Lyrics

Please Don't Take Me Down

...

Please don't take me down
Please don't tear my walls down
Please don't take me down
Please don't tear my walls down

Oh, yeah, yeah

...

Please Don't Shake Me Down (ver. 6)

I never acted like the other kids
I was embarrassed by the things they did
I'd rather hang out with the teacher after school
And follow all her rules

Think that I can be your better half
But you have got to give me half a chance
You got the power to destroy me if you want
Oh god, I'm in your hands

Please don't shake me down
Please don't tear my walls down
Please don't shake me down
I am with you, with you, with you

I hope your mother raised you up in church
And that you'll always be true to your word
And please remember that what goes around
Will come around again, my friend

So please don't shake me down
Please don't tear my walls down
Please don't shake me down
I am with you, with you, with you

Please don't shake me down
Please don't tear my walls down
Please don't shake me down
I am with you, with you, with you
