Don't Push Me Down

I don't really know
But clearly it ain't what you think
Try to hide but does it show
Do my tears roll down when I blink
Rose baby touch my face
Hold me tight and tell me its alright
Coz I fear if you don't
I will surely breakdown and cry

The twilight is ending
and with it me too
My heart may be stone but
stones wither too
Why can't I get what
I've strived for so hard
Should I fall on my knees
and beg with my blood

I try to hold dust
its all that I have
It slips through my fingers
to a desert of sand
The dreams that I've dreamt
bring nothing but tears
Tears from failing
failing my fears

Don't push me down
Don't push me down
I'll fall, I'll bleed
But I'll come around
Don't push me down
Don't push me down
I'll fall, I'll bleed
But I'll come around

Don't patronize me
But don't reject
I don't ask for praises
just a little respect
I wonder if my dreams
are built on sand
Will it all fall to nothing
or will it stand

I've started my journey
and I cant go back
The blood in my veins
is turning black
The only way I see
is ahead of me
But the strength in
my feet is failing me

I'll hold my ground
Don't push me down
Every step is more
than life to me
I'll walk to death
If it takes me there
But I'll never surrender
to thee......
