Radiohead Lyrics

Upside Down

Shake it now

The life that I choose could be a whole lot better
But I don’t give a damn about that
Because being with you is like getting too drunk
Laying ill and I’m falling down flat
I’m upside down
I’m upside down

Here I am on bended knees
Waiting for a word from you
To knock me down
I’m standing around
Like a hanging broken dream
You

Life in your bed can be out of this world
But I don’t give a damn about that
Why’d you mind?

Ever since you looked at me,
Said, “Do you really like music like that?”
I’m upside down
I’m upside down

Listen here, I am drunk again
Waiting for a word from you
When you’re walking out that door
I ran ahead of you
I can’t stop loving you

Oh yeah, oh yeah, all right

I’m upside down
I am upside down

And here I am on bended knees
Waiting for a word from you
To knock me down, hand me your hand
The hand that threw a kind woo
I can’t stop loving you

 

SONG INFORMATION

Released: 1990
Found on: 1990 Summer Demo

“Upside Down” was recorded and included on a 1990 demo. At the time, the band had stopped using the name On A Friday and had temporarily settled on Shindig, but that was soon dropped and they reverted back to On A Friday before ultimately choosing Radiohead in 1992.

Because Phil Selway was temporarily living in Ireland at the time, the band used a Portastudio 4-track and a drum machine.
