"Low Rising" as written by and Glen James Hansard....
I wanna sit you down and talk
I wanna pull back the veils
And find out what it is I've done wrong
I wanna tear these curtains down
I want you to meet me somewhere
Tonight in this old tourist town
And we'll go

Low rising
'Cause we've gotta come up
We've gotta come up
Low rising
'Cause there's no further for us to fall
Low rising
'Cause I fear we've had enough
Low rising
Oh, for the love of you

I wanna take you to the rock
I wanna jump right in
And see what that big ocean's got
I wanna turn this thing around
I wanna drink with you
All night, till we both fall down
Till we go

Low rising
'Cause we've gotta come up
We've gotta come up
Low rising
'Cause there's no further for us to fall
Low rising
And I fear we've had enough
Low rising
Oh, for the love of you

Low rising
'Cause we've gotta come up
We've gotta come up
Low rising
Til I fear we've had enough
Low rising
'Cause there's no further for us to fall
Low Rising
Oh, for the love of you

For the love of you
Low rising, low rising
I wanna sit you down and talk
I wanna sit you down and talk about it now

    General Commentthis song is so good....i really love this line:

    I wanna drink with you
    All night, till we both fall down

    i'm not really sure why...i guess it just seems like he's being really honest and saying that he wants both the best of times and the worst of times with her...just so long as she is there with him.

    My InterpretationI think it's about a tough relationship, a relationship that's falling apart, it's about a relationship that you so want to work ( We've gotta come up ) but it doesn't seems to work ( 'Cause I fear we've had enough ).
    so you want to sit down and talk ( I wanna sit you down and talk ), to see what you've done wrong ( And find out what it is I've done wrong ) and to see if you can work it out.
    Cause even if not, it's a lot easier to just cut the ropes and let yourself fall and just not see you both suffer in a relationship that can't work even though you both really want each other.

    For the love of you
    We've gotta come up
    'Cause there's no further for us to fall
    and I fear we've had enough
    We've gotta come up
    For the love of you
