[Verse]
I should pray for Adelaide
But she wouldn't win this fight
Black and blue dear Adelaide
So many scars to hide

[Pre-Chorus]
Waving my hands
You don't break
You don't understand
Lie to my face
Run away
You're just that kind of man

[Chorus]
Every moment I surrender
Such a waste of love
You can't hold me down boy
Tell me what the hell you want
And I don't wanna cry about it
I don't wanna fight about it
I just gotta let go, I just gotta let go
I don't wanna cry about it
I don't wanna fight about it
I just gotta let you go

[Verse]
I should pray for Adelaide
But she don't hear a goddamn word that I say
Oh I'm so ashamed of Adelaide
How do you justify every moment he takes

[Pre-Chorus]
Waving my hands
You don't break
You don't understand
Lie to my face
Run away
You're just that kind of man

[Chorus]
Every moment I surrender
Such a waste of love
You can't hold me down boy
Tell me what the hell you want
And I don't wanna cry about it
I don't wanna fight about it
I just gotta let go, I just gotta let go
I don't wanna cry about it
I don't wanna fight about it
I just gotta let you go

[Interlude]
And I'm buried in the silence
And my eyes are closed
Got me like a spider
Trapped in your

[Bridge] (x4)
You can't hold me down boy
You can't hold me down boy
You can't hold me down boy

[Chorus]
Every moment I surrender
Such a waste of love
You can't hold me down boy
Tell me what the hell you want
And I don't wanna cry about it
I don't wanna fight about it
I just gotta let go, I just gotta let go
I don't wanna cry about it
I don't wanna fight about it
I just gotta let you go

[Verse]
I should pray for Adelaide
But she wouldn't win this fight
Black and blue dear Adelaide
So many scars to hide
