Lyrics

Thought I'd never be waking
On the kitchen floor
But here I lie, not the first time
Now my morning has broken
And it brings the fear
My minds falling, fall in

Then I feel my pulse quickening
But regrets can't change anything
Yeah I feel my pulse quickening
When your name lights up the screen

Oh Joy
When you call me I was giving up,
Oh I was giving in
Joy
Set my mind free
I was giving up, Oh I was giving in

How'd you always know when I'm down?
How'd you always know when I'm down?

Take a walk through the wreckage
Clearing out my head
I hear your eyes roll, right down the phone
I'm your walking disaster, keep on dragging me
From self-pity, poor me

Then I feel my pulse quickening
But I wouldn't change a thing

Oh Joy
When you call me
I was giving up, Oh I was giving in
Joy, set my mind free
I was giving up, Oh I was giving in

How'd you always know when I'm down?
How'd you always know when I'm down?

As the night dissolves into this final frame
You're a sweet release, you save me from my brain
From my brain, from my brain, from my brain

Oh Joy
When you call me
I was giving up, Oh I was giving in
Joy, set my mind free I was giving up,
Oh I was giving in

How'd you always know when I'm down?
How'd you always know when I'm down?
I feel Joy when you call me
How'd you always know when I'm down?

The "total plays" shown on this page simply refers to the total number of times our archiving system has seen it being played since it was launched on the 28th of July 2014. It should not be relied upon as an exact figure for total all-time plays as the true figure could vary by quite a substantial amount.
