"Drowning (Face Down)" as written by and Jason Null Jared Weeks....
Times before I walked through the valley
Below the sun
I've wandered endlessly and waited for
My time to come

I think I'm drowning
Can someone lend a hand?
Can someone save me?
'Cause I don't think I can

I've gone too far to turn around
It's hard to reach for you
When I'm lying face down
I can't relieve my soul
I'm lost in a moment
Lying face down

Returning home I find myself
Wishing I was already gone
But how long does it take to find me
Well I'm waiting for someone

I think I'm drowning
Can someone lend a hand?
Can someone save me?
'Cause I don't think I can

I've gone too far to turn around
It's hard to reach for you
When I'm lying face down
I can't relieve my soul
I'm lost in a moment
Lying face down

I've gone too far to turn around
It's hard to reach for you
When I'm lying face down
I can't relieve my soul
I'm lost in a moment
Lying, Lying

I've gone too far to turn around
I've gone too far to turn around
In a moment, lying face down

    General CommentI can't believe nobody has commented on this song yet! It is a great tune by Saving Abel! I think it's about the singer either a) being too attached to someone where they've "gone too far to turn around", or b) about them being lonely and not having that someone special in their life, who is needed to "save them" from the drowning...that's my opinion at least.

    General CommentIt's about being on top of the world, being exactly where you want to be in life, then having everything that you've worked for essentially be ripped out from underneath of you. Then working like hell to get it back, looking for any help you can get.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorites for sure!! I think it means maybe drug addiction?? "think i'm drowning, can someone lend a hand? Can someone save me? Cause i don't think i can." sounds like he's messed up with drugs and can't save himself idk

    General CommentThis song is beautiful. It really is. From the chords to the lyrics. Here's my interpretation, or how I feel when I'm listening to it.

    I'd like to say it's a love song. He's fallin so deep in love with someone who he isn't sure cares the same way. He wants to express his love to her, but he's never felt this way and doesn't quite know how.

    Times before I walked through, the valley below the sun.
    ((This is a peaceful image. It could mean the happiness and serenity that his life was before he met her. Or, the other girls he's dated, and how they didn't have as much of an impact on him as this did. I assume this because he says times before, meaning he's done this more than once.))
    I've wondered endlessly, waiting for my time to come.
    ((It seems here that he's searching, but doesn't know where to start, so he just takes it step by step. His time to come might refer to finding love or some everlasting serenity.))

    I think I'm drowning,
    Can someone lend a hand.
    Can someone save me,
    because I don't think I can.
    ((By saying that he is drowning, I think he means that the's drowning in this emotion that he feels for this girl. That's it's so overpowering, its suffocating, and being as it is so new and strong, he doesn't know what it is, or how to deal with it. Thus the someone save me, because I don't think I can.))




    I've come to far to turn around, it's hard to reach for you when I'm lying face down. Can't relieve my soul I'm lost ,lost in a moment, lying, face down.
    (When he says he's come too far to turn around he means that he's experienced enough of this love to go back and that he knows that he cannot go on without this girl. He wants her, but he feels so vulnerable and confused that it's hard for him to reach out to her and tell her how he truley feels. Thus lying face down. When he says he's lost in a moment, that's the love. That moment when you realize that you can't live without someone, and he's just realized this.

    Returning home I find myself wishing I was already gone But how long does it take to find me when I'm waiting for someone.
    ((This is up for personal interpretation. To me, when I picture myself in this situation, I'd either be wishing I was already out of love, or impatient and wishing that we were already together. He asks how long it takes to find someone who's waiting for someone. He's expressing his availability, and now he's waiting on her to see and acknowledge this, but to him, it's taking forever, leaving him here feeling hopeless and helpless and unsure of what to do, which goes right back into the lying face down.
