Nina Gordon — Got Me Down lyrics

And this is the way it's going to be
I gave him away and now I'm free
But he was the life I meant to lead
There's nothing left of me but
This is my melody
And why must the night crawl by like this
And why do we dwell on what we'll miss
I've got to be careful what I wish my happiness was his
But this is my goodbye kiss
He got me down
And now I'm only singing for my health
Got me down and now I can't get up myself
Got me down oh turn around and tell me when it's over
And it's time for me to get up off the ground
And there's really nothing left to say
But this couldn't wait another day
'cause something confusing but ok
Has got me in it's sway
And this is my getaway
He got me down
And now I'm only singing for my health
Got me down and now I can't get up myself
Got me down oh turn around and tell me when it's over
And it's time for me to get up off the ground
And though I try to hear you
Now I think we've built a wall of sound
Between us
And though you know I love you still
I think we've both just lost the will
He got me down
And now I'm only singing for my health
Got me down and now I can't get up myself
Got me down oh turn around and wake me when it's over
And it's time for me to get up off the ground
He got me down
He got me down
He got me down
