Downstairs to the sun Lyrics

(Katie Melua)

Can't say what came over me
I wasn't what i used to be
Hadn't seen how i lost control
And i always thought that i was strong

But one night, one situation,
One sign, one devastation

I could have said no to the walk
Listened instead of just talked
And i dreamed that i had screamed
I could have run, down the stairs to the sun

It's not what you did to me,
It's the fact that i didn't fight you back
And it seems i had lost my voice
The one that always made the right choice

'Cause two nights, two situations,
Two signs, two devastations

I could have said no to the walk
Listened instead of just talked
And i dreamed that i had screamed
I could have run, down the stairs to the sun

But now the cup is no longer cold
As the rain trickles down i feel a bold
And time is calling me to set myself free
Concession is the key and knowing what you don't see

I could have said no to the walk
Listened instead of just talked
And i dreamed that i had screamed
I could have run, down the stairs to the sun...
