Will Ross - Eastbound and Down

from by Will Ross




I wrote this song shortly after arriving into B.C following a tour around the country playing music. I was in a rough head space at the time and was also taking random skytrains around Vancouver in order to better associate myself with my new surroundings. Relationships can hurt. As the song progresses toward the end, the tone changes and drops into a happier breakdown at the end. This was to help signify that only time will heal all wounds. What feels like the end of the world at the beginning, can turn into a learning experience and a good life lesson after time.


I took a train down eastbound
Out near Surrey way,
I couldn't help but keep my head down
Stuck in a rut, I guess that's all there is to say

Will someone get me out of my head
I've been here way too long
I keep playing back, oh the time that she said
That she'd promise not to break my heart

I left my love in Kamloops
It seemed the only thing to do
Though unwise, I didn't even say goodbye
I couldn't bear to see your eyes and know we're through

Some say love ain't nothing but a game
But it's a game I always seem to lose
And I'll confide that at this moment in my life
It feels like the gallows, and I'm hanging from your noose
Oh baby it's like the gallows, and I'm hanging from your news
Like the gallows, like the gallows, and I'm hanging from your noose.
