Build Me Up ~ Lyrics

Written by Elli Hart

 

He caught his change in a beat up rusted can 

He changed his name, he opposed the corrupted man 

He lights one up, standin out in the street 

He throws in down, too scared to admit defeat 

There ain’t no use in tryin’ when they don’t even know your name 

You build me up 

 

He marks her face, with anything that man can find (and) 

Every night, she makes love to a bottle of wine 

She Lights one up, and tries to forget the pain 

She throws in down, and runs threw the pouring rain 

There ain’t no use in tryin’ when they don’t even know your name 

 

You build me up, You throw me down 

You build me up, You push me ‘round 

You build me up, You lay me down 

There ain’t no use in tryin’ when they don’t even know your name 

You build me up 

 

She walks the street, she’s a lady of the night 

She sells her love for her addictive appetite 

She lights one up, “Hey Mister would you like to see?” 

She throws it down, “I’ll be whoever you want me to be” 

There ain’t no use in tryin’ Nooo 

There ain’t no use in fightin’ 

 

Just when you thought, you had it all worked out 

Something comes along, and pushes you down 

But you don’t know, you don’t know which way to go 

 

You build me up, You throw me down 

You build me up, You push me ‘round 

You build me up, You lay me down 

There ain’t no use in tryin’ when they don’t even know your name 

You build me up
