background
The melody was written by John Giblin with lyrics by Jim.

"John brought so much to our music during his period with Simple Minds. Perhaps the highlight of his contribution being his composition for our song "Let It All Come Down." - Jim, 25th August 2014


lyrics
So let it all come, let it all come down.
Let it all come, let it all come down.

Sweet tears roll like a river from your eyes,
Get close let's sleep tonight.
When you wake there's a new day dawning,
When you wake there's a cold wind blowing,
When day breaks there's a light shines through.

I'm still here with you when the morning comes.
I need you with me when the day begins.

Oh let it all come, let it all come down.
Why don't you let it all come, let it all come down.

All is in control, love is on the open road,
Make me want to live, you make me want to die.

When you wake there's a new day dawning,
When you wake there's a cold wind blowing,
When day breaks there's a light shining through.

Oh let it all come, let it all come down.
