Take A Step Back Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Go tell it on the mountain, like it burst forth like a fountain
Try to shake the deep foundations of this land
High up on lover's land, they got hotel rooms so grand
And no one here knows what goes behind closed doors

Take a step back to the middle of the track
You know it's rumored all around, says you know it's come to town
Come on and take a step back to the middle of the track
'Cause the rumors are around said you're coming back to town

And with every little lie, you come and never blink an eye
You know you've got yourself all tied up when you're around
I've got the modern world behind me, like a needle in a haystack find me
They build you up and then they're going to burn you down

So take a step back to the middle of the track
The rumors all around, said you're coming back to me
Come on and take a step back to the middle of the track
Says you know it's going upside, you know what's going down

I'm haunted by the wanderer deep inside
Wanted by, haunted by
I'm haunted by the wanderer that's deep in my soul

Gonna look back to the middle of the track
And you know it's going upside
Le, le, da, le
Telling me, ah ha, uh hu

Ooh, look back to the middle of the track
And you know it's going upside
Telling me, ah ha, uh hu

Don't tell me it's a bad dream
Don't tell me it's not what it seems
Don't tell me pretty soon you know
You gonna call me now

Gotta stop the roller coaster
Gotta make the most of it
Gonna pull you down
Gotta make the most of it
Better pull you down
