the sun goes down, while children listen
all the way down
black as a crow, is the space which you leave me standing
all the way down

if you'd seen the light of day, i'd hold you here tonight
and if you'd seen the light, we'd go all the way down

up there in space, you're looking down on us
looking all the way down
and if you fell to earth, they'd have a name they'd call it
they'd say 'all the way down.'

if you burned your wings, and fell into my arms
you know i wouldn't mind being all the way down

i can't believe in hell, but i've got to believe in heaven
i wouldn't sleep at night not know that you were somewhere better

if you burned your wings, and fell into my arms
you know i wouldn't mind being all the way down
all the way down
all the way down

    General CommentWell, it seems to be about someone close to the speaker dying... "Down" could refer to being under the earth, her (or him) looking down from heaven, or looking up from hell. The speaker would be "all the way down" if he killed himself to be with her (switch the pronouns around if you care to :P ).

    The way he sings it, with the cello and/or double bass in the background... absolutely wonderful. :) The perfect song when you're feeling a bit down (err... no pun intended) yourself.

    General CommentIt's a really sad song about a lost loved one and the hope for the return of that person.
