Inspiring Song by Florez



My playlist randomly played a great song today - "Hold Me Down" by Florez. The album Find Yourself came out in 2003, but the lyrics are timeless.

This blog does not have the option of posting songs, so I made a simple video just so that you can hear the song.


"Hold Me Down"

I can't tell no lies
my bloods been shed
it's in your eyes
your hands are red

My shades are drawn
head hung in shame
I might be wrong
but it's your I blame

My strength is like an ever ebbing tide
and in my weakness I concede my pride

I let you beat me down

I'm at a loss for words and I can't speak
But I will scream and I will scream away

If you kick me while I'm down

I will quicken my resolve until the blood you spent it due
I won't be conquered by your hate instead I'll wait and let it conquer you

I will be strong inside
but will I survive what you put me through

eyes straight ahead
my heads on straight.
Hear what I say,
I will do better today.

My strength is surging like a rising tide
and my weakness took the place of my pride

I've finally come around

My mouth is full of words that I can't speak
so I scream and I will scream until I weep

If you kick me while I'm down

I will quicken my resolve until your punishment is through
I won't be conquered by your hate instead I'll wait and let it conquer you

I will be stronger
because I have survived what you put me through

But hold me down
until I break free and I will fly
but I wont come down
until I touch the highest reaches of the sky

But hold me down
under water till I cannot breathe
but I won't drown
I will rise up and I'll be redeemed

I meant what I said, I am a new man today
