Boy & Bear Lyrics – Back Down The Black

‘Cause you’re hurting
I can tell by the way that you move
You got your head on your chest and your chest in your mouth
You don’t look so good

There’ll be change
‘Cause this one’s too big not to see
But brother you’re scared and I’m scared when you’re scared
‘Cause you ain’t supposed to be

So I’ll scream out loud
Won’t you get out my way

‘Cause I got the animal
I got the beast on a leash these days
So you don’t go wondering back down the black to that awful place

And help is well on it’s way
And You taught me too much to sit back and watch you this way
Just to watch you this way

There’s a light sound that comes around
Like a raven in flight
A shivering child as the car windows left open overnight

And I watched it light up the moon again
And I watched it all disappear
Oh tether of life won’t you shepherd me home again dear

So I scream out loud
Won’t you get out my way

‘Cause I got the animal
I got the beast on a leash these days
So you don’t go wondering back down the black to that awful place

‘Cause help is well on it’s way,
You taught me too much to sit back and watch you this way
And I’ve been back down the black now before
And I won’t watch you this way
No I won’t watch you this way

And oh, my legs don’t work and my limbs all hurt
As my body aches to take the weight that’s been thrown down on top of you
Like you would do too

And oh, my legs don’t work and my limbs all hurt
As my body aches to take the weight that’s been thrown down on top of you
Like you would do too

And oh, my legs don’t work and my limbs all hurt
As my body aches to take the weight that’s been thrown down on top of you
Like you would do too

And oh, my legs don’t work and my limbs all hurt
As my body aches to take the weight that’s been thrown down on top of you
Like you would do too
