Powderfinger - Up & Down & Back Again Lyrics




Come and rescue me
From in the water deep
Careful now don't lose your aim
The road ahead is clear again
I haven't found it yet

You drift away so slow
In the ebb and flow
So I landed on my feet
The steadiness is bittersweet
It feels the same when you're pushed
Out and away and into the crush

In all the hidden pleasures you find
In what you're looking for
I hope that you remember that pride
Comes before a fall

I can barely see up and own and back again
Despite what you believe I keep away from trouble
If who I am today's a sign of where I'm going
I'm ready to embrace

Recreate the scene
Of everywhere you've been
Overcome the dreaded curse
A symptom of the universe
It feels the same when you're pushed
Out and away and into the crush

I can barely see up and own and back again
Despite what you believe I keep away from trouble
If who I am today's a sign of where I'm going
I'm ready to embrace

If everybody knows just who you are
When your walk on role becomes a major part
Have you ever attempted to be yourself
When everybody wants you to be someone else
Up and down and back again
Going up and down and back again

    Lesser bands have become more prevalent. I remember being 15 and preaching to my freinds after hearing double allergic, "These guys will be the next crowded house, except they will actually be Australian!"  Who knows why they didnt take off internationally, I suspect it wasnt really a priority which is why there music remained consistantly fantastic. This band contributed heavily in the soundtrack of my adolescence, and i couldnt have wished for a better one!

  15. ns7557

    This album is still the best album that I've ever bought, intelligent and brilliant Aussie rock.

  16. waldogheadify

    This is a great great song from a reasonably good album!!! Ok, one of the best Oz albums of them all.

  17. Sheila Bounds

    Freakin' awesome band!

  18. pat tiern

    Yes ,very strange they never made it outside Aus. Here in UK everybody I've asked has never heard of them. INXS,Crowded House, ACDC all made it world wide. Perhaps they should have toured more outside Aus. Blame their management, 'cos they sounded great.

  19. gimmeshelter29
