Come down off your throne and leave your body alone, somebody must change
You are the reason I've been waiting so long, somebody holds the key
Well, I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
And I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

Come down on your own and leave your body alone, somebody must change
You are the reason I've been waiting all these years, somebody holds the key
Well, I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
And I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

    General Comment:Sometimes I listen to this song on repeat on my CD player. And I LOVE playing it on my acoustic guitar while belting it out or singing it soulfully to myself. If I had to pick ONE song that described "my head", THIS WOULD BE IT! I would probably say this is my all-time favorite song at this point in my life.

    General Comment:I first discovered this song while watching the movie Fandango and since then my meaning for this song has always been from the final scene of that movie.
    It's hard to explain but I think if anybody was interrested in getting a visual meaning (so-to-speak) then watch the end of the movie, it comes on right as the credits start to roll. It moved me, hope you feel the same, it's a great song.
