• Mat Kearney - Down Lyrics

    From the album Young Love

    It took his breath away
    Holding the bank page
    He got the letter they're gonna take their house away
    I'm bout to have a daughter
    He yells it in the air
    Feeling the weight of a world that just don't care

    He lit a cigarette
    Felt in on his lip
    Driving home on a long road with regret
    He pulls the window down shouts it out loud
    Pushing the pedal and praying Lord help us now
    He's looking for a reason
    Watching the sun coming down

    Can you hear when we call
    There where we fall
    Standing our backs against the wall
    Top of our lungs
    Where pain and love bleed into one
    Baby when all you see is darkness
    Coming down now
    We all need forgiveness
    Coming down now

    It was Monday night
    Under the street lights
    She's turning seventeen in seven nights
    Out on the fairgrounds walking in monotone
    She kicks a bottle as empty as her soul

    On the road alone in a house that's half a home
    They give her pills just to kill when she feels alone
    She's looking for a reason
    Watching the sun coming down


    Take these broken streets
    Take these broken dreams
    Hold my hand like we were walking free
    Tell me it will change
    I see it in your face
    The hope the fear the love the faith

    I'm working late again
    Slaving to make the rent
    I'm slanging coffee with dreams heavy as cement
    They're coming one by one the face of falling love
    I write a song with a prayer as I slide the cup

    Chorus (X2)
