All this built up passion burnt out anyway
Didn't see it come, you get stuck in your ways
Oh please, no summons or lectures here
Oh, I'm empty today, today
Not a single thing could persuade me to stay
But I've seen the top of the mountain
Now there's only one place to go

Downhill could be my best direction, downhill I'll go
Downhill could be my best direction, downhill I'll go

Physically I'm present but my soul's away
Everybody sees, just straight in your face
Oh please, my nature's unchangeable
Oh, just leave it for me, for me
Could you tolerate? Could you give me some space?
Cos I've seen the top of the mountain
Now there's only one place to go

Downhill could be my best direction, downhill I'll go
Downhill could be my best direction, downhill I'll go

Today, today
There's not a single thing could persuade me to stay
Cos I've seen the top of the mountain
Now there's only one place to go

Downhill could be my best direction, downhill I'll go
Downhill could be my best direction, downhill I go

    General CommentSo what about the part where there is whispering/ really quiet vocals under some of the music? There are so many Mansun songs like that I guess... I love this song...
