"Come Back Down" as written by and Jason Wade....
Staring right back in the face
A memory can't be erased
I know, because I tried
Start to feel the emptiness
and everything I'm gonna miss
I know, that I can't hide

All this time is passing by
I think it's time to just move on

When you come back down
If you land on your feet
I hope you find a way to make it back to me
When you come around
I'll be there for you
Don't have to be alone with what you're going through

Start to breathe and fake a smile
It's all the same after a while
I know, that you are tired
Carrying the ones you lost
A picture frame with all the thoughts
I know, you hold inside

I hope that you can find your way back
To the place where you belong

When you come back down
If you land on your feet
I hope you find a way to make it back to me
When you come around
I'll be there for you
Don't have to be alone with what you're going through

You're coming back down
You say you feel lost can I help you find it
When you come around
From time to time we all are blinded
You're coming back down
You don't have to tell me what you're feeling
I know what you're going through
I won't be the one that lets go of you

I think it's time to just move on

When you come back down
If you land on your feet
I hope you find a way to make it back to me
When you come around
I'll be there for you
Don't have to be alone with what you're going through

When you come back down
If you land on your feet
I hope you find a way to make it back to me
When you come around
I'll be there for you
Don't have to be alone with what you're going through

    General CommentI'm a huge Lifehouse fan. This song means alot to me, and I can really compare with what he's saying. My girlfriend was having a really rough time a couple months ago, and she only wanted to be alone. She shut me out, and didn't want me to help her because she thought I'd get in the way. What Jason Wade is basically saying is "When you get better again, please remember me, and what we had together even though you want to be alone right now, I hope you know that I'll be there to help you if you need it. Come back to me."

    Another part that I can really compare to is when he says

    "Start to feel the emptiness
    and everything I'm gonna miss.
    I know that I can't hide."

    It reminds me of the pain I feel when I'm not sure what's gonna happen. She could be fine, or be hurting, and I can't do anything to help her.

    "Staring right back in the face,
    a memory can't be erased.
    I know, because I tried."

    He's stating how hard it is to just let someone go like that, it's nearly impossible, and he's tried many times.

    this is one deep song...my new favorite!

    General Commenti think it means he's trying to forget about a girl but he just can't and that he'll always be there for her if she ever decides to come back to him

    General CommentI'm considering that this song can also be refering to death...

    "Staring right back in the face,
    a memory can't be erased.
    I know, because I tried.

    Start to feel the emptiness
    and everything I'm gonna miss.
    I know that I can't hide."

    and

    "Start to breathe and fake a smile,
    it's all the same after a while.
    I know that you are tired.

    Carrying the ones you lost,
    a picture frame with all the thoughts
    I know you hold inside.

    I hope that you can find your way back
    To the place where you belong"

    The way that this beautiful song intertwines with those specific parts makes it seem--or at least to me--that this song has to do with dealing with a loved one's death.

    General CommentI think the girl is having some problems with her family/friends [I personally think it's about drugs but thats just me] or something. Then she choses to break up with the guy because she's too stressed out to be in a relationship.
    I think that the narrator is saying that he loves her and once she gets through this horrible time in her life, that He'll still be there for her because he just cant get over her.
