going under lyrics – 13 engines

i hear the door slam shut, so i know that you’re home
you’ve been out all night, i’ve been here alone
and i’ve been wondering if you’re the same person i knew
the bright lights that shine in your eyes, they make me blind

i hear a footstep on the stairs so i know that you’re near
you’ve returned from pursuing your nocturnal career
and i don’t ask where you’ve been, with who, or if they’re your friend
’cause i don’t really want to know right now, i don’t know when i will again

going under, drifting down, going under
and i know you’ve still got a ways to go down before
we can rise back up into the light
we’re going under, drifting down…

i hear you coughing in the hall so i know you’re all right
it will be morning soon, through the gloom i see daylight
but in this room right now i am alone, i am unsure
i don’t know what you feel anymore and it scares me so
