"You Bring Me Down" as written by and Elizabeth Anne Berg....
Has the raining stopped yet?
I don't notice anymore
Look up your face
You join in the rain
As you've never really done before
How can this be stopped when
You just opened up the door
How can I go
Back to my home
Thinking life is such a bore

Interesting
It seems to me
The irony of ecstasy
It's coming down much harder than before
Interesting
When you can see
That normal life's like sleep-walking
Hating all the things you once adored

You wake me up
When you're around
It's just my luck
Can't do without
And when you're gone
Watch as I drown
You bring me down
You bring me down

Back and forth
I'm walking
I'm in heaven and in hell
Life is asleep
Between the sheets
The person is I can't believe
Back and forth you're walking
You're my heaven and my hell
Keep me awake
Don't wanna sleep
Just until the next farewell

Interesting
It seems to me
The irony of ecstasy
It's coming down much harder than before
Interesting
When you can see
That normal life's like sleep-walking
Not another day
Not another day
Can't take much more

You wake me up
When you're around
It's just my luck
Can't do without
And when you're gone
Watch as I drown
You bring me down
You bring me down

    General CommentI can't believe hardly anyone's commented =[ The Like are awesome! I think this song is about after having a relationship and you still feel for the person but they don't notice you anymore, and you don't want to go back to being alone. It's a really beautiful song, but really sad...

    General Commentseems like it's about drugs to me.

    "interesting
    it seems to me
    the irony of ecstacy
    is coming down much harder than before "

    it brings you up and you feel amazing, then you come down and feel worse than you did before you did it.


    "interesting
    when you can see
    that normal life's like sleep-walking
    compared to all the things you once ignored "
    and
    "how can this be stopped when
    you just opened up the door?
    how can I go
    back to my home
    thinking life is such a bore?"

    being sober seems so boring. the drug has "opened the door" to this amazing side of life.

    "you wake me up
    when you're around
    it's just my luck
    can't do without
    and when you're gone
    watch as I drown
    you bring me down
    you bring me down... "

    "can't do without"- developing an addiction.
    "you wake me up"- seems like that's referring to one of the effects of the drug, which makes me think it is an upper. then there is the part about not wanting to sleep which is another effect of uppers

    General CommentThis song is clearly about the drug ecstasy, the comedown, and what it does to your life. You can't appreciate the beauty of everyday life anymore once you start rolling a lot unless you're rolling, you get depressed because the serotonin in your brain is depleted, life just isn't what it used to be unless you're on ecstasy.
