Lyrics

[Verse 1: Drew Ramos]
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


[Pre-Chorus: Brady Tutton]
If I didn't have you there would be nothing left
The 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: Sergio Calderon & Michael Conor, Chance Perez and All]
All my life
You stood by me
When no one else was ever behind me
All these lights
They 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
They can't blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down

Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down

[Verse 2: Michael Conor]
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


[Pre-Chorus: Chance Perez and All]
If I didn't have you there would be nothing left (nothing left)
The shell of a man who could never be his best (be his best)
If I didn't have you, I'd never see the sun (see the sun)
You taught me how to be someone
Yeah


[Chorus: Sergio Calderon & Drew Ramos, and All]
All my life
You stood by me
When no one else was ever behind me
All these lights
They can't blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me

All my life
You stood by me
When no one else was ever behind me
All these lights
They can't blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me

All my life
You stood by me
When no one else was ever behind me
All these lights
They can't blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down
**
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down

Alternate parts

[March 2019 Kidtopia Version - Michael Conor]
Everybody want a piece of this but they ain't work long nights, no sleep for this
I got a whole family I wanna feed with this, I had to pass mix tapes on the street for this
With so many doors shut on repeat for this, I'm a dog, but I'm comin' off the leash for this
I'm the man in my city, like Bruce Wayne, I'm runnin' like Usain
Your veins can't compete for this
And y'all don't know what to expect, but judging by the way that I'm actually rappin', as soon as you listen to it
You be thinking it's hard to believe that it's actually happening
I am attacking it like it's a dragon and I got the javelin, I am accurate
They just like, "Man, this kid is immaculate"
Understand that none of this happened on accident


[Universal CityWalk Version - Michael Conor]
It's time to face it
Came a long way but I'm not complacent
Giving everything I got
Everybody say stop
Then you start to run out of patience
Gotta make sure no time is wasted
I don't have to be mad 'cause this life's amazing
Now I get to rap in front of legends man
How's that for the confirmation?
People gotta understand this is more to me than just fame though
I hear chit-chat, talking this and that
But it ain't none of that unless I say so
Never slowing it down, that line is all I can see
Overlooked the kid
But now there’s all eyes on me
