When I'm down on my luck
and I'm searching for my soul
When I'm feeling too much
and I start to lose control
When I'm down so low
that even enemies don't wanna know
You still care for me, say a prayer for me
and I know I like you hanging around
'Cause you life me up when I'm upside down
Ooh, you are my favorite sound

'Cause you're always down for lifting me up
Like an angel when I hit the ground
Feel your arms all around me
when I'm feeling down
Lift me up, like an angel when I hit my low
When your arms are around me,
I don't wanna let you go

When I'm lost along the way
and I can't face another day
If I stumble on the road and if i can't carry the load
If I lose my faith and kindness and generosity
Would you hold my hand?
Say you understand, my babe.
'Cause you lift me up when I am upside down
Ooh you are my favorite sound


It's been a long hard road
And it's only just begun, my friend
and this I know, you help me carry the load
'Cause you're always down for


Well you're always around..
you're my favorite sound..

    General CommentAmazing song. It makes me think about my friends and everything that we shared. Very positive song.
    Though it is cover, it is much more better, than Darren Hayes's version, IMHO. Great voices, BsB show true emotions, true feelings. Both, Nick and AJ have geat vocals. Also, chorus is incredible. Very beautiful. Lyrics are fantastic, unforgettable. Every line is in harmony with whole meaning of the song.
    One of my favorite songs. Awesome one.

    General CommentVery nice song. When i first heard it , i liked it very much. It has very deep meaning lyrics and a great tune.No doubt "Backstreet Boys" lift me up!!! I am a very huge fan of these guys!! Though this song hasn't been in any album ,it definitely rocks!! I specially like these lines:-

    "" You still care for me, say a prayer for me
    and I know I like you hanging around
    'Cause you life me up when I'm upside down
    Ooh, you are my favorite sound ""

    No doubt why "backstreet boys" are the greatest boy band "ever" in this world"!!!!Keep Pride alive guys!!!!

    General CommentOne of my favorite BSB songs! I just heard this for the first time recently, and I basically fell in love with it first listen! I've been listening to it a lot recently. Very uplifting! Plus, it was written by the incredible Darren Hayes!
