"On The Way Down" as written by and Ryan/frasca Cabrera....
Sick and tired of this world
There's no more air
Tripping over myself
Going nowhere
Waiting
Suffocating
No direction
I took a dive

On all the way down
I saw you
And you save me from myself
And won't forget the way you love me
And on the way down
I almost fell right through
But I held on to you

Been wondering why
It's only me
Have you always been inside?
Waiting to be
It's all right
Sunlight on my face
Wake up, yeah

I'm alive
'Cause on the way down
I saw you
And you saved me from myself
And won't forget the way you love me
On the way down
I almost fell right through
But I held onto you

I was so afraid
I'm going under
But now
Weight of the world
Feels like nothing
No nothing

Down down down
You're all I wanted
Down down down
You're all I needed now
Down down down
You're all I wanted
You're all I needed

Ah, ah
Ah, ah
And won't forget the way you love me
Ah
All I wanted
All I needed now

On the way down
I saw you
Save me from myself
And won't forget the way you love me
And on the way down
I almost fell right through
But held onto you
Down down down
But I held onto you
Down down down
But I held onto you
Held onto you

    General Commentthis song is actually about him being saved. he didn't want to put God's name in it though because he thought it would be nice to leave it open for interpretation

    General Commentthis song is great. on a interview that i found online Ryan was talking abouyt how it is in fact about getting saved. "on the way down.. i saw you.. and you saved me from myself" hes saying how God saved him when he was at a bad point in his life. i dont usually like pop ish music either, but this is an exception.
