"Somebody's down, somebody's name" as written by and Polly Jean Harvey....
Somebody's down, somebody's name
Saw it all happen
It took place at my window, I was looking down
I had no time
Just time to say "hold on, I'm coming"
He's lying there
It's all just too late

Somebody's down, somebody's name
Saw it fall and all take place
At my window, I was looking down
Oh, for Pete's sake, "hold on, I'm coming"
He's moved on, now
And it all passed
It's all too late

Somebody's down, somebody's name
Saw it all with my own eyes
Saw it all as clear as day
Clear as blue
Blue fucking daylight
I say
"Hold on, I'm coming"
Somebody down, somebody's name
Somebody down, somebody's name
Hold on
No more
Hold on no more
Hold on, I'm coming
Don't you tell me it's too late

Somebody's down, somebody's name
Pushing up daisies out of the ground
Thought I heard him call her name
By the time he hit the ground
Another day, another town
Another body on the ground
By the time the sky went grey
Nobody down, nobody came

I just said
"Oh, Lord, no more
Oh, Lord, no more
Oh, Lord, I'm coming
Don't you tell me it's too late!"
