Barenaked Ladies – Counting Down Lyrics


Barenaked Ladies – Counting Down

Counting down is easy

It comes down to what are you prepared to do

The sound is teasing

It’s different at eight than when it gets to two

Just hold your breath and

Take one big step over the precipice and

Fall back down

Take a breath

The writing’s on the wall

The temporary outcome

Your paper tigers fall

You made a mess

Okay, you shit the bed

But now you have to lie there

‘Cause it’s all in your head

Counting down is easy

It comes down to what are you prepared to do

The sound is teasing

It’s different at eight than when it gets to two

Just hold your breath and

Take one big step over the precipice and

Fall back down

Take a breath

Your heart won’t settle down

The disappearing options

‘Cause you can’t turn around

Phone a friend


You might have made that call

But you lost all your lifelines

There’s no one left at all

Counting down is easy

It comes down to what are you prepared to do

The sound is teasing

It’s different at eight than when it gets to two

Just hold your breath and

Take one big step over the precipice and

Fall back down

Fall back down (fall back down)

Fall back down (fall back down)

Best thing about going up

You know that it’s gonna come back around

(Stand up) stand back up

(Stand back up) stand back up

Why you crying ’bout a glass half empty

When you know it was you that drank half the cup

Counting down is easy

It comes down to what are you prepared to do

The sound is teasing

It’s different at eight than when it gets to two

Just hold your breath and

Take one big step over the precipice and

Fall back down

Fall back down

Fall back down (fall back down) fall back down

Fall back down (fall back down) fall back down

Fall back down (fall back down) fall back down

Fall back down (fall back down) fall back down
