Anything But Down

(Sheryl Crow)


I light your cigarettes

I bring you apples from the vine

How quickly you forget

I run the bath and pour the wine

I bring you everything that floats into your mind


But you don't bring me anything but down

When you come 'round


You are a raging sea

I pull myself out of everyday

I plea insanity

Cause I can't leave but I can't stay

You say, won't you come find me

And yes is what I say


You don't bring me anything but down

Everything is crashing to the ground

Maybe I'm not your perfect kind

Maybe not what you had in mind

Maybe we're just killing time


You with your silky words

And your eyes are green and blue

You with your steel beliefs

That don't match anything you do

It was so much easier before you became you


You don't bring me anything but down

Everything just crashes to the ground

When you come around


No more playing seek and hide

No more long and wasted nights

Can't you make it easy on yourself


I know you wish you were strong

You wish you were never wrong

Well, I got some wishes of my own
