You can't bring me down, you can't bring me down

Back in the day when nothing really mattered to me
I only saw with my eyes what they wanted to see
And everything around me seemed to never change
Looking for an easy way out, someone to blame
Why does it work this way, still today?
You wanna take somebody down along the way?
But I won't let that one be me, 'cause I don't want the drama it brings
See, today isn't "back in the day" anymore
I know a little more than I did before
So, don't forget before you try bringing me down
What goes around always comes back around

You can't bring me down
Do you hear what I'm trying to say?
You can't bring me down
I'll never turn the other way
You can't bring me down
What is it you're trying to say?
You can't bring me down
It's not like I'm running away

So, you think you can see inside my mind?
You probably could if you just took a little time
I know exactly what you're trying to say
But sitting in the stands ain't the same as playing the game
So, I can't comprehend in my mind
Just why we can't leave it all behind
So, come on and stand beside, and hold the line
'Cause tonight is the night we cry

You can't bring me down
Do you hear what I'm trying to say?
You can't bring me down
I'll never turn the other way
You can't bring me down
What is it you're trying to say?
You can't bring me down
It's not like I'm running away

Oh

Why can't we feel what it takes for us to be real?
Why can't we see what it takes for us to believe?
Why do we say all of these things that bring us down?

You can't bring me down
Do you hear what I'm trying to say?
You can't bring me down
I'll never turn the other way
You can't bring me down
What is it you're trying to say?
You can't bring me down
It's not like I'm running away
It's not like I'm running away
You can't bring me down
