The drops of rain they fall all over
This awkward silence makes me crazy
The glow inside burns light upon her
I'll try to kiss you if you let me
(This can't be the end)

Tidal waves they rip right through me
Tears from eyes worn cold and sad
Pick me up now, I need you so bad

Down down down down
Down down down down
Down down down down
Down down down down
It gets me so
Down down down down
Down down down down
Down down down down
Down down down down
It gets me so

Your vows of silence fall all over
The look in your eyes makes me crazy
I feel the darkness break upon her
I'll take you over if you let me
(You did this)

Tidal waves they rip right through me
Tears from eyes worn cold and sad
Pick me up now, I need you so bad.

Down down down down
Down down down down
Down down down down
Down down down down
It gets me so
Down down down down
Down down down down
Down down down down
Down down down down
It gets me so

    To me it looks like she's left him and when he needs her the most she isn't there anymore. Which in turn gets him so down.

    the girl is saying goodbye by walking away on a rainy night, and she wont let him give her a kiss goodbye. The pain is so bad and sudden that he practically drops to his knees and feels weak.

    In the lyrics book that comes with the cd, tom said that he had one image in his head for this song: a boyfriend and girlfriend that just broke up, and are driving home from somewhere on a rainy night, and there's lots of painful tension.

    I love you so much, but i can't make you love yourself. I'll do anything to save you, if you're willing. But what hurts most is that you're doing this to yourself, and there's ultimately nothing i can do. And it gets me so down, down, down, down...
