lyrics

break down

build he said, go build for me
build for life and beauty and family
all these things are for you to see
lovely fruit is growing on your tree

just take a little stroll around
looks like you can’t grow up till you can break down

so time the prophet had no time to stay
so his words stopped by and went away
a few of us remembered a few of us played
played through the night straight into day

just take a little stroll around
looks like you can’t grow up till you can break down
just take a little stroll around
looks like you can’t grow up till you can break down

oh life sleep tonight if you make it right

because time he don’t think of you
he took all your laughter and beauty too
left you a message for you to use
for everyone it’s a kind of blues

so take a little stroll around
looks like you can’t grow up till you can break down
just take a little stroll around
looks like you can't grow up till you can break down

looks like you can't grow up
looks like you can't grow up
looks like you can't grow up
looks like you can't grow up till you can break down
