Lyrics

I’m Down

E G#7 A E
Why’s it gotta be so hard, sometimes
A E
To see happiness
A E
When I look in my eyes

E G#7 A E
Why’s it gotta hurt so bad for so long
A E
I’ve carried this burden
A B7
And it’s time it moved on

A Am
So don’t call me angry and don’t call me sad
E C#m A B7
I don’t want the last of my heart to go black
A Am
I know this comedown has lasted too long
E C#m A B7
The light in my heart was left on, now it’s gone

E A E
And I’m down
E A E
I’m down

The joy I’ve been feeling wasn’t joy after all
These feelings are bricks
That keep building my wall

I hear the crash and the tumble in my dreams late at night
But dreams are just dreams
With the morning come light

A Am
So don’t call me angry and don’t call me sad
E C#m A B7
I don’t want the last of my heart to go black
A Am
I know this comedown has lasted too long
E C#m A B7
The light in my heart was left on, now it’s gone

E A E
And I’m down
E A E
I’m down
