you’ll go on living, you’re not gonna give in
no matter what you might say

v5:
i won’t lie, you’re not lookin’ so bad
lookin’ is a luxury when you just need what you thought you used to have
so let’s skip the toast to dear ol’ dad and just take what we came for
nobody’s waitin’ up for you tonight

c:
every time you get up, you find you’re out of luck
you come down
every time you get high, i want you to try to come around
come around
