"If You Break Down" as written by and Ellis Paul....
So you've come to a day
Where you wish the clocks
Went backwards
In the cover of night
You're asking the stars to stay
Asking satellites
To stop and help you to remember
How to picture the world
Before everything had changed

If you break down
I'm at your shoulder
Take me at my word
You can break down
I will tell you over and over
A reliable sound is coming around
If you break down

If fear comes without invitation
And lays its head
In the green of your tired eyes
If it's paralyzing
I will wake you
We will walk a thousand paces
Walk away, walk away
Till you are walking on your own

And if you break down
I'm at your shoulder
Take me at my word
You can break down
I will tell you over and over
A reliable sound is coming around
If you break down
A reliable sound,
I'm coming round
If you break down

If you break down,
Look no further
Take me at my word
You can break down
I will tell you over and over
A reliable sound is coming around
A reliable sound is coming around
If you break down

Take my word
I'm coming around

    General Commenti've been asking the stars to stay
    i've been asking satellites to stop and help me to remember
    how to picture the world
    before everything had changed...

    that's basically been my life for the past 8 months :(
