"Track You Down" as written by and Sondre Lerche Vaular....
Down came the sky
And all you did was blink
I would cry like I never do
In order to stay true
But everybody has their own opinion on such
They're all much alike
Alike, alike
One hundred of a million is worth penning dead down
So why am I writing to the moon?

Down came the sky
To whack us to attack
While we cried in between our cheeks
I was red and bleak
We often joke it's over
But it's never enough
I take it you are afraid
Afraid of everything I am
And of some things, I am not
A fear I share before I go to bed

When tears are pretzels pouring
Down each time
The sweetness is returning
At times when you appreciate
That you survived

Tricks tend to track you down
Even when you're high
It's the reason they made
It all easier
You'll never know the hit
Tricks they track you down
Tricks they track you down

Down came the sky
And everything went black
I saw you
You saw me
And you were naked
Which was weird
But in that space in time
We played the strangers again
In oceans of oh I see, I see
When my words lost their meaning
On their way to your door
Yours lost their way out of your

I don't want to want you to go
But I think you've left me
Without options
Things that you should know by now
That I never told

Tricks tend to track you down
Even when you're high
It's the reason
They made it all easier
You'll never know the hit
Tricks they track you down
Tricks they track you down

    General Commenti'm pretty sure it's a break-up song ("i don't want to want you to go"). in my opinion, what happened is that he was living this relationship in which he wanted to believe. he tricked himself trying to make it seem like it was good for him and the other person, but it started to became too complicated for him. tricking wasn't enough anymore, he was brought down.

    as for the first lines, maybe one could understand that no matter if how well he writes, it's not going to matter, because it's all completely different from what the other person is expecting or could understand (considering all his previous lies).

    by joking it's over i understand that they break up and then go back together often, because of small things, but that is not enough to solve the bigger problem. sometimes he does feel like it's a good relationship ("each time the sweetness is returning") and appreciate they're still together.

    but in the end he can't go on anymore ("down came the sky and everything went black"). he suddenly felt akward with her presence and everything seemed out of place. he finally realized the relationship wasn't working. he had been lying to himself and to her.

    General CommentI think the first two lines are especially tragic: "down came the sky
    and all you did was blink" Going along with what fixstrike said, this is when they broke up and it was a huge deal to him, but his girl hardly noticed. Just my interpretation. Sondre is amazing!!

    General CommentI actually think that "tricks they track you down" is sort of like karma (what goes around comes around). So all the bad things she did to him will track her down in a karma-esque way.
