Lyrics: 

verse
I've a feeling
In my bones
That your concealing
Wish I had known
We were freewheeling
Down into hell
Growing ill feeling
Can't be unfelt

pre ch
But woman please don't make it (any?) harder

ch
Don't rock my world
Don't wanna be the one to drop
I can't deal with the after shocks
Don't rock my world
Can't take any more of your knocks
How can I just make this stop
Just don't rock my world
Don't rock my world

verse
I know I can't
Go back again
You can't take back
What caused my pain
A hidden steel trap
Under your lies
I saw the earth crack
Within your eyes

pre ch
But woman please don't make it (any?) harder

ch
Don't rock my world
Don't wanna be the one to drop
I can't deal with the after shocks
Don't rock my world
Can't take any more of your knocks
How can I just make this stop
Just don't rock my world
Don't rock my world



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

It's refreshing to see a song asking me to *not* rock someone's world. An interesting inversion of a familiar theme.

I can hear the rocky delivery given the energy and momentum of some of these lyrics - 'freewheeling down into hell' - more of that, please!

Very interesting vision for the prompt. Strong lines, a true rock lyric. Looking forward to hearing it.

Ooh will be interesting to hear the musical result! It sounds like it's written to be sung from a man's POV. Lyrically I like the concept of not having your world upset and the rhyming repetitions were clever.

I can totally picture this being a rock/nu-metal type of song. The chorus seems to naturally lend itself to lots of melodies and rhythms, I really want to hear this with a demo!

Very classic rock feel...a little 80s nostalgia for me too, though I can't place why. Excellent collaboration. I love the break out into he chorus. It had me bopping along. I also like how it plays with an overused trope. "Don't rock my world" is far more interesting the the opposite.
