I'M GOIN' DOWN

Album version


We sit in the car outside your house, I can feel the heat coming 'round
I go to put my arm around you and you give me a look like I'm way out of bounds
Well, you let out one of your bored sighs, well lately when I look into your eyes
I'm going down, down, down, down
I'm going down, down, down, down
I'm going down, down, down, down
I'm going down, down, down, down

We get dressed up and we go out, baby, for the night
We come home early burning, burning, burning in some fire fight
I'm sick and tired of you setting me up, yeah, setting me up just to
Knock-a, knock-a, knock-a me down, down, down, down
I'm going down, down, down, down
I'm going down, down, down, down
I'm going down, down, down, down
Right now!

I pull you close now baby, but when we kiss I can feel a doubt
I remember back when we started, my kisses used to turn you inside out
I used to drive you to work in the morning, Friday night I'd drive you all around and
You used to love to drive me wild, yeah, but lately girl you get your kicks from just
Driving me down, down, down, down
I'm going down, down, down, down
I'm going down, down, down, down
I'm going down, down, down, down

I'm going down, down, down, down
I'm going down, down, down, down
I'm going down, down, down, down
I'm going down, hey, you knock-a me, knock-a me down

I'm going down, down, down, down
I'm going down, hey, you knock-a me, knock-a me down
I'm going down, down, down
Yeah, I'm going down, down, you knock-a, you knock-a me down

Hey, down, you knock-a, you knock-a me down
Hey, baby, you knock-a, you knock-a me down
Hey, hey, down, you knock-a, you knock-a me down
Hey, hey, down, you knock-a, you knock-a me

Hey, down, say na na na na na
Yeah na na
Say na na na na na
[Fades out]
