I won't let you bring me back, bring me back
No, I won't let you bring me back, bring me back
You can throw all the fits and the tantrums you want
But I won't let you bring, bring me back down

Way back in '95, scraped knees, tough love, ah yeah
Grass stains were just a sign of the times
Big kids, look at us now, too adult to say, "big whoop"
Let any old bummer get under my hide

But ooh I'm gonna take control

'Cause I won't let you bring me back
Bring me back down in the dumps
No, I won't let you bring me back
Bring me back down in the dumps

So I'll walk that tightrope wire but what am I really made of? yeah
Scared of heights like I'm scared of falling in love

But ooh I'm gonna take control

Because I won't let you bring me back
Bring me back down in the dumps
No, I won't let you bring me back
Bring me back down in the dumps
You can throw all the fits and the tantrums you want
But I won't let you bring, bring me back down

So think back to '95 and reach arms length deep ah yeah
Cause they'll try to pierce your childhood hide

But ooh I'm gonna take control

'Cause I won't let you bring me back
Bring me back down in the dumps
No, I won't let you bring me back
Bring me back down in the dumps

I won't let you bring me back
Bring me back down in the dumps
I say that I won't let you bring me back
Bring me back down in the dumps

I say that I won't let you bring me back
Bring me back down in the dumps
I say that I won't let you bring me back
Bring me back down in the dumps
You can throw all the fits and the tantrums you want
But I won't let you bring, bring me back down

You can throw all the fits and the tantrums you want
But I won't let you bring, bring me back
