I've been down before

Story Behind The Song

Got the melody in my head driving through boston alone. When I got home I picked up the guitar and started playing it on the porch where we had some candles kickin and cigarettes all around. Soon, a whole group of us were singing "I've beend down before"

the lines on my face run deep baby
the dust in my hri is from your floor
my eyes are full of things I can't keep
these hard hand cant hold you anymore

I've been down before (repeat)

your hand on my hand has grown cold
i cant spend another night on your floor
my eyes are full of things i can touch but cant hold
all i can see now is your door

I've been down before (repeat)

when i go i'll shake the dust out of my hair
just can't see no lamb's blood on your door
but don't you worry about me
this heart don't belong to you anymore

I've been down before (repeat)
