Lyrics

You Won't Take Me Down

Written By: SOUNDACITY

Wake up from the dream you are sailing into
Sometimes reality is so far away from your sight,
But you won’t break me
Run! Run! Run! Don’t turn around,
They will hide from your eyes, while they´re planting a seed in your mind,

But you won’t break me, you won’t take me…

DOWN where the winds are blowing
DOWN where the locks will break
DOWN where they feed from sorrows
GRAB your soul don’t let it slip away

But you won’t break me you won’t take me
DOWN

Hear the whisper hope is all around,
Silence is the noise when darkness takes over light
Stay awake the rain the rain is coming now
Back to the words:
Ashes to ashes, love waits on the other side

But you won’t break me, you won’t take me…

DOWN where the winds are blowing
DOWN where the locks will break
DOWN where they feed from sorrows
GRAB your soul don`t let it slip away

Hit The Ground

Written By: SOUNDACITY

I need tears, I need Hope
I need someone to hold onto
I'm so blind, I'm so deaf
I'm so lost I need faith

I need tears, I need Hope
I need someone to hold onto
I'm so blind, I'm so deaf
I'm so lost I need faith

I need you to hold my hand
I need you to heal me up
I need to forget about all the pain
I need to stay hungry
I need to stay foolish
I want my heart in my hands

Cos' I'm a fool
And I need you
I'm a fool
My head is ready to hit the ground
