Better Than Ezra Hold Me Down Lyrics

(Transcribed by Brandon Maddox)


I been waitin',
Waitin' is the hardest part.
Lyin' sleepless,
Thinkin 'bout you in the dark.

I can ponder,
What was like a coiled in Spring.
And the memory was just fadin now,
I close my eyes and it's you I see.

I made a promise that I cant keep,
I close my eyes and I can't sleep.
Cause you -
Hold me down,
Hold me down,
Hold me down,
Hold me down.

I been drivin',
Drivin' by your house at night.

I been walkin',
Walkin' in the pale moonlight.

I been balled up,
What was like a coiled up spring.

And the memory is just fadin' now,
I close my eyes and it's you I see.
I made a promise that I can't keep,
I close my eyes and I can't sleep.

Cause you -
Hold me down,
Hold me down,
Hold me down,
Hold me down.

Go into the grave with you.

I made a promise that I can't keep,
I close my eyes and I can't sleep.

Cause you -
Hold me down,
Hold me down,
Hold me down,
Hold me down,
Hold me down,
Hold me down,
Hold me down,
Hold me down.

The last thing I remember was her face,
As I put her in the shallow grave.
She said, "Hold me down,"
Hold me down,
Hold me down,
Hold me down.
Go into the grave with you.
