"Don't Get Down" as written by Alexander Greenwald and Jason Schwartzmann....
I want to live on the moon
And never see a human again
And as the Earth explodes
I'll light a candle
For my dead best friends

I don't enjoy this place
My best friends are so mean
I look up to the sky when I am sad
Because the planets don't get down on me
I just want to fall asleep

I want to live on the moon
And never see a human again
And as the Earth explodes
I'll light that candle
For my dead best friends

I look up to the sky when I am sad,
Because the planets don't get down on me

I just want to fall asleep and dream
Of a place that's warm
I just want to fall asleep and dream
Of a place that's warm, oh yeah

I look up to the sky when I am sad,
Because the planets don't get down on me

    General CommentI love this song. It is by far my favourite song. I saw Phantom Planet last night in Albany and Alex held my hand! For the longest time, he stared at me and sang, I was right up front. Needless to say, I cried like a little Backstreet Boys fan.
