about

A song written in the depths of despair, when all I wanted to do was fly.

“Flying high so no one knows I am on the way down.”

lyrics

Down Down Down Down…Way
Down Down Down Down…

I’ve been longing to stretch these aches and pains
But this bed grows smaller every day
My shoes don’t fit; my hair does not sit
Dead skin left from this incessant itch

Chorus
But I’ve been searching for a secret
Hiding in the shadows so I can keep it
I’m Peter Pan; I’m Tinkerbell
If anyone asks I’ve been doing swell
Flying high so no one knows I’m on the way down

Down Down Down Down…Way
Down Down Down Down…

I’ve been screaming into an empty void
For the insecure and the paranoid
My shoes don’t fit; my hair does not sit
Dead skin left from this incessant itch

Chorus
But I’ve been searching for a secret
Hiding in the shadows so I can keep it
I’m Peter Pan; I’m Tinkerbell
If anyone asks I’ve been doing swell
Flying high so no one knows I’m on the way down

Down Down Down Down
Gotta get out of here
Gotta get out of here
Down Down Down Down Down Down Down….

Chorus
I’m Peter Pan; I’m Tinkerbell
If anyone asks I’ve been doing swell
Flying high so no one knows I’m on the way down
I’m Peter Pan; I’m Tinkerbell
If anyone asks I’ve been doing swell
Flying high so no one knows I’m on the way down

Down Down Down Down…Way
Down Down Down Down…Way Down.
