Tear It Down
Lyrics
You were like the sun 'n me like the moon at night
The world made sense you'd say I made everything feel alright

Go ahead and tear it down
Tear it down to the ground, maybe
You don't know, no you don't know, you don't know what you found
You don't know, no you don't know, you don't know what you found

You're so perfect you'd say I'd say you're the answer to my dreams
I think you felt the love I did but somehow it isn't what it seems

Go ahead 'n tear it down
Tear it down to the ground, maybe
You don't know, no you don't know, you don't know what you found
You don't know, no you don't know, you don't know what you found

Now you are so far away, our lives turned blue 'n gray when you didn't stay
You know it's true, love came shining through for all to see
We had it all, you and me, we had it all

See my shattered heart my life hasn't been the same since you left
I've got to say I don't feel as well as I did before we met

Go ahead 'n tear it down
Tear it down to the ground, maybe
You don't know, no you don't know, you don't know what you found
You don't know, no you don't know, you don't know what you found


Go ahead and tear it down, tear it down to the ground
I see you smile when you get your way, why the hell would I want to stay?

I always thought you were on my side
When things got hard I saw you run and hide

Go ahead and tear it down, soon I won't hear a sound
Your lips move but I don't hear a thing, as I strum my guitar and sing

Tear it down!
Tear it down!

Now that my dreams I can finally see
Lift me up since you let go of me


Tear it down!
Tear it down!
