"Long Way Down" as written by and Tom Peter Odell....
Walking on the rooftops
Talking of time
With our eyes a glowing
Like the city lights
She stands on the ledge,
She says, 'it looks so high'

You know it's a

Long way down
Feels like a long way down
Feels like a long way down
Like a long way down
So honey don't leave, don't leave,
Please don't leave me now

'Cause I can feel the rivers
Winding through the lands
Two lines, and a poet
Like a kind old rye
You know we could talk in that language
Only we understand

But you know, honey

It's a long way down
You know it's a long way down
Feels like a long way down
Love it feels like a long way down
So honey don't leave, don't leave,
Please don't leave me now

    General CommentThe song is basically about a heart broken woman who just can't get over all the wonderful times spent with her lover. She is disillusioned but forces her mind to reject the bitter truth. There is also a suicide vibe to it as the woman feels that "it's a long way down" from the ledge of a roof so high that overlooks the city where they once had a joyful time. The song beautifully enunciates the foolery of a particular broken-hearted feminine lover.

    My OpinionThis song was used in the movie The Fault In Our Stars. I guess it's about how sometimes your time to love someone is limited. You enjoy that, live in all seconds and don't miss even one but you know it's not going to last! You beg for it not to finish but it's out of control.
