"I Only Think Of You" as written by and Tom Cowan Rhys Webb....
It's so lonely coming down
It's a long long wait around
It's a hollow hollow day
It's a long long long long way, way down.

Fair and feather-white
Lying in false paradise
I found you on your side
Weighed down.

Don't go,
Because you know I will follow
You know if I lose you I'll go mad.

It's a lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-lonely coming down.
It's a lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-lonely coming down.

As the flames wash around me
I only think of you
I only want to save you
But I've done all I can do.

To the end I would defend you
In heaven I'd suspend you
I only want to save you
I only want the truth.

It's a lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-lonely coming down.
It's a lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-lonely coming down.

Don't ask, because you knew this could never last
You were always going too fast
You were always going too fast.

It's a lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-lonely coming down.
It's a lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-lonely coming down.

To the death I will defend you
With my life I will protect you
I know I'm going to save you
I'll do all I can do.

Alone I'll beat the flames down
I will defend your name
I'll descend through the fire
I will carry you home.
I will carry you home.
I will carry you home.
I will carry you home.

    General CommentMy favourite song off the new album so far. A friend of mine has dubbed it "Maps" for 2009!

    I hate to call on an old theme, but it seems to me it might be a couple having addiction issues. He finds her passed out/overdosed and tells her that he will follow her if she goes, probably by taking an OD also.

    General Commentpretty sure it aint aint about drugs, seen as though faris hates any sort of glamourisation of drugs in his lyrics. just a breakup song me thinks.

    General CommentAnyone else think there is a 'hell' theme to this.
    'Coming down', 'flames', 'to the end I will defend you'
    Drug references for sure, but the instrumentation and feel of this song also makes me think of a man visiting hell for his love.
