DON'T BACK DOWN

Studio version 11


One, two, three

When the night wind rustle the far away leaves
Rolling down the valley through the cottonwood trees
And the white river rises with last season's rains
I awake in the darkness and I call your name

Don't back down on our love
Don't back down on our love
Don't back down on our love
Don't back down on our love

I lie awake and I know that sleep won't come soon
I watch headlights crawl up and down the wall of the lonesome room

Don't back down on our love
Don't back down on our love
Don't back down on our love
Don't back down on our love

Last night I stood on Black Mountain and looked out to the sea
Where the waters of Mystery River go rushing endlessly
And the love we swore would last as long as those waters roared on
I awoke in the darkness, it was gone, gone, gone

Don't back down on our love
Don't back down on our love
Don't back down on our love

Don't back down on our love
Don't back down
Girsl, don't back down on our love
Don't back down on our love
