Meat Loaf – Tear Me Down lyrics

Listen
I was born on the other side
Just always looking to you
I made it over the great divide
Now I'm coming for you

Your forces lined up in battle
Your soldiers and your machines
The sun been blacked out by shadows
The darkest hour now you've ever seen

And I'm easy and I'm serious
They try and tear me down
You want me baby I dare you
Try and tear me down

I rose up on the doctor's slab
Like Lazarus from the pit
And everyone wants to take a stab
Decorate me with blood, graffiti and spit

I've been held up on money
I've been beaten out of spite
You want a piece of me honey?
Lose or win
You know you've been in a fight

And I'm easy and I'm serious
They try and tear me down
You want me baby I dare you
Try and tear me down

Girl: On March 6th, 1836 the walls of the Alamo fell to the Mexican army. After a 12-day siege, the troops of Santa Ana were victorious but too exhausted to hold on and the Texans won the war. It's further from El Paso to Texarkana, then from New York to Chicago. And when it joined the Union, Texas was the biggest state. Yeah, everything from Texas is big, larger than life and none bigger than little Marvin Aday. So big his daddy called him Meat Loaf. He grew into a big man, with a big voice. And he sings big songs and has big hits. You can try and tear him down.

Now there ain't much difference
Between a bridge and a wall
Without me right in the middle baby
You'll be nothing at all

And I'm easy and I'm serious
They try and tear me down
You want me baby I dare you

Try and tear me down
