Knock You Down
Featuring Kanye West and NEYO

Ohh… this ain’t supposed to happen to me…

Keep rockin, and keep knockin
Whether you Louie Vuitton up or Reebokin
You see the hate, that they’re servin on a platter
So what we gon’ have - desert or disaster?

[Keri Hilson]
I never thought I’d… be in love like this
When I look at you my mind goes on a trip
And you came in… and knocked me on my face
Feels like in I’m a race
But I already won first place

I never thought I’d… fall for you as hard as I did
(As hard as I did, yeah)
You got me thinkin about our house and kids (yeah)
Every moment I look at you and smile
Cause boy you came around and you knocked me down… knocked me down

[Chorus]
Sometimes love comes around
(Love comes around)
And it knocks you down
Just get back up
When it knocks you down
(Knocks you down)
Sometimes love comes around
(Love comes around)
And it knocks you down
Just get back up
When it knocks you down
(Knocks you down)

I would keep my sane (ooh)
Ya’ll gon hate
I think I’m gonna kick it with my girl today (kick it with my girl today)
I used to be commander and chief
Of my pimp ship flyin high (flyin high)
Til I met this pretty little missile, that shot me out the sky (oh shot me out the sky)

(Hey) Until I crash it, I don’t know how it happened
But I know it feels so damn good
Said if I could back, and make it happen faster
Don’t you know I would baby if I could
Miss independent (ohh, to the fullest), no never too much
She shot the bullet that ended that life
Steady pimpin me after tonight

Just get back up
When it knocks you down
(Knocks you down)

So we can finally fly off into NASA
You was always the cheerleader of my dreams to
Seem to only date the head of football teams
And I was the class clown that, always kept you laughin
We, were never meant to be baby we just happen
So please, don’t mess up the trick… hey young world I’m the new slick rick
They say I move too quick, but we cannot let the moment pass us
Let the hourglass pass right into ashes
Let the wind blow the ash right before my glasses
So I wrote this love letter right before my classes
I could’ve got his ass, someone that’s only average
For advice
OMG, you listen to that bitch?
Whoa it’s me
Baby this is tragic
Cause we had it, we was magic

I was flyin, now I’m crashin
This is bad, real bad, Michael Jackson
Now I’m mad, real mad, Joe Jackson
You should leave your boyfriend now, Ima ask him

[Keri Hilson]
So I gotta put the good with the bad, happy and the sad
So I’ll bring a better future than I had in the past
Oh Cause, I don’t wanna make the same mistakes I did
I don’t wanna fall on my face again
Whoa, whoa
I’ll admit it, I was scared to act to loves call
Whoa, whoa
And if it hits better make it worth the full

(When it comes around)

[Chorus]
Sometimes love comes around
(Love comes around)
And it knocks you down
Just get back up
When it knocks you down
(Knocks you down)
Sometimes love comes around
(Love comes around)
And it knocks you down
Just get back up
When it knocks you down
(Knocks you down)
Won’t see it coming when it happens
But when it happens you’re gonna feel it, let me tell you now
You see when love knocks you down
Won’t see it coming when it happens
But when it happens you’re gonna feel it, let me tell you now
You see when love knocks you down
