Elley Duhé is quickly making her mark on dance music – after the popular “Happy Now” with Zedd, she appears again on Gryffin’s new song “Tie Me Down,” out now via Geffen Records. As for Gryffin, “Tie Me Down” follows a string of strong releases like “Winnebago” with Quinn XCII and Daniel Wilson, and “Just For A Moment” with Iselin.


The summer smash, which was written by Sarah Aarons (Zedd’s “Middle” and “Stay”) and produced by Gryffin, is the latest single from Gryffin’s upcoming full-length debut album, which will be released by Darkroom/Geffen Records later this year. It’s a catchy and flirty song that speaks to the quickness of lust and attraction in this world that often times goes far too fast for our own good.

Listen to “Tie Me Down” below.

Gryffin – Tie Me Down [Lyrics]

[Verse 1]
Don’t lie
I know you’ve been thinking it
And two times, you let it slip from your lips
You got too much pride to make any promises
Thinking that we got time
And you wanna keep it in

[Pre-Chorus]
I want you out in the pouring rain
I want you down on your knees
Praying to God that I’ll feel the same
I’m right here baby so please

[Chorus]
Hold me up, tie me down
Cause I never wana leave your side
Swear to never let you down
And it’s been eatin’ me alive
You can take me home
You can never let me go
Hold me up, hold me up
And tie me, tie me
Down, down (down)
And tie me, tie me
Down, down
And tie me, tie me
Down, down (down)
And tie me, tie me
Down, down

[Verse 2]
Nine lives until you fall at my feet
Don’t hide, you’re wasting your energy
You’re not shy, so baby it’s useless
So don’t try, cause you’ll end up losing it

[Pre-Chorus]
I want you out in the pouring rain
I want you down on your knees
Praying to God that I’ll feel the same
I’m right here baby so please

[Chorus]
Hold me up, tie me down
Cause I never wana leave your side
Swear to never let you down
And it’s been eatin’ me alive
You can take me home
You can never let me go
Hold me up, hold me up
And tie me, tie me
Down, down (down)
And tie me, tie me
Down, down
And tie me, tie me
Down, down (down)
And tie me, tie me
Down, down

[Bridge]
So wrap your arms around my chest
And I’ll put my hands around your neck
Cause nobody waste this waiting game
You push and you pull, but you should stay
Stay

[Chorus]
Hold me up, tie me down
Cause I never wana leave your side
Swear to never let you down
And it’s been eatin’ me alive
You can take me home
You can never let me go
Hold me up, hold me up
And tie me, tie me
Down, down (down)
And tie me, tie me
Down, down
And tie me, tie me
Down, down (down)
And tie me, tie me
Down, down
