I'll sing myself to sleep

   A               B

A song from the darkest hour

E

Secrets I can't keep

   A           B

Inside of the day

E

Swing from high to deep

   A          B

Extremes of sweet and sour

E

Hope that God exists

   A       B

I hope I pray



E

Drawn by the undertow

     A               B

My life is out of control

E                                   A

I believe this wave will bear my weight

            B

So let it flow



E

Oh sit down

A                B

Sit down next to me

E

Sit down, down, down, down, down

A        B

In sympathy

E

Now I'm relieved to hear

              A           B

That you've been to some far out places

E

It's hard to carry on

           A         B

When you feel all alone

E

Now I've swung back down again

       A                  B

It's worse than it was before

      E

If I hadn't seen such riches
 
         A                B

I could live with being poor

E

Oh sit down

      A          B

Sit down next to me

E

Sit down, down, down, down, down

A       B

In sympathy



(No guitar at this part)
Those who feel the breath of sadness


Sit down next to me


Those who find they're touched by madness


Sit down next to me


Those who find themselves ridiculous


Sit down next to me


In love, in fear, in hate, in tears



E     A  B

Down

E     A  B

Down



E

Oh sit down

     A           B

Sit down next to me

E

Sit down, down, down, down, down

A      B

In sympathy




E

Oh sit down

     A           B

Sit down next to me

E

Sit down, down, down, down, down

A      B

In sympathy



E

Down

View Just Lyrics...

I sing myself to sleep
A song from the darkest hour
Secrets I can't keep
In sight of the day
Swing from high to deep
Extremes of sweet and sour
Hope that God exists
I hope, I pray

Drawn by the undertow
My life is out of control
I believe this wave will bear my weight
So let it flow

[Chorus]
Oh sit down
Oh sit down
Oh sit down
Sit down next to me
Sit down, down, down, down, down
In sympathy

Now I'm relieved to hear
That you've been to some far out places
It's hard to carry on
When you feel all alone

Now I've swung back down again
It's worse than it was before
If I hadn't seen such riches
I could live with being poor

[Chorus]

Those who feel the breath of sadness
Sit down next to me
Those who find they're touched by madness
Sit down next to me
Those who find themselves ridiculous
Sit down next to me

In love, in fear, in hate, in tears
In love, in fear, in hate, in tears
In love, in fear, in hate, in tears
In love, in fear, in hate

Down,
Down

[Chorus: x2]

Down
