Yoke Lore - Hold Me Down Lyrics



I'll take you in long strides, I'll teach you my night rhymes
Deny me just three times, I won't forget the mess or your red face
Just help me to speak slow, grip down my hips when I feel low
My dirt black fathers, I'll find a different way
My dirt black fathers, none of them were saved

But I still yell at the moon
I'm close to making it a song
I'm close to learning where I went wrong
I'm close to learning where I go wrong

Hold me down
Hold me down

I waited for you to see, I wanted for there to be bones in my wood floor
Things unsaid and feelings I'd died for
Just help to speak slow, grip down my hips when I feel low
My dirt black fathers, I'll find a different way
My dirt black fathers, I'll teach them how to pray

But I still yell at the moon
I'm close to making it a song
I'm close to learning where I went wrong
I'm close to learning where I go wrong

Hold me down
Hold me down

    Adrian! I didn’t know you were a rollerblader! Makes me like you even more than I already did. Was awesome seeing you live in SLC.

  2. Abdul Rashid Hadji Salic

    I found this because of After Soundtrack. And his songs are damn so addictive. And yes, his song deserves more views.

    I saw him perform live with Aquilo. They are both awesome live and in video. Yoke Lore is funny and a great performer. His banjo wasn't tuned properly and it took about 3 tries to get it right but each time he would say something like "that wasn't quite right". Awesome performance.

  18. Peggy Potts

    Not to sound cougarish but that kid is gorgeous!

  19. Sue Ellen Grove

    You guys were awesome in DC on Thursday! I had heard this tune when it popped up on a Spotify playlist and then a YouTube playlist so it was familiar when you played it. The thing that made it stick for me was when you introduced it and told us how you are a yogi and need the people you love to keep you grounded and that's why you wrote it. It resonated with me. Very cool!

    Yoke te saludo desde Lima, de verdad te felicito por tener un estilo propio.

  25. Gallifreyian

    I'll take you in long strides, I'll teach you my night rhymes
    Deny me just three times, I won't forget the mess or your red face
    Just help me to speak slow, grip down my hips when I feel low
    My dirt black fathers, I'll find a different way
    My dirt black fathers, none of them were saved

    But I still yell at the moon
    I'm close to making it a song
    I'm close to learning where I went wrong
    I'm close to learning where I go wrong

    Hold me down
    Hold me down

    I waited for you to see, I wanted for there to be bones in my wood floor
    Things unsaid and feelings I'd died for
    Just help to speak slow, grip down my hips when I feel low
    My dirt black fathers, I'll find a different way
    My dirt black fathers, I'll teach them how to pray

    But I still yell at the moon
    I'm close to making it a song
    I'm close to learning where I went wrong
    I'm close to learning where I go wrong

    Hold me down
    Hold me down

    Saw YL preform at Amoeba SF, I must say I would never check out YL from this video. This bleached blonde tip cutie excuse my wording - bullshit. It's not appealing at all. With inlines or not. BUT! seeing him live is a complete different story. The unwashed, unbleached, sweaty and sincere live version of him was beautiful. And i dont even listen to this kind of music or swing that way.

  27. Christopher Langshaw

    You guys did awesome yesterday at Fort York! Keep it up.

  28. Stricker

    até aqui nois tá

  29. Nicole Zedler

    can someone tell me what this song is about? or at least how yall interpret it?

    Undiscovered Treasures

    I don't understand it fully, but my interpretation is that this song is about a man learning to love with the help of his partner. The lyrics are kind of cryptic so I can't say for sure but it's part of the beauty imo

  30. Jessica Shanel

    You rock Adrian

  31. Pedro Trindade

    What a song...

  32. Ana S.

    This song is so amazing <3

  33. Jonatan Łyczek

    The all songs I heard are great, but videos for it doesn't contain feelings and emotions which I could feel while listening to them.
    This one is too much focused on one theme, and the theme doesnt compare to the song. The song is more colorfull and the video should be more miscellaneous.
    Although I'm happy about that you put work on it. I will just wait to see how you gain skill and became more professional and perfectional.
    Keep working, work harder and I wish you the best.
    Good luck bro

    Isadora Ribeiro

    I felt the same, this is so great.....

    Lorelei L

    Please don't become more "professional and perfectional" - not if it means you stop creating things like this.
    It's simple, and wonderful. Studium < Punctum :)

    Adrian Galvin

    messy for lyfe

  34. Maryana Redz

  35. LabH90 1990

  39. Leigh Woodhams

    I've been listening to this song for months and it's so wonderful. Also, your face is lovely to look at.

    Mike Ortiz

    Leigh Woodhams It genuinely makes me sad that I can’t walk in to work tomorrow and say, Hey, have you listened to Hold Me Down by Yoke Lore?
