Follow You Down
Zedd Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Fading, so slow, black hole
I feel it slipping away
We're all we've got
If you're lost I'm diving in after you
I would touch the sun I'd come undone
It's true, I'd fall for you

Wherever you go, whatever you do
You know I'll follow you down
Wherever you go, if ever you lose your ground
I'll follow you down
I'll follow you down
Follow you
Down, down, down, down, down, down

Wherever you go, whatever you do
You know I'll follow you down
Wherever you go, if ever you lose your ground
I'll follow you down
I'll follow you down
Follow you

You're lost, worn out, face down
Don't know where you're headed to
Right here, right now, somehow I
I'll light the way up for you
I would touch the sun I'd come undone
It's true, I'd fall for you

Wherever you go, whatever you do
You know I'll follow you down
Wherever you go, if ever you lose your ground
I'll follow you down
I'll follow you down
Follow you
Down, down, down, down, down, down

Wherever you go, whatever you do
Wherever you go, whatever you do
Wherever you go, whatever you do
You know I'll follow you down




Wherever you go, if ever you lose your ground
I'll follow you down

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Zedd and Bright Lights' song "Follow You Down" tell a tale of devotion and selflessness. The singer speaks of someone they care about slipping away slowly, like a black hole. Despite the distance and the inevitable conclusion, they pledge to follow this person wherever they go and help them whenever they lose their way.


The lyrics in the chorus repeat the phrase "Wherever you go, if ever you lose your ground, I'll follow you down." This is an especially potent sentiment, as it implies that the singer is willing to suffer with the person they love and help them back up when they fall.


The second stanza focuses on the struggles and weariness of the person the singer is addressing. They're described as "lost, worn out, [and] face down," but the singer promises to light the way for them. They reiterate their love and commitment, expressing a willingness to touch the sun and come undone for the person they love.


Overall, "Follow You Down" is a powerful expression of unconditional love and devotion. It speaks to the desire to stand by someone through thick and thin, no matter how difficult the road ahead might be.
