"Play You Down" as written by and Steven Thomas Moakler....
I should be out there having my fun
Drinking beers with the boys and watching time run
I should be listening to what I said when I said
Stay away from who you can’t forget
Now you come pushing my heart around
All you had to do was breathe

And I can’t play you down
But I won’t pull the trigger
If I said how I felt it would be something bigger
So fast I’ll be faced first flat on the ground
It’s a losing game trying to play you down

I should be thinking about other stuff
Maybe read a book on how to run from love
Cause you drag me down by the heels
Had me busted up for years and years
And now you come pushing my heard around
All you had to do was breathe

And I can’t play you down
But I won’t pull the trigger
If I said how I felt it would be something bigger
So fast I’ll be faced first flat on the ground
It’s a losing game trying to play you down

I don’t want to tell you what you already know
Everybody’s talking
Everybody’s talking
I need some more time just to be alone

But I can’t play you down
And I won’t pull the trigger
If I said how I felt it would be something bigger
So fast I’ll be faced first flat on the ground
Cause it’s a losing game trying to play you down
It’s a losing game trying to play you down
It’s a losing game trying to play you down

I think everybody knows it
I think everybody knows
