Oh, I don't know what to say
And I have told you lately
That I'm tired of talking about the same old reasons we change
Just take it easy, don't worry about a thing these days

'Cause I'm keeping it cool not thinking about you sticking around or if we should be
Tied down, I'm looking around; I know what I want, so don't hold me down

Oh, I, I don't play games; and I, I have been learning
To just let it all go and stay quiet when I feel like speaking
My mind done whatever it is I need to make clear and just say...

That I'm keeping it cool not thinking about you sticking around you if we should pay
Tied down, I'm looking around; I know why your arms don't hold me down
(Down, down, down)
Don't you hold me down

Whoa, because I'm keeping it cool not thinking about you sticking around or if we should be
Tied down, I'm looking around; I know what I want, so don't hold me down

Oh I, I can't take it
So, please, please, won't you listen
To the troubles all around me? I'm caught up and I'm barely breathin'
But I'm finding that holding on is harder than never leaving
