I've been laying low
Living in the shadows
Spending time alone
Conversations with the wall

Hanging on
I'm just trying to matter
And I remain
Trying to make some sense of it all

I've been here before I'm familiar with the pain
But I ain't running no more there's one thing changed
Ain't going down this time
This time I ain't going down

Like an undertow
I feel the promise of the nighttime
But I've been down that road
And my search came to an end

I hit the motherload
Enough blues for a lifetime
Now I'm digging deep inside
Trying to find my way back again

You know you've entered the danger zone
When you look in the eyes and there's no one home
Ain't going down this time
This time I ain't going down

Deep in the night
I miss a woman's touch
The fire burns strong
And I'm drawn to the flame

But I pay the price
When I get caught up in the heartbeat
And passion flows
Unrestrained

No one left to blame I'm faced with the truth
And it's all too plain when there's nothing left to lose
Ain't going down this time
This time I ain't goin
