The lyrics to "Drag Me Down" are below:

[Verse 1]

I've got fire for a heart, I'm not scared of the dark

You've never seen it look so easy

I got a river for a soul and baby you're a boat

Baby, you're my only reason

[Verse 2]

If I didn't have you there would be nothing left

A shell of a man that could never be his best

If I didn't have you I'd never see the sun

You taught me how to be someone, yeah

[Chorus]

All my life you stood by me when no one else was ever behind me

All these lights that can't blind me

With your love, nobody can drag me down

All my life you stood by me when no one else was ever behind me

All these lights that can't blind me

With your love, nobody can drag me down

Nobody, nobody

Can drag me down

Nobody, nobody

Can drag me down

[Verse 3]

I've got fire for a heart, I'm not scared of the dark

You've never seen it look so easy

I got a river for a soul and baby you're a bow

And baby you're my only reason

If I didn't have you there would be nothing left

A shell of a man who could never be his best

If I didn't have you I'd never see the sun

You taught me how to be someone, yeah

[Chorus]

All my life you stood by me when no one else was ever behind me

All these lights that can't blind me

With your love, nobody can drag me down

But you're love, nobody can drag me down

[Chorus 2x]
