Don't Let it Bring You Down
Words by Niel Young
From the Last Exit demo tapes

 

  Old man lying by the side of the road
As the lorries pass me by
Full moon sinkin' from the weight of the load
And the buildings scrape the sky
Cold wind rippin' down the alley at dawn
And the morning paper flies
Dead man lying by the side of the road
With the daylight in his eyes
Don't let it bring you down
It's only castles burnin'
Find someone who's turnin'
And you will come around

Blind man walkin' by the river at night
With an answer in his hand
Come on down to the river of sight
Where you can really understand
Red lights flashing through the window in the rain
Can you hear the sirens moan?
White stick burned by side lane
If you're walking home alone
Don't let it bring you down
It's only castles burnin'
Find someone who's turnin'
And you will come around

Old man lying by the side of the road
As the lorries pass me by
Full moon sinkin' by the weight of the load
And the buildings touchs the sky
Cold wind rippin' down the alley at dawn
And the morning paper flies
Dead man lying by the side of the road
With the daylight in his eyes
Don't let it bring you down
It's only castles burnin'
Find someone who's turnin'
And you will come around
You will come around
You will come around
You will come around
