"Don't Let it Get You Down" as written by Ian Stephen Mcculloch, Leslie Thomas Pattinson and William Alfred Sergeant....
You're really something else
Made me forget myself
My lights came on
When I got to you
You were almost through
You're almost gone


Don't let it get you down
Don't let it get you down
The moon and the stars goes crashing round
Don't let it get you down


An angel walked amongst us
Tried but couldn't love us
Somethings wrong
Since you've gone you know
There's nothing and no one
To hang love on


So tell me how it feels
Tell me how it feels
To touch the flame
Tell me who I am
Tell me who I really am
What's my name


Don't let it get you down
(when you're alone)
Don't let it get you down
(when you're alone)
The moon and the stars goes crashing round
(when you're alone)
Don't let it get you down


Don't let it get you down
(when you're alone)
Don't let it get you down
(when you're alone)
The moon and the stars goes crashing round
(when you're alone)
Don't let it get you down


Don't let it get you down
(when you're alone)
Don't let it get you down
(when you're alone)
The moon and the stars goes crashing round
(when you're alone)
Don't let it get you down


God's above us and jesus loves us
If god's above us and jesus loves us
If god's above us
(if you want it, you can get it)
And jesus loves us
(if you want it, you can get it)
If god's above us
(if you want it, come on get it)
And jesus loves us
(right now)
If god's above us
(if you want it, you can get it)
And jesus loves us
(if you want it, you can get it)
If god's above us
(if you want it, come on get it)
And jesus loves us

    General CommentThis is obviously one of the more accessible Bunnymen songs and one of the easier lyrics, easy to understand yet intelligent enough ("since you're gone, you know there's nothing or no one to hang love on" - that sounds really well). The one part I wonder about is why he sings "God's above us, and Jesus loves us". In earlier songs the Bunnymen have shown a big anti-religious feeling ("deny you were ever tempted by the lie that there's an answer in the sky", "I pray, nothing happens: Jesus is all in my mind", "man has to be his own saviour") and Ian confirmed in interviews that he is not religious at all. So this one sentence showing a pro-religious attitude must be ironically intended?
