Coming Down For You

by Joan Shelley



Recorded at Greenhouse and Iðnó Studios in Reykjavik, Iceland by Albert Finnbogason. Written by Joan Shelley. Produced by James Elkington and Joan Shelley.


I’m coming down for you
To where you’ve fallen to
I’m coming down for you
As you always knew I would

No one taught you to pull in close
When danger was near
All your tender parts exposed
Out there in the clear
But when you come down hard
As you always do
I’m saving a part of me
Just to come down for you

I’m coming down for you…

On the plains where the burn has gone
Scarred the locust and the oak
All the flowers and the birds sing on
Of the ashes and the smoke
And if with scorched lungs you call to me
Sound the echo straight through
Up the canyons and the valleys
I will call back to you,
I’m coming down for you…
