Don't Hold Me Down

Down, Down

Understanding is the hardest part
I know you’re waiting for a different life to start
But I would rather take my chances and lose
And not expect any forgiveness from you

Stop clouding my vision
Stop changing my direction
Stop trying to choose my passion for me
I won’t let it happen

Cause it’s a wave that’ll push you, make you drown
A wildfire that’ll burn you to the ground
One day I know that you’ll come around
But I won’t let you hold me

Letting go of you may be hard
But I would do it over again a thousand times
Cause you see my decisions as flawed and stained
And I don’t have a reason to feel ashamed of them

Stop clouding my vision
Stop changing my direction
Stop trying to choose my passion for me
I won’t let it happen

Cause it's a wave that’ll push you, make you drown
A wildfire that’ll burn you to the ground
One day I know that you’ll come around
But I won’t let you hold me down
Don’t hold me down

Cause under all these lights
Somehow I’m in my comfort place
I’ll take my dark times, bring them to life
Cause I’ve made up my mind to stay too late
And give my all in all it takes
Down, Down

Stop clouding my vision
Stop changing my direction
Stop trying to choose my passions for me
I won’t let it happen
It’s a wave that’ll push you, make you drown
A wildfire that’ll burn you to the ground

One day I know that you’ll come around
But I won’t let you hold me down
Don’t hold me down, down

[Lyrics]


I'll Find My Way Home

Hey, we’ve been heading down this way
Down this same road we have stayed on
That we’ve always taken
As time has gone by, we’ve seen the darkness, we’ve seen light
But we keep swerving left and right
The energy just keeps on changing

If this is all just a game
I don’t wanna play, I don’t wanna play
Cause your bait has chased me away
We’re turning right down memory lane

And now I know where we’re going
Cause I feel the air, it’s only getting cold again
So let me out, before we hit the peak
Each time you let me fall further deep
But if you leave me here on my own
I’ll find my way home

Sorry’s, I know that I don’t need
All this time you had fooled me, let me believe in a lie
But you insisted, so darling I listened
Somehow I had missed it, you watched me burn in this fire

Cause to you it’s all just a game
All your selfish ways and higher stakes
And you’d lie and hide and betray
To make sure it all goes your way

Now I know where we’re going
Cause I feel the air, it’s only getting cold again
So let me out, before we hit the peak
Each time you let me fall further deep
But if you leave me here on my own
I’ll find my way home

Home, home, ohh
Home, home, ohh

And now I know where we’re going
Cause I feel the air, it’s only getting cold again
Now I know where we’re going
Cause I feel the air, it’s only getting colder
As we keep climbing up onto the peak
So you can let me fall in the deep
But if you leave me here on my own
If you leave me on the side of the road
If you leave me here, I’ll let go
I’ll find my way home

[Lyrics]


Lighthouse

I’m like a lighthouse to you
I’m standing tall in the dark if you ever need help
But I’m so alone cause you just swim around
In the messes you make for yourself

You’re gonna drown in them, you’re gonna drown
Cause the storm won’t be kind to you now
Now that you’re a runaway, running far away
From all the love that you felt

Cause I was everything that you wanted
And you held me so I would be safe in your arms
But the moment you let yourself feel something honest
You’ve gone out so far, let me guide you
Through the rough waters

I’m like a lifeguard for you
I’m reaching out every chance I get like such a fool
Cause the tides come and go and I act like I’m strong enough
To control the pull of the moon

You can’t live with them, you can’t live
I may as well be certain you’ll let yourself down
You can’t live this way, you can’t live
Running from all the love that you felt

Cause I was everything that you wanted
And you held me so I would be safe in your arms
But the moment you let yourself feel something honest
You’ve gone out too far, let me guide you
Through the rough waters

Let me guide you, let me guide you and like I promised
I will guide you through the rough waters
I will guide you through the rough water

[Lyrics]


Possibilities

You never come back to say good morning
I wanna take my time and stay here with you
You light my heart on fire, keep it burning
Why do you still hide in the dark?
When the world is made for me and you, ooh

Sometimes I wonder how it all came to be
They told me “just close your eyes, it’s closer than you think”
So I cleared out my mind, forgot everything inside that was slowly killing me
It opened me up to these possibilities

It’s time to break this constant chain
I won’t let you live in my mind
I don’t wanna have to come down off this high
My eyes are open, arms are waiting
For the day they’ll finally meet with yours
But every night ’till then I’ll be coming back for more and more

And I still wonder how it all came to be
They told me “just close your eyes, it’s closer than you think”
So I cleared out my mind, forgot everything inside that was slowly killing me
It opened me up to these possibilities

Oooh, it opened me up
Oooh, it opened me up

And I still wonder how this all came to be
They told me to close my eyes and let it come to me
So I cleared out my mind, forgot everything inside that was slowly killing me
It opened me up to these possibilities
It opened me up to these possibilities
It opened me up to these possibilities

[Lyrics]


This Love

Staring at the ceiling, tossing and turning all night
Just thinking it’s a been a while since I really knew how to feel
And we both saw it coming out of the corner of our eyes
It doesn’t make it any easier on me

Cause I’m tongue tied and I’m holding my breath
Can’t get the words out of my mouth just yet
And I’ll get over it, but I’ll never forget this love

Am I selfish for hoping that you can’t get your mind off of me?
Cause you know it’s what you feel, at least
If love is what it seemed to be
And am I stupid for making you leave?
For wishing that for that little bit of time I had let you stay with me?

But I was tongue tied, I was holding my breath
Couldn’t get the words out of my mouth just yet
And I’ll get over it, but I’ll never forget this love

My tears have been cried, but there’s still a weight on my chest
I can’t get these thoughts out of my mind just yet
But I’ll get over it, ooh I’ll never forget this love
This love

[Lyrics]
