Lyrics


Don't wait for me to leave

Just pretend that I'm not here
Our love is a fly on the wall
Slowing down just before the fall

Try to hang on
Baby, it's a long way down
Baby, it's a long way down

Between each toll of the bell
When shadows move themselves
In the end, it's not how you played
It's what you find while sweeping up the stage

When the idiot's gone
Baby, it's a long way down
Baby, it's a long way down

He's under your bed
He's singing you a song
Baby, it's a long way down

I could vanish
Into thin air
To join the ones you fear
What's the damage?
We cut a deal
Let's give it time
Time to let it heal

Hey, what if I'm wrong?
Going out of my head
Into your arms

Baby, it's a long way down
It's a long way down
It's a long way down
Baby, it's a long way down
