The Eden Project – Man Down Lyrics

The Eden Project – Man Down Lyrics

Seeing you was so bittersweet I almost died
My heart jumped but my head kept screaming: why?
And I almost thought that I could change the past
And I almost, but that never really lasts
Oh
And I’m shot
Oh baby I’m shot
But I’m not
Whatever you wanted
Forever just wanting
You

And I hope you notice
And could come around
Cos I always blow it
And run it into the ground
And silence keeps me frozen
And you won’t make a sound
So I hope you notice
Screaming man down

And I’ll only say this one time
Your headlines won’t get none of my time
Yeah I’m lying
Cos I still can’t find out
Why I’m so divided
Replay those few days over
Somehow I’ll find it
Somewhere in your words
When you leant on my shoulder
I might act distant but I swear that it’s not over
I don’t want to hear it
But I gotta know, yeah I just gotta know
Is there a reason, do you care if I’m still breathing
Or am I insane?
For thinking we could’ve made it
Oh baby we could’ve made it

Oh baby I’m shot
But I’m not
Whatever you wanted
Forever just wanting

But you’ll never know it
Cos I’m just way too proud
Hide behind my ego
Block the whole world out
And these words they don’t come easy
And they don’t come loud
So you’ll never know it
Screaming man down

I just saw God
I just saw God
Outside the liquor store
You told me I was lost
Lost

Thanks DrBoggles for correcting these lyrics

    Pretty sure he says “I just saw God, I just saw God, outside the liquor store, He told me I was lost.”

  • Subvene

    Such a sad song, yet too easy to relate to.

    Please, could somebody write what girl is talking in the middle of the song.
    “.. and whats always be … around, oh no I’m kind of thinking … way around … “

    • me

      she says: “you know how… everyone’s always saying ‘seize the moment’? I don’t know I- I’m kinda thinkin it’s the other way around, you know? Like… the moment seizes us.”

        Thanks! You’re Godlike!
