  • Way down
    I've been way down
    Underneath this skin
    Waiting to hear my name again

    I'm sorry
    Nothing can hold me
    I adore you still
    If I hear them calling
    And nothing can hold me

    Way down (Do you really want me?)
    All the way down (Do you really want me?)
    I will hear your voice (Do you really want me?)
    But I'll no longer understand (No one's really loved me)

    I'm sorry
    Nothing can hold me
    I adore you still
    But I hear them calling

    I was looking to the sky
    When I knew I'd be swimming home
    And I cannot betray my kind
    They are here, it's my time

    I'm sorry
    Nothing can hold me (Do you really want me?)
    I adore you still
    But I hear them calling, (calling)
    And nothing can hold me Writer/s: AMY LEE, WILL B. HUNT
