"Down" as written by Brett Anderson and Richard Oakes....





All the people in your life say you're down

And the strangers in the night say you're down

And the loonies on the right say you're down

You're down

And the ambulances sigh that you're down

And the traffic speeding by say you're down

And the people in your mind say you're down you're down



Hey you chase the day away

Hey you draw the blinds and blow your mind away

There's a sadness in your eyes

And there's a blankness in your smile,



And the people in the park say you're down,

And the strangers in the dark say you're down,

And the pissheads in the bars, say you're down, you're down

And the audiences cry that you're down,

And the ambulances sigh that you're down

And the boyfriends and your love say you're down, you're down



Hey, you chase the day away

Hey, you draw the blinds and blow your mind away,

There's a sadness in your lite,

There's a madness in your smile



Hey, you chase the day away

Hey, you draw the blinds and blow your mind away,

There's a sadness in your lite,

There's a madness in your smile
