Lyrics

[Intro: Sample]
[?] X-ray runway three zero
We're two one zero eight, our perimeter, two nine or... nine or one, report initial
Roger that [?] three zero

[Verse 1: Stee Downes]
You know that I've got you thinking
Today I wanna show you how it would be to start again
The ways we've had to live, the ways we've learned to grow Yeah, just open up and be yourself
Times that you feel this, I know you can take a step
Hope that you mean it, I can see it's your defence
Lost what I needed, I'm taking every chance
I want it all, I can't pretend

[Chorus: Stee Downes]
It's never gonna hold me down, and you know it
It's only gonna help me see, yeah
Turning my life around
No, I never listened to the things you said to me
It's never gonna hold me down
'Cause I can belong and I can believe
It's only gonna help me see
If we can be strong and we can't concede
Turning my life around
Just giving it all for what you believe
I know it's serious, it's gotta be

[Verse 2: Stee Downes]
I know you got your reasons
But I could've told you that this could never be the end
Sometimes we have to change, just take control
Open up and breathe again
Now that you feel this, let's take a stand
Know that you need it, I can see it's your demands
True to my word, I'm taking every chance
I want it all I can't pretend

[Chorus: Stee Downes]
It's never gonna hold me down, and you know it
It's only gonna help me see, yeah
Turning my life around
No, I never listened to the things you said to me
It's never gonna hold me down
'Cause I can belong and I can believe
It's only gonna help me see
If we can be strong and we can't concede
Turning my life around
Just giving it all for what you believe
I know it's serious, it's gotta be

[Instrumental]

[Chorus: Stee Downes]
It's never gonna hold me down, and you know it
It's only gonna help me see, yeah
Turning my life around
No, I never listened to the things you said to me
We can't let this feeling hold us down
'Cause I can belong and I can believe
It's only gonna help me see
If we can be strong and we can't concede
Turning my life around
Just giving it all for what you believe
I know it's serious, it's gotta be

[Outro: Stee Downes]
We can't let this feeling hold us down, no way
The world has got you spinning round and round, don't walk away
But you can't let these reasons hold you back another day
You want it all so you gon' have to find your way
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
