When I Go Down Lyrics - Relient K

Review The Song (10)

I'll tell you flat out
It hurts so much to think of this
So from my thoughts I will exclude
The very thing that
I hate more than everything is
The way I'm powerless
To dictate my own moods

I've thrown away
So many things that could've been much more
And I just pray
My problems go away if they're ignored
But that's not the way it works
No that's not the way it works

When I go down
I go down hard
And I take everything I've learned
And teach myself some disregard
When I go down
It hurts to hit the bottom
And of the things that got me there
I think, if only I had fought them

If and when I can
Clear myself of this clouded mind
I'll watch myself settle down
Into a place where
Peace can search me out and find
That I'm so ready to be found

I've thrown away
The hope I had in friendships
I've thrown away
So many things that could have been much more
I've thrown away
The secret to find an end to this
And I just pray
My problems go away if they're ignored
But that's not the way it works
No that's not the way it works

Any control I thought I had just slips right through my hands
While my ever-present conscience shakes its head and reprimands me
Reprimands me
Then and there
I confess
I'll blame all this on my selfishness
Yet you love me
And that consumes me
And I'll stand up again
And do so willingly

You give me hope, and hope it gives me life
You touch my heavy heart, and when you do you make it light
As I exhale I hear your voice
And I answer you, though I hardly make a noise
And from my lips the words I choose to say
Seem pathetic, but it's fallen man's praise
Because I love you
Oh God, I love you
And life is now worth living
If only because of you
And when they say that I'm dead and gone
It won't be further from the truth

When I go down
I lift my eyes to you
I won't look very far
Cause you'll be there
With open arms
To lift me up again
To lift me up again

This song described me perfectly. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/20/07

I go down hard. I don't learn from my mistakes, and so I make the same ones over and over and over again. I need God to be more outworked in my life.
My luv to Relient K, and my Love to God.

True That | Reviewer: Jim Tennant | 7/21/07

I always thought that this song was just a random spew of words, especially towards the end of the song. But I've realized the true meaning of this song, and it is a beautiful song. As a fellow artist(small time or not...)I know what it means to write a good song, and this is one of them. So many times in my life I've felt that all that I was good for was just messing things up, and majorly at that. But now I know that I'm not the only one...:]

The truest song ever | Reviewer: Rach | 5/31/07

this song is really the story of my life and i just love to sit and listen to relient k tell me about me. this song is amazing and it is the perfect song about finding God and letting Him catch you when you fall.

very true | Reviewer: Dylan | 3/24/07

Yeah, tess, people do feel the same, everyone feels like that once or twice in their life, i know i did, and listening to this song brings back memories and reminds me that god is there and other people care and just about someones life going down but getting picked back up again by that one person...

Alike | Reviewer: Tess | 12/12/04

This song reminds me so much of what i felt like & it just makes me feel like someone actually knows how i felt. It makes me feel better to know that people feel the same as i did & it lets me know that God is there. I was lost for a long time, but im here now & i love it more than ever. Relient K is my favorite band ever, & ive been telling a my friends about them. I think that they need it too. Their new cd isnt like theire other ones...its more orginized & not as copisetic as Two Lefts Dont Make A right But Three Do, or Relient K..but i like it all the same...Rock on...
