Now, I'm down in it
Now, I'm down in it

Kinda like a cloud I was up, way up in the sky
And I was feeling some feelings you wouldn't believe
Sometimes I don't believe them myself
And I decided I was never coming down

Just then a tiny little dot caught my eye it was
Just about too small to see
But I watched it way too long
It was pulling me down

I was up above it
I was up above it
Now, I'm down in it

I was up above it
I was up above it
Now, I'm down in it

Shut up so what, what does it matter now
I was swimming in the haze now I crawl on the ground
And everything I never liked about you
Is kind of seeping into me

Try to laugh about it now
But isn't it funny
How everything works out
"I guess the jokes on me", she said

I was up above it
I was up above it
Now, I'm down in it

I was up above it
I was up above it
Now, I'm down in it

I used to be so big and strong
I used to know my right from wrong
I used to never be afraid
I used to be somebody

I used to have something inside
Now, just this hole that's open wide
I used to want it all
I used to be somebody

I'll cross my heart, I'll hope to die
But the needle's already in my eye
And all the world's weight is on my back
And I don't even know why

What I used to think was me
Is just a fading memory
I looked him right in the eye
And said, "Goodbye"

I was up above it
I was up above it
Now, I'm down in it
Now, I'm down in it

I was up above it
I was up above it
Now, I'm down in it

I was up above it
I was up above it
Now, I'm down in it

I was up above it

Rain, rain go away
Come again some other day
Rain, rain go away
Come again some other day

Rain, rain go away
Come again some other day
Rain, rain go away
Come again some other day

I was up above it
I was up above it
Now, I'm down in it

I was up above it
Now, I'm down in it
