Oh, I love the rain
Beating on my window pane

I give you all my love
And keep nothing for myself
I’ll sacrifice for you
And pay the price for loving self

Unconditional
Like the guy who takes the fall
Through the fire breathe, breathe
To the limit, to the wall

Here I am, can I be your fool?
What you want ‘cause I’ll get it for you
And I don’t know what to do
‘Cause I’m so in love with you
All my empty pockets spin
Ride with you to the very end
Telling you I’m down and that I’d do it all again

(Chorus)
That’s the definition of down
Baby, let’s get down to ground 0
That’s the definition of down
Damn I dig you baby and you know
You know
Yea, you know

Deep down, went deep for you
And asked for nothing in return
I’ll give you all my specials baby
And any time you need to burn

I’ll make it so organic daddy
Just like a stroll around the park
Get down like nice and easy
Like shadow boxing in the dark

Here I am, can I be your fool?
What you want ‘cause I’ll get it for you
And I don’t know what to do
‘Cause I’m so in love with you
All my empty pockets spin
Ride with you to the very end
Telling you I’m down and that I’d do it all again

[Chorus]

Through the fire, to the limit, to the wall
Here I come every time you call
Like the autumn leafs that fall
Never hesitate to give my all

Through the fire, to the limit, to the wall
Here I come every time you call
Like the autumn leafs that fall
Never hesitate to give my all

Through the fire, to the limit, to the wall
Here I come every time you call
Never hesitate to give my all
Like the autumn leafs that fall
Through the fire, to the limit, to the wall
Never hesitateCause that’s my definition

That’s the definition of down
Baby, let’s get down to ground 0
That’s the definition of down
I’m ‘bout to put it down, baby you know
That’s the definition of down
Baby, let’s get down to ground 0
That’s the definition of down
Damn I dig you baby and you know
You know
Yea, you know
Baby, you know
Yea, you know
You know
