Paul Kelly - It's All Downhill From Here Lyrics

I was born in a crowded taxi
Daddy scooped me right up off the floor
And he carried me up the path through the big, swinging doors

I was taught not to speak to strangers
But strangers always seemed to know my name
And they bought and sold my pleasure, my disgust and my shame

Now I've got debts to pay
I've got scores to settle
Dreams at break of day
Long nights in the saddle
It's all downhill from here

Every day brings changes in the mirror
Every hand that touches me is kind
When I think of home it sparkles and so brightly shines

But I've got debts to pay
I've got scores to settle
Dreams at break of day
Long nights in the saddle
It's all downhill from here

  7. Torcidɑ que cɑntɑ e vibrɑ

    Bons tempos de MTV e colégio.


    Torcidɑ que cɑntɑ e vibrɑ pois é, o tempo passa e a gente nem vê.
    Mas são esses pequenos momentos que fazem a vida valer a pena.

  8. Leon Del solar

    I remember at age 17 listening to new found glory before surfing and skateboarding.

  17. ShorttMX

    I remember being 8 years old in 2004, skateboarding at this massive indoor skatepark. No A/C, 100+ degrees it felt like inside that warehouse skatepark. Before puking my guts out from heat exhaustion, I remember hearing this when paying to skate for the day while standing in line with my mom lol

  18. ken karwoski

    Song From What 2016 Did To Me!

  19. Mike Tiger

  21. bored7743

    They just really missed the mark with the music videos on this album

  22. Sydney Nonya

    Still my jam 15 years later

  23. James

    American music is better than French music. Thumbs up if you agree?

  24. Corey Hannigan

    Wow a flashback from my teen years if I could only go back and do some stuff different.

  25. patrick miller

    Does anyone else think Jordan looks like a punk rock Morrissey?

  26. Joe Sutherland

    Is this guy intentionally trying to sing like dog shit? Seriously, Quentin Tarantino's little brother should never have been allowed to sing in a band. The instrumental sound of the band is not too bad, but this singer just murdered any goodness that might come through.

  27. sycamorepoppunk

    Hey, everyone! I hope you're doing well and having a great day, week & month! My name's Dylan Angel & I'm a DiY (Do It Yourself) musician from around the Cincinnati, Ohio area. I write, sing and play absolutely everything that you hear in my music (SYCAMORE) myself with the help of my good friend and producer "Eric Tuffendsam" from Moonlight Studios in Fairfield, Ohio. I do my best to create that Pop Punk & Alternative vibe in my music that sounds like the music I grew up with in the 90's and early 2000's. For the fans of the earlier days of Blink-182, Simple Plan, New Found Glory, Bowling For Soup, Good Charlotte, Green Day, The Starting Line, Sum-41 & more. If you could take a few minutes of your day and give my music a chance.. That would be so greatly appreciated! If you end up enjoying it, please help me out by sharing it on any social media site & spreading it around to friends, family and whoever you can! That would help me out tremendously and mean the absolute world to me. Thank you for your time & support! Much love & happy listening. :)

  65. Jeff Eastling

    This video doesn't get the credit it deserves.The song is great...but this video is a much to look much going a Tim Burton flick mixed with a Tool video doesn't get much better as far as I'm concerned!!!

  66. Alicia Sexton

    I've always thought of the expression "It's all down hill from here" to mean it gets easier from here. Like riding a bike, uphill vs downhill. Someone introduced this song to me and now I'm rethinking 😂 Guess it depends on context, because it makes sense here.

  67. Cahuide VC

    morrisey and tarantino

  87. Josh Nelson

    To me this is the most amazing art for a punk band ever. They created some amazing characters. I wish they would’ve had a mini series depicting them. Even the art work in the album sleeve was incredible!

  88. Kyle Reyes

    I bet there isn't a single comment involving any Pokemon for this video........

  89. Jesse Stevenson

    Sonive loved this song my whole life. But i recently googled what a catalyst was.. and with that. It totally changed my mind. I suppose its different for any and every person. Given there life circumstances. But a catalyst is a chemical voluntarily taken to speed up a chemical reaction in the brain... like meth, or cocaine, and if u actually read the lyrics. This song is about someones significant other struggling with abuse. And he’s speaking to her... like i said. Take it for a grain of salt. But if you’ve ever been down that road(yeah you! You know that road i speak of, been there done that). Think about if ur significant other was using. Then read the lyrics. Then read the song. So much more emotion to this song now that I’m older. Just a thought... smoke some herb, google catalyst meaning, play the song and read the lyrics.

  90. Austin Shipman

    I'm 28 I have a theory this music and singers are why most of us around my age group are so tattooed. They were just so damn cool.

  91. Nina S

    Ahhhh... Teenage life... Takes me back.

  92. Natalie Taylor


    Happy Being Miserable

    Let's shoot for 2020!

  93. Franklin Jackson

    “Pikachu erected out your butt” is actually “Figured you were writing out your part”

    Happy Being Miserable

    "Acting out your part."

  94. Wesley Pollard


  95. AWD :

    I came from "It's 2005 and it's cool as hell" group

  96. Amber Iyanna

    Wish artists these days could still make music like this
