STAY DOWN (Charlie Grant/Daniel Nitt)

I wasn’t looking for someone
Wasn’t looking for no drama to get in
No stress, no fights, no sleepless nights
Hey Cupid my old friend
Don’t go wasting all your arrows once again
You won’t get me, I’m a moving target.

Oh, my God
I hid away from love
Like I was on the run
But I just saw her face
And now I know, those days are gone.

That girl, that girl
She knocked me to the ground
I’m done, I’m in, oh I am down for the count
Oh love oh love I’m no match for you now,
I can’t go another round
You hit me, and I’m going to stay down
I’m going to stay down.

I was punch drunk, seeing stars
And suddenly my heart it bears her name
In gold and bright and shiny letters
Man, I was so done with love
Now look at what a messed up state I’m in
When having her near is all that matters

Oh, my God
I thought I had it figured out
And oh it’s true, I put up quite a fight
Until she walked into the room

That girl, that girl
She knocked me to the ground
I’m done, I’m in, I am down for the count
Oh love oh love I’m no match for you now
I can’t go another round
You hit me, and I’m going to stay down
I’m going to stay down.

That girl,
She knocked me to the ground
I’m done, I’m in, I am down for the count
Oh love oh love I’m no match for you now
I can’t go another round
You hit me, oh
That girl, that girl
She turned my head around
I’m done, I’m in, I am down for the count
Oh love oh love I’m no match for you now
I can’t go another round
You hit me, and I’m going to stay down
I’m going to stay down
Oh I’m going to stay down
I can’t go another round,
Love hit me and I’m going to stay down.
