Five years later the song appeared on Yellow Jumps Twice first album. The tune you gonna listen to is slightly different to the album version.

Lyrics

WON`T COME DOWN

 

 

 

I never promised to be the one

To fulfill your childhood dreams

We’ve had our days of love and fun

But maybe that’s not what it seemed.

 

You filled me up

With all your hidden tears

But before I drown I’ve got to run

And we

 

Won’t come down ...

We won’t share our foolish pride.

 

I never promise to ease your pain

But I was there to lend a hand

I’m not prepared to take the blame

Or hide my head deep in the sand.

And we

 

Won’t come down ...
