Give me back my legs.
I want to walk like I did.
You stole away my breath
Floating over my head.
Do you lead me on
With your fingers across my back, well?
When I drag you down,
You will sink like an anchor, you will.
Like an anchor.

You'll come down on my side.
You'll come down in good time.
You'll come down on my side.
You'll come down...

And as I'm falling out of the sun,
Back to where I feel safe again.
How did I come undone
Trying to save my own skin?
I want to be your hero.
I want to show you the good fight, the good fight, yeah.
I want to touch your face
Before you sink like an anchor, you will.
Like an anchor.

You'll come down on my side.
You'll come down in good time.
You'll come down on my side.
You'll come down...

You'll come down on my side.
You'll come down in good time.
You'll come down on my side, on my side, on my side.
You'll come down...

    General CommentThis is such a great song. Sounds like Lewis has a pattern of loving his women to death,literally.

    General CommentThis is just a thought that came across me, but this could be about this guy who has an arch rival, whom he wants to destroy although he kinda has feelings for her. But it could just be about some guy who's gonna kill his girlfriend. I love this song, though, whichever meaning it has.

    General CommentHeh, another thought just came across me... it could be that he planned to kill this girl, and she found out about this plan.

    "And as I'm falling out of the sun,
    Back to where I feel safe again.
    How did I come undone...
    Trying to save my own skin?"

    Now he must retreat and re-plan while she is trying to ruin him with this.

    General CommentI believe this is an extremely well written analogy about about a woman mixed up with a man who brings her down. It's written from the man's POV and seems to imply it was his plan all along.
