We can't
We can't back down (x4)

Not right now
We can't back down
Not right now
We can't back down
We can't back down

Don't close your eyes
We're all in this together
Wherever we draw the line
We're not gonna straddle across it
Or lose it

We can't back down
There's too much at stake
This is serious
Don't walk away
We can't pretend it's not happening
In our own backyard
Our own home plate
(No way)
We've been called out
(We've been called out)
Do you hear your name?
(Yeah)
I'm not confused
Let's win this thing
(Let's do it)
We can't back down
There's too much at stake
Don't walk away
Don't walk away, yeah

Don't get me wrong
I don't like confrontation
I'd rather we all just get along
Music should be undivided, united

We can't back down
There's too much at stake
This is serious
Don't walk away
We can't pretend it's not happening
In our own backyard
Our own home plate
(No way)
We've been called out
(We've been called out)
Do you hear your name?
(Yeah)
I'm not confused
Let's win this thing
(Let's do it)
We can't back down
There's too much at stake
Don't walk away
Don't walk away, yeah

We got a situation that we can't ignore
'Cause ignorance is not bliss
We don't have to take this, no
With every big decision
Comes an equally important share of the risk
We gotta take this

We can't back down
There's too much at stake
This is serious
Don't walk away
We can't pretend it's not happening
In our own backyard
Our own home plate
We've been called out!
Do you hear your name?
I'm not confused
Let's win this thing
We can't back down
There's too much at stake
Don't walk away
Don't walk away, yeah
We can't back down

We can't back down
Not right now
We can't back down

    Demi you hav a great, extremely wonderful and amazing voice. This song was so encouraging to me infact I just wanna say that I have been praying and I'm still praying to have ur voice. I love all your songs I've heard so far and I'm looking foward to hearing ur song-'skyscraper'. Just help me with one itsy bitsy favor, help me tell your best friend selena gomez that I'm her biggest fan and I looove her song-a year without rain, love you like a love song and hit the lights. You know what you guys should do a duet and I'm sure with two unbelievably amazing voices you'll beat all the stars and be top of the list. Bye I looove you selena.
