Pick Me Up

from by Joy Ike


Feel like a Mac truck done run me down
Didn’t wait or warn, it just ran me down
You know I looked both ways to clear my path
Lookin’ side to side to see just where I’m at

Feel like there’s something holdin’ me down
Try to swim through water, it tryin’ to make me drown
You know I looked back to see the shore before I jumped in
So I don’t know why I’m fighting just to find it

Pick me up and I’ll be the one to do the same for you
Work it out. C’mon and work it out instead of runnin’ like you do

If I can trust you to hold me high
Above the water and the road, above the chaos that we know
I know you would trust me too
Cause if you pick me up I’ll do the same for you

You run, I hide. You always leave my side
I don’t wanna be that way with you
I push, you pull. Dig and drop me in a hole
I don’t wanna love that way with you
