Chorus:
Way down
Way down it must be
I can't stop this misery
It must be way down

Spring is just a smile away
Laughing at a summer day
Turn around look at fall
Winter, hear my lonely call
Way down ...

The air is thin and the sky is fat
I'm gonna buy me a brand new hat
Wear it out and go insane
Christ, I hope it never rains
Way down ...

Thought I saw a neon sign
Flash my name wiwh the time
Probably didn't see a thing
Crazy dreams and a broken wing
Way down ...

How ya' gonna get sunshine
Peeking thru venetian blinds
Don't you know all that fear
Begins and ends the same place
Here
Way down ...
