The Only Way Down

This song is by Grant Lee Buffalo and appears on the album Copperopolis (1996).

You've come this far
Followed each
And every star
Not to reach
The peak would seem so wrong
Your eyes look tired
Want to sleep
Although this climb's
So steep
We must keep pressing on

Down it's the only way down
It's the only way down
Down it's the only way down
It's the only way down

I've heard you sing
Quiet voice
Of adverse things
Now you've made the choice
To overcome
This mountains' spire
Towering
Below the summit
Cowering
You've seen how others clung

Down it's the only way down
It's the only way down
Down it's the only way down
It's the only way down

You've come this far
Along this wind
Around this bend
Now look at where you are
