Down To Zero


by Joan Armatrading


( F#m - - / E - - / A - - /  / F#m - - / E - - / A - - / A - D //)

 V1:	Oh, the feeling, when you you're reeling,
You step lightly thinking you number one.
Down to zero, with a word, leaving, for another one.
Now you walk with your feet back on the ground,
Down to the ground, down to the ground.

 V2:	Brand new dandy, first class scene stealer,
Walks through the crowd and takes your man.
Sends you rushing to the mirror, brush your eyebrows and say
There's more beauty in you than any one.
Oh, remember who walked the warm sands besides you,
Moored to your heel, let the waves come rushing in.
She'll take the worry from your head, but then again,
She'll put trouble in your heart instead.
Then you'll fall, down to the ground, down to the ground.

  C:	You'll know heartache, still more crying,
When you're thinking of your motherís only son.
Take to your bed, you say there's peace in sleep,
But you dream of love instead.
Oh, the heartache you'll find.
Can bring more pain than a blistering sun.
But, oh when you fall, oh when you fall, fall at my door.

You step lightly thinking you number one.
Down to zero, with a word, leaving, for another one.
Now you walk with your feet back on the ground,
Down to the ground, down to the ground.

When you're thinking of your motherís only son.
Take to your bed, you say there's peace in sleep,
But you dream of love instead.
But, oh when you fall, oh when you fall, fall at my door.
