Song Description

After a dream about jumping off a cliff, I realized I could jump even if I didn't know how I'd land

Lyrics

Down
By Antara Blasius and Delilah Poupore ©2001

Golden curls, I know that girl
Perched on the edge of the cliff.
Hand over eye, she?s scanning the sky
Wondering what in her life she will miss.

But, gravity takes hold of me
And I feel myself falling back.
Her image fades so I turn away
And see I have nowhere to land.

Chorus
Whenever I float nearer to what I can?t deny
I wake up from my dream cuz I?m scared I don?t know how to fly?
I?ll push the down button
But if there?s not a ground floor
I don?t want to go down?anymore.

I try to think, let the truth sink in
But my mind is not my own.
Still yet a marionette,
Unmoved by forces unknown.

I?ve seen the line for a long, long time
Drawn between me and me.
But I can?t erase what I wont face:
It?s just safer to let things be.

Chorus
Whenever I float nearer to what I can?t deny
I wake up from my dream cuz I?m scared I don?t know how to fly?
I?ll push the down button
But if there?s not a ground floor
I don?t want to go down?anymore. Anymore.

Bridge
I can?t hold it all together. I can?t let it all fall apart
But I might be able to let go, a little bit to start.

I?ll push the down button
There may not be a ground floor?
But I can go down?
A little more. A little more. A little more.
