Alex Winston – The Day I Died

Alex Winston released her new The ‘Day I Died’ EP very recently, and one of my favorite songs out of the three fantastic tracks on the record is a bittersweet ballad named Down Low. I’m very fond of Alex’s crisp and sharp vocals, and she takes them to sensational levels of emotive raspy breathlessness on the melancholic synthpop song. This is her voice at its best. Down Low is one of her most fluidly soothing and floaty songs, compared to some of her spunkier songs of the past. There’s an 80′s evoking dreaminess to the power ballad and a Kate Bush like quality to her voice. I didn’t think I could fall even more for Alex Winston, but I have.

The Day I Died by Alex Winston Lyrics
[Verse 1]
Give me an exorcism, lord knows how bad I need one
Said it’s been such a while since I’ve seen your white tiles
In a smile position without an opposition
Well I guess I’m alive but I feel three thousand miles away

[Pre Chorus]
(I see you coming to me)
Away
(I see you coming to me)

[Chorus]
I was asleep until the day I died
I was dug deep, six feet, eyes open wide
Slack jawed on the assembly line
That I built in my own mind
I was asleep until the day I died

(I see you coming to me)

[Verse 2]
I need an exorcism, this ain’t no way of living
Slow and steady down the aisle but my heart is a child
With an inner demon pleading to be forgiven
Shake me out if I’m alive, cause I feel three thousand miles away

[Pre Chorus]
[Chorus]

(I see you coming to me) [x7]

[Chorus]

[Outro]
I see you coming to me
I see you coming… (But I heard every word)
I see you coming to me
I see you coming… (But I heard every word)
(Until the day I died)
(But I heard every word)
I see you coming…
I see you coming… (But I heard every word)
You coming for me
