​Lowdown

This song is by Stephen Stills and appears on the album Thoroughfare Gap (1978).

By Stephen Stills

Feel such misery and I don't know why
Feel so bad I'm surprised I'm not
Condemned to die
I never thought that heartbreak
Could bring such pain.
Guess that's what it's like when you
See different things
And I'm a-lowdown
Get me out of this place
And I'm lowdown
Like a hole in space
And I'm lowdown
Spirit movin' at a dreadful pace
Slowly dyin' I can see it in my face
Sadness and anger all that keeps me goin'
Tired of nothin' but my outsides showin'
And I'm lowdown
Dying embers of a fire
Sputtering tears of a lost desire
Hangin' on to hope that just might be
But I feel like I'm hangin' from a dyin' tree
And I'm lowdown
And I'm lowdown lowdown
Get me out of this place
And I'm lowdown lowdown
Like a hole in space
And I'm lowdown and I'm lowdown
