"Crash And Burn" as written by and Daniel/hayes Jones....
When you feel all alone
And the world has turned it's back on you
Give me a moment please to tame your wild wild heart
I know you feel like the walls are closing in on you
It's hard to find relief and people can be so cold
When darkness is upon your door and
You feel like you can't take anymore

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

When you feel all alone
And a loyal friend is hard to find
You're caught in a one way street
With the monsters in your head
When hopes and dreams are far away and
You feel you can't face the day

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

Because there has always been heartache and pain
And when it's over you'll breathe again
You'll breathe again

When you feel all alone
And the world has turned its back on you
Give me a moment please
To tame your wild wild heart

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

    General Commentwhen i first heard the song, i thought the line was "if you jump, i'll be ready to fall" which i think sounds better then the actual lyric but thats just me. its a good song though

    General CommentBeautiful song. Very inspiring.

    It's a great song to listen to when you just need to brighten up and realize that things have to get worse before they get better, but just remember that they do get better. May not be soon, but they will eventually.

    General CommentI love this song very much. It's helped me through some really depressing times, and I like the way the repetion of the simple guitar riff in the verses feels quite like a lullaby. Obviously this is written to soothe somebody mental, rather than physical, demons, with the "walls closing in on you" and the "monsters in your head." (Incidentally, I like the way Darren chooses "head" here rather than the more obvious ryhme of "mind," to go with "find.")
    I like the enduring vibe of hope in it- Darren himself says he wrote it during "one of the bleakest New York winters" which were understandably hard on him, coming from sunny Oz, and it works as a kind of positive mantra, and there's something about this song that always makes me feel cheerful, no matter how miserable I am at the start.
