Ingrid Michaelson – Build It Up Lyrics

Posted by

Everything I ever knew came from you
Everything I wanna be, that’s in me
That comes from me
Mmm
Mmm

Open up your fist and let me out
I was made to run around
And let me feel the air beneath my feet
Let me go

And I know not everybody gets a new life
And I know not everybody gets to start over again
But I do know what I’m doing with my new life
I’ll build it up, break it down, build it up
Build it up, break it down
Build it up, break it down

You can fly away too, that’s on you
But don’t tell me what I cannot do
I can tie on my shoes and put on my coat
I’m living a history, the one that I wrote

And I know not everybody gets a new life
And I know not everybody gets to start over again
But I do know what I’m doing with my new life
I’ll build it up, break it down, build it up
Build it up, break it down, build it up

And everything I ever knew
Everything I ever knew

And I know not everybody gets to start over again (Everything I ever knew)
But I do know what I’m doing with my new life (Everything I ever knew)
Build it up, break it down, build it up (Ooh, everything I ever knew came from you)
Burn it up, break it down, build it up

You can fly away too, that’s on you
