Hold Me Down Lyrics – Roy Tosh

Chorus:
I’ve been lost and I’ve been found
Had all my walls come fallin’ down
Wish I knew then what I know now to see that
You’re always there to hold me down
I’ve been low and I’ve been high
Built sandcastles to the sky
Why’d it take me this much time to see that
You’re always there to hold me down

Post-Chorus:
You’re always there to hold me down
You’re always there to hold me down

Verse 1:
I threw my pennies in the cistern, wishin’ well, must’ve missed ‘ em
Followin’ the trends, a new day, another system
Funny how еverybody package joy and nevеr ship ’em
Funny how beauty don’t look so beautiful in the endin’, yeah
And now I see it straight (Straight), cut out the dead weight (Weight)
Had to clear all the clutter out of my headspace (Uh huh)
Some call it fate and others might say it’s chance
But I know who’s got us all in His hands (Haha)

Pre-Chorus:
So now I tell all my problems
Bring it on, bring it on, bring it on, yeah
I’m not stoppin’ (Nah)
Keepin’ on, keepin’ on

Chorus:
I’ve been lost and I’ve been found (Found)
Had all my walls come fallin’ down (Uh huh)
Wish I knew then what I know now to see that
You’re always there to hold me down (Yeah)
I’ve been low and I’ve been high (High)
Built sandcastles to the sky (Uh huh)
Why’d it take me this much time to see that
You’re always there to hold me down

Post-Chorus:
You’re always there to hold me down
You’re always there to hold me down (Yeah, uh)

Verse 2:
And all the whips that was custom, time came in to rust ’em (Tell ’em)
Possessions come and they go, that’s why you can never trust ’em (Facts)
I had lots of selfish ambition, I had to crush ’em (Ha)
I would have it all even if I die with nothin’ (Yeah)

Pre-Chorus:
So now I tell all my problems (All my problems)
Bring it on, bring it on, bring it on, yeah (Bring it on)
I’m not stoppin’ (Haha)
Keepin’ on, keepin’ on

Chorus:
I’ve been lost and I’ve been found (Found)
Had all my walls come fallin’ down (Uh huh)
Wish I knew then what I know now to see that
You’re always there to hold me down
I’ve been low and I’ve been high (High)
Built sandcastles to the sky (Yeah)
Why’d it take me this much time to see that
You’re always there to hold me down

Outro:
Da-da-da-da (You’re always there to hold me down)
Da-da-da, da-da-da (You’re always there to hold me down)
