Lyrics

Anywhere you go, anyone you meet,
Remember that your eyes can be your enemies
I said, hell is so close and heaven's out of reach
I ain't giving up quite yet,
I've got too much to lose...

Hold me down, sweet and low little girl
Hold me down, sweet and low and I will carry you home
Hold me down, sweet and low little girl
Hold me down... and I'll carry you home

The rain is gonna fall, the sun is gonna shine,
The wind is gonna blow, the water's gonna rise,
She said, when that day comes, look into my eyes,
No one's giving up quite yet, we've got too much to lose...

Hold me down, sweet and low little girl
Hold me down, sweet and low and I will carry you home
Hold me down, sweet and low little girl
Hold me down... and I'll carry you home

And I'll carry you all the way,
When you say you're fine,
But you're still young and out of line,
When all I need's to turn around,
To make it last, to make it count,
I ain't gonna make the same mistakes,
That put my mama in her grave,
I don't wanna be alone

Hold me down, sweet and low little girl
Hold me down, sweet and low and I will carry you home
Hold me down, sweet and low little girl
Hold me down... and I'll carry you home
