"I Can't Come Down" as written by and Daniel Anthony/mcnamara Mcnamara....
When I lost you, I played a part I never really knew,
Letting go, is the best thing I could do.
Before you turn that knife, you have to say you'll cut me down
And letting go is effortless now
You found me out.

But I can't come down, anymore
I'm here till you say it isn't so.
I'm in hope
And I can't come down, anymore.
No I'm on a road I've never known.
And there's no way home.

I found something, I would die from now
I don't feel fit to live.
Are you the one it finishes with?
I spend my days thinking of you prayin you would think of me.
Was I wrong to let you just leave me?

And I can't come down, anymore
I'm here till you say it isn't so..
I'm in hope
And I can't come down anymore.
No I'm on a road I've never known.
On my ownnnnnnnnnnnnn....

And I wanna know, what things you see up close in lies, they dissapear
And I wanna know, if I was just a waste of time for you
I want you to say... if you're with him alone, or someone new,
But I can't come down, til you do.

But I can't come down, anymore.. until you say it isn't so.
I'm in hope.. And I can't come down, anymore.
No I'm on a road I've never known.
On my ownnnnnnnnnnnnn....

And I I can't come down, anymore.
No I'm on a road Ive never known.
And there's no way home.

    General CommentThe song for me referrs to him being suspended in time/space by the potential for a second chance at a failed relationship. The "and I wanna know, when you see things close enlarge they dissapear"(misread in the lyrics on this site) could be referring to him knowing the mystery behind the magic of happiness, showing it to be a rouse, misled set of feelings, a trick or just something which only seemed like magic. The truth shall set you free but if you've know where to go from that truth you may well feel suspended, rejected and beg to be taken back. At least you have an identity, a role a purpose. Here I don't think the singer has regained any of those things. The definite realisation of the relationship being finished has not come to him yet. He can come down when this realisation is shown to him either in the form of her being with someone else, "... alone or someone new, but I can't come down til you do". The initial suspension he feels "..I can't come down" is an obvious acknowledgement that he initially acknowledged the end, but the defence mechanism of him running and staying in suspension implies that he has not fully acknowledged it, or that he refuses to live with the acknowledgement. Maybe

    General Commentthis song feels like my life.

    but so do most melancholy-sounding love songs right now.

    seriously though, i think this song is about a relationship that didn't work out, but the singer isn't willing to let go. he's sticking around until he knows there is no chance.
