  1. Up and Down

From the album Flanagan's Field

Lyrics

I am buzzing with a brand new idea
At least I think it is
but I want to hear what you think
You don't even reply
I feel nervous
I feel shy

Oh the things you do
The way you make me feel alone
I shake it off
and ponder on my own

And I go up
and I go down
I go under
and then I just go around
I go up, up, up
and I go down
I go under
and then I just go around

You've been working through the night
You're bone tired but your eyes are bright
You say it's going great
I ask you if it's done
You feel deflated
under the gun

Oh, the things I do
The way I make you feel hemmed in
It seems that's the way it's always been

And you go up
and you go down
You go under
and then you just go around
You go up, up, up
and you go down
You go under
and then you just go around

Will the music still play
if our merry-go-round breaks down?

We are laughing in a sunset on a beach
and we start dreaming of a life that's out of reach
It only takes two minutes 'til we snap
You feel defeated
I feel trapped

Oh the things we do
the way we make each other feel
We cover up our wounds
but never give them time to heal

And we go up
we go down
We go under
and then we just go around
We go up, up, up
and we go down
We go under
and then we just go around
we just go around
