Hold Me Down
by JLS



Stuck on the dark side
Reaching for daylight
Nothing wrong with alright
But that ain't me
I make suggestions
Answers to questions
All that they told me
Was let it be

'Cause all my life
You know I was dreaming about
About a way to find a way out
You know you know
They can't hold me down
I said a man ain't a meant to fly
But I'm reaching up for the sky
You know you know
You can't hold me down

There's obstacles in my life
But I just can't seem to do right
But I keep trying

It seems like they wanna knock me down
But still I rise
It wont happen this time
Noo owahhh
I've made up my mind

'Cause all my life
You know I was dreaming about
About a way to find a way out
You know you know
They can't hold me down
I said a man ain't a meant to fly
But I'm reaching up for the sky
You know you know
You can't hold me down

Mountain in my way
I can't lie
At times they seem to high
But still I climb

I told them I wont stop til
I reach the other side
They don't get to decide
I've made up my mind

'Cause all my life
You know I was dreaming about
About a way to find a way out
You know you know
They can't hold me down
I said a man ain't a meant to fly
But I'm reaching up for the sky
You know you know
They can't hold me down

Nothing stays the same
Everything's meant to change
See I'm meant to be free
So take your chains off me

[Marvin]
I'm gonna turn it around
Nothing can stop me now
Some things aren't meant to be
This time it's about me

'Cause all my life
You know I was dreaming about
About a way to find a way out
You know you know
They can't hold me down
I said a man ain't a meant to fly
But I'm reaching up for the sky
You know you know
They can't hold me down

Stuck on the dark side
Reaching for daylight
Nothing wrong with alright
But that ain't me
