Yellowcard - The Takedown Lyrics

I feel things changing when I move
(It's a distance, it's a difference)
I'll cross this planet without you
(And you might call this a downfall)
It's one long night that I'm passing through
(It's a dark one; what have I done?)
It's one long night

[Chorus:]
Don't turn your back on me now
You can't do this
Don't say you can live without
You can't do this alone
How did I end up like this, the lonely one, your greatest take down?
You take me down

Left last night with a long goodbye
(We cement why through a phone line)
I sold you thoughts that multiply
(That I don't know how to let go)
We've been here many times before
(I am empty when you leave me)
What's one more?

[Chorus]

You take me down

I won't get by; I won't heal in time
I won't get by

Don't turn your back on me now
You can't do this
Don't say you can't live without
You can do this alone
How did I end up like this, the chosen one, your greatest take down?
You take me down
