I sat by the phone today
Waiting for you to call so I
Could pick it up and say hello to you and you would say hello to me
Just like my dreams

Is there a reason why you're gone, I didn't mean to be so wrong
I tried so hard to be the best that I could be, but still it seems
I always end up alone

Is there something inside me
That I don't see
Is there something wrong here with the way I love

Down, You can't hold me down
Cause when no one is around I won't be standing here
Just waiting for you to come back home again
Down, You can't hold me down because I finally understand that what you did Is not so bad in fact its, better for me

Did I not give you enough room?
Was I overtaking you
And did my love for you just blind me from what I was doing wrong

I never meant you harm

Or was I not good enough for you, is that the reason why we're through
Was I not half the man you thought that I would be but now you see
Is that why you leave me
Is that why you leave me

Is there something inside me
That I don't see
Is there something wrong here with the way I love

Down, You can't hold me down
Cause when no one is around I won't be standing here
Just waiting for you to come back home again
Down, You can't hold me down because I finally understand that what you did Is not so bad in fact its, better for me

And Lord knows I try to bring back my dreams
Cause I held onto yours for so long that I couldn't hold my own

Down, You can't hold me down
Cause when no one is around I won't be standing here
Just waiting for you to come back home again
Down, You can't hold me down because I finally understand that what you did Is not so bad in fact its, better for me

Down
Down
You can't hold me down again
You can't hold me down
Down
You can't hold me down again
