"Down" as written by Jade Geniveve Anderson and Francis Eg White....





All the people in your life say you're down

And the strangers in the night say you're down

And the loonies on the right say you're down

You're down

And the ambulances sigh that you're down

And the traffic speeding by say you're down

And the people in your mind say you're down you're down



Hey you chase the day away

Hey you draw the blinds and blow your mind away

There's a sadness in your eyes

And there's a blankness in your smile,



And the people in the park say you're down,

And the strangers in the dark say you're down,

And the pissheads in the bars, say you're down, you're down

And the audiences cry that you're down,

And the ambulances sigh that you're down

And the boyfriends and your love say you're down, you're down



Hey, you chase the day away

Hey, you draw the blinds and blow your mind away,

There's a sadness in your lite,

There's a madness in your smile



Hey, you chase the day away

Hey, you draw the blinds and blow your mind away,

There's a sadness in your lite,

There's a madness in your smile

    General CommentBeautiful... makes me think about the very nature of being down. Songs like this are usually such a no-brainer as everyone can identify with them, as everyone feels down sometimes... But this gets it so much better than most.It baffles me that Suede aren't as commonly played as other big britpop bands.

    General CommentAll the people in your life say you're down
    And the strangers in the night say you're down
    And the loonies on the right say you're down and you're down
    And the ambulances sigh that you're down
    And the traffic speeding by says you're down
    And the people in your life say you're down and you're down

    Hey you chase the day away
    Hey you draw the blinds and blow your mind away

    And there's a sadness in your style
    And there's a blankness in your smile
    And the people in the park say you're down
    And the strangers in the dark say you're down
    And the pissheads in the bars say you're down
    And the audiences cry that you're down
    And the ambulances sigh that you're down
    And the boyfriends in your life say you're down and you're down

    Hey you chase the day away
    Hey you draw the blinds and blow your mind away

    And there's a sadness in your style
    And there's a blankness in your smile
    Hey you chase the day away
    Hey you draw the blinds and blow your mind away
    And there's a sadness in your style
    And there's a madness in your smile
