Down, down, down
Down, down, down
Down, down, down
Down, down, down

Butterfly lets her wing brush past your shoulder
I know you know her around by the way she's so familiar

You keep bringin' me
Down, down, down
Down, down, down
Keep bringin' me
Down, down, down
Down, down, down

All the time you were telling me you loved me
You've been sleeping around
And the shame of it hangs above me like a cloud

You're bringin' me
Down, down, down
Down, down, down
Bringin' me
Down, down, down
Down, down, down

I'm hearing lies
I'm feeling the sting of surprise
I make myself stand up and leave
And turn my back on your hollow pleas

Let it ride
Let the wind blow past my shoulders
Let the road like a ribbon unwind
And the pain of it make me older

Let the world keep bringin' me
Down, down, down
Down, down, down
Keep bringin' me
Down, down, down
Down, down, down
Down, down, down
Down, down, down
Down, down, down
Down, down, down

    "And again, "Down" is not about my husband. I've lived a pretty interesting life. Does not need banal embellishment to merit a wikipage :)."

    Prior to this, "Down," was widely believed to be about her ex-husband, Jim Staskauskas.
