James Morrison – Up lyrics

How can I find you
When you're always hiding from yourself
Playing hide and seek with me
Till it gets too dark
Too dark, inside your shell
Why do I even try
When you take me for granted?
I should know better by now
When you call I already hear that crashing sound
As it all falls down

It's never too late to turn it back around
Yeah I know you can
Don't bury your demons deep in the ground
When it all falls down
The only way is up, up, up
The only way is up, up

I watch your spirit break
As it shatters into a million pieces
Just like glass I see right through you
And your parade of excuses
Feels like groundhog day
You say the same things over and over
There's that look in your eye
And I hear that crashing sound
As it all falls down

It's never too late to turn it back around
Yeah I know you can
Don't bury your demons deep in the ground
When it all falls down
The only way is up, up, up
The only way is up, up

It's your love that's strong
It's the only thing that keeps me holding on
It's your heart that's weak
But it's not too weak to bring you back to me

It's never too late to turn it back around
Yeah I know you can
Don't bury your demons deep in the ground
When it all falls down
When it all falls down
It's never too late to turn it back around
When it all falls down
The only way is up
The only way is up, up, up
The only way is up, up
When it all falls down

    This is a heart wrenching song. This clearly speaks to those who are in a relationship with someone who is going through a lot in their life and pushes the ones that love them away. But holding on to them and reminding them that you're there for them is what you need to keep reminding them because a true friend, lover, family member. Never walks away when someone you love is in a dark place. When they are better. They'll know they got there because of you.

    It's just like my relationship with a guy. Which I'm the bad girl in the story. I'm the one who leave him. Because it seems like it's not gonna work out beetwen me and him, and he seems don't want to act at all. So I left him. But then he really devastated. So I come back. And just like this song. I try to go up. And guess what. It's really hard and we still don't know where it will lead. But as long as he's not feel alone. I'll keep going up. To nowhere tho. Lol.
