Tear It Down

This song is by Elkie Brooks and appears on the album Inspiration (1989).

Tear it down
Tear down and build it up (build it up, build it up)

I won't take this lying down
I won't buy this misery
I won't take these chains on my soul
I will be free

This ghost of love is haunting me
To taste the blood of victory
But in the end I'm gonna win
I can see right through the walls
Of this prison that I'm in

I'm gonna tear it down (tear it down)
And build among the ruins of my heart
I'm gonna tear it down (and build it up)
And build it up solid from the start
Tear down and build it up (build it up, build it up)

Can't take this heat no more
Can't live this slavery
I won't beg for mercy of love
For my liberty

I'll find and fight to reach the light
No ghost of love haunts me tonight
And in the end I'm gonna win
'Cause I'm breaking through the walls
Of this prison that I'm in

I'm gonna tear it down (tear it down)
And build among the ruins of my heart
I'm gonna tear it down (and build it up)
And build it up solid from the start
Tear down and build it up (build it up, build it up)

This past of love is haunting me
Tear it down
Tear it down

I'm gonna tear it down (tear it down)
And build among the ruins of my heart
I'm gonna tear it down (and build it up)
Build it up solid from the start

I'm gonna tear it down (tear it down)
And build among the ruins of my heart
I'm gonna tear it down (and build it up)
Build it up solid from the start

Tear it, tear, tear it, tear it down
(Tear it down)
Build among the ruins of my heart
Oh, tear it down (and build it up)
Build it up solid from the start
Tear it down
