Anything But Down
by Sheryl Crow



I light your cigarettes
I bring you apples from the vine
How quickly you forget
I run the bath and pour the wine

I bring you everything that floats into your mind
You don't bring me anything but down
You don't bring me anything but down
You don't bring me anything but down

When you come 'round
You are a raging sea
I pull myself out everyday
I plead insanity

'Cause I can't leave but I can't stay
You say, "Won't you come find me" and "Yes" is what I say
But you don't bring me anything but down
No, you don't bring me anything but down

Everything is crashing to the ground
Maybe I'm not your perfect kind
Maybe I'm not what you had in mind
Maybe we're just killing time

You with your silky words
And your eyes of green and blue
You with your steel beliefs
That don't match anything you do

It was so much easier before you became you
Now you don't bring me anything but down
No, you don't bring me anything but down
Everything just crashes to the ground

When you come around, when you come around
No more playing seek and hide
No more long and wasted nights
Can't you make it easy on yourself

I know you wish you were strong
You wish you were never wrong
Well, I got some wishes of my own
