The Years Go Down Lyrics

The Years Go Down by 77s  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


The Years Go Down I was lying on the inside
All snuggled safe and warm
Now I'm crying on the outside 'cuz all my keys won't fit the door
I'd survive in sunny weather
A little rainfall now and then
But I can't abide this endless desert storm of dry bones, sand, and wind

And so I say, I don't know why, I don't know why
The years go down, the years turn 'round
And now it's comin' down it's comin' down again
Was I ever on the inside?

Time was on my side for so long
'Til it said so long to me
Then it fled and left for dead this dying body on some dead man's property
Did I fall down on the first round?
Will I get up for the last?
Too many choices wrong and oh so long forgotten buried deep inside my little shallow past

What can I say?
I don't know why, I don't know why
(deep water stranded high and dry)
The years go down, the years turn 'round
And now it's comin' down it's comin' 'round again
I looked happy on the outside
To the world, to the world, say it again
The years go down, the years turn 'round
And now it's comin' down it's comin' down again
I was happy on the outside
To the world, to the world, to the world

I realize I'm outside
Every day, every night
Will I ever get it right?
I realize You're inside
.You and me, could it be
I'm set free

I realize I'm outside
Clinging to the past
My world is dying and I keep on crying watching every precious day go
Right on past
And so I say
I don't know why, I don't know why
Everybody has to die

The years go down, the years turn 'round
And it's comin' down, comin' down 'til everybody's in the ground
Are you happy on the inside?
To the world, to the world, say it again
The years go down, the years turn 'round
And it's comin' down, comin' down 'til everybody's in the ground
Are you happy on the inside?
