Sixpence None The Richer - I Won't Stay Long Lyrics




Leaves are falling, and something's calling me here.
The state of depression that I'm walking in,
Got the impression that I won't stay here long.
I know I am like this, but still I don't know what to do.

The sky is darkening, I can feel it in the air.
My heart is sinking, I know winter's on its way.
I know I am like this, but still I don't know what to do.
I know I am like this. Oh sister, show me what to do.

I know there's a way to get this another day.
When will I know if there's a way for me?
I want to lie in the sand and have the sun shine on me.
Is that way too much to ask?

Sixpence None The Richer I Won't Stay Long Comments
  1. João Mafra

    faz parte da vida, é bom lembrar às vezes.

  2. Effirama Quayson

    I can relate. This is my song to my twin sister who gets frustrated with my depression and wants me to be stronger.
    The autumn is when anxieties hits. My heart is sinking because winter is on its way, depression. The push to keep going for another day. I want to lie in the sand and have the sun shine on me is just succumbing to it.

  3. Eric Chu

    Leaves are falling, and something's calling me here.
    The state of depression that I'm walking in,
    Got the impression that I won't stay here long.
    I know I am like this, but still I don't know what to do.

    The sky is darkening, I can feel it in the air.
    My heart is sinking, I know winter's on its way.
    I know I am like this, but still I don't know what to do.
    I know I am like this. Oh sister, show me what to do.

    I know there's a way to get this another day.
    When will I know if there's a way for me?
    I want to lie in the sand and have the sun shine on me.
    Is that way too much to ask?

    I don't find myself any more depressed than the average person. I just think this is a great song. My favorite by Sixpence and the 3rd of 4 fantastic songs in a row on this album.

    I've related to this song at times when I was actually seasonally depressed but right now I'm feeling kind of upbeat and happy and it's just running through my head and has just as much meaning.

    Nick Jones

    Shanrocks777 I just have regular depression of the major variety. It's not the seasonal changes. But I can still very much relate to this.

    I know I'm like this but still I don't know what to do. The state of depression that I'm walking in got the impression that I won't stay here long.

    Describes me in a nutshell.

  5. Nick Jones

    This is a song I can relate to.
    I get depressed and it feels like this. Though the song seems more like it's about seasonal depression.

    When I start getting depressed I actually feel it coming on and know that it wont be forever "the state of depression I'm walking in got the impression I wont stay here long." Thing is, I know I'm like this and still I don't know what to do. How to stop being so down.

    I wish it would go away and come back another day and I know there's a way to get past it.

  6. Rafael Carrizales

    The effect of this one, is annoying but is the better way to show what's singing about. This song is one of my favs :D
