READY TO GO DOWN

Love cut my heart out like a chainsaw

Left me bleeding on the ground

Torn apart and wounded

Just a shadow of a man

Blowing like a tumbleweed

A hostage to the wind  

Take me now sweet Jesus

 ‘Cos i’m ready to go down

 

Restless as a hungry ghost

A rider in the rain

Restless as a hobo

Riding on a midnight train

Cold and weary, beaten down 

And old before my time

Take me now sweet Jesus

‘Cos I’m ready to go down

 

I’m ready to go down sweet lord 

I’m ready to go down

I’m so ready just to lay this burden down

I’m broken and I’m empty now

A ghost town with no name

Painted on a desert sky in colours all aflame

  

I’ve had enough of drifting

From town to lonely town

So take me to the river

Throw me in and let me drown

There’s nothing left to hold me now

I’m ready to go down

To turn to dust and rest at last

Beneath the cold, cold ground

 

I’m ready to go down sweet lord 

I’m ready to go down

I’m so ready just to lay this burden down

I’m broken and I’m empty now

A ghost town with no name

Painted on a desert sky in colours all aflame

 

I’m ready to go down sweet lord

I’m ready to go down

There’s nothing left to hold me now

I’m ready to go down
