Take Me Down

The Pretty Reckless

vistas 889

Been waitin' at these crossroads
Forever and a day
On a guy to buy my soul
I spend all night and day
How much harder can I play?
You know I gave my life to Rock n' Roll
Here we go

Mama begged me please
Yes, she got down on her knees
Said: You'll burn in that Mississippi sun
But I'm the only one that's standing here
So, mama, don't you have no fear
I’m either last or I've already won
Here I go

Take me down
Take me down
Take me down
Won't you take me down?

Standin' at the crossroads, a dried up pen in hand
The conversation went like this
Tell me your desire, why you pulled me from the fire
And we'll seal the deal with a kiss

Said: I wanna raise the dead, find a note that I can shred
On my walls I scrawl my gods
Don't care what happens when I die
As long as I'm alive all I wanna do is rock, rock, rock

Take me down
Take me down
Take me down
Won't you take me down?

Oh, sign with the devil, sign with the devil
Sign with the devil, oh!
Sign with the devil, sign with the devil
Sign with the devil, oh!

Sign with the devil, sign with the devil
Sign with the devil, oh!
Sign with the devil, sign with the devil
Sign with the devil, oh!

Take me down
Take me down
Take me down
Won't you take me down?

Take me down (sign with the devil, sign with the devil, sign with the devil, oh)
Take me down
Take me down (sign with the devil, sign with the devil, sign with the devil, oh)
Won't you take me down?
Down

(I got a record deal)
