Take Me Down (You Can't) - By Carroll Bryant

TAKE ME DOWN (YOU CAN'T) - By Carroll Bryant 



You're learning how to be somebody
Growing into your own
You're probably better off just falling
In love and all alone 

It's always gonna be eccentric 
When passion gets hotter than hell
Time has a way to help you forget it
But I can see in your eyes that you remember it well

Take me down
Isn't that your one objective?
Shake me around
Like the rag-doll bitch you think I am
(You can't) Take me down
Power can be so subjective
Take me down
Even if you really think you can
You can't

I'm starting to believe the whispers
This is gonna end the worst possible way
Stand up, your ground, or stand and deliver
No soup for you today

It's always gonna be electric 
When two powder kegs meet head to head
Face to face and we both regret it 
Preying on each other and praying for death

Take me down
Isn't that your one objective?
Shake me around
Like the rag-doll bitch you think I am
(You can't) Take me down
Power can be so subjective
Take me down
Even if you really think you can
You can't

I lay awake at night waiting for your skin
Together, wrong or right
Making the baby we so aptly name, Sin

I fall asleep sometimes waiting for you to put it in
The dagger

It's always gonna be eccentric 
When passion gets hotter than hell
Time has a way to help you forget it
But I can see in your eyes that you remember it well

You're growing into your own

Take me down
Isn't that your one objective?
Shake me around
Like the rag-doll bitch you think I am
(You can't) Take me down
Power can be so subjective
Take me down
Even if you really think you can
You can't

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