When You Come Back Down
Nickel Creek Lyrics


You got to leave me now, you got to go alone
You got to chase a dream, one that's all your own
Before it slips away
When you're flyin' high, take my heart along
I'll be the harmony to every lonely song
That you learn to play

When you're soarin' through the air
I'll be your solid ground
Take every chance you dare
I'll still be there
When you come back down
When you come back down

I'll keep lookin' up, waitin' your return
My greatest fear will be that you will crash and burn
And I won't feel your fire
I'll be the other hand that always holds the line
Connectin' in between your sweet heart and mine
I'm strung out on that wire

And I'll be on the other end, to hear you when you call
Angel, you were born to fly, and if you get too high
I'll catch you when you fall
I'll catch you when you fall

Your memory's the sunshine every new day brings
I know the sky is calling
Angel, let me help you with your wings

When you're soarin' through the air
I'll be your solid ground
Take every chance you dare

I'll still be there
When you come back down
Take every chance you dare,
I'll still be there
When you come back down
When you come back down

You got to leave me now, you got to go alone
You got to chase a dream, one that's all your own
Before it slips away
When you're flyin' high, take my heart along
I'll be the harmony to every lonely song
That you learn to play
When you're soarin' through the air
I'll be your solid ground
Take every chance you dare
I'll still be there
When you come back down
When you come back down
I'll keep lookin' up, waitin' your return
My greatest fear will be that you will crash and burn
And I won't feel your fire
I'll be the other hand that always holds the line
Connectin' in between your sweet heart and mine
I'm strung out on that wire
And I'll be on the other end, to hear you when you call
Angel, you were born to fly, and if you get too high
I'll catch you when you fall
I'll catch you when you fall
Your memory's the sunshine every new day brings
I know the sky is calling
Angel, let me help you with your wings
When you're soarin' through the air
I'll be your solid ground
Take every chance you dare
I'll still be there
When you come back down
Take every chance you dare,
I'll still be there
When you come back down
When you come back down

ten years later and i am still loving this

When my daughter graduated from High School in 2004, I remember writing some of the lyrics from this song into her Graduation card. The last few months she had been having some mental difficulties. Little did we know she was slowly being swallowed up by schizophrenia. College was cancelled and she spent the next year mostly in bed, sleeping. Eventually she was diagnosed and she's on the right meds now, and she's a beautiful person, in a relatively happy place. But she had wanted to be a doctor. Instead she helps to stuff envelopes at a charity organization she works for. It makes me sad that all her dreams were stripped away, but happy that we still have her. She still "crashes" every once in awhile, and I try to catch her when she falls. Love you sweetie!
