"Let You Down" as written by and Matthew Emerson Brown....
I let you down
Let me pick you up
I let you down
Let me climb up you to the top
So I can see the view from up there
Tangled in your hair
I let you down

I have no lid upon my head
But if I did
You could look inside and see
What's on my mind

You could look inside and see
What's on my mind
I let you down, oh, forgive me
You give me love

Let me walk with you
Maybe I could say
Maybe talk with you, open up
And let me through

Don't walk away
Don't walk away

I have no lid upon my head
But if I did
You could look inside and see
What's on my mind

You could look inside and see
What's on my mind
I let you down
How could I be such a fool like me

I let you down
Tail between my legs
I'm a puppy for your love
I'm a puppy for your love

I have no lid upon my head
But if I did
You could look inside and see
What's on my mind,

Oh it's you
I let you down

I'm a puppy for your love
I'm a puppy for your love

Forgive me
Forgive me
Forgive me
I let you down

    that lyric has to be one of the most awesome lyrics i have ever heard. just the visual picture of someone opening up your head and seeing your thoughts is so deep and i am in awe that someone could ever think that up....dave is such a genius

    General CommentI want to be all of your life. I want to 'let you down', and 'pick you up'... You are all thats on my mind, I wish you could see it for yourself. 'i have no lid, but if i did...'

    General CommentHe obviously hurt someone so badly that he has to plea for forgiveness. He's also humbling himself while doing so..'Tail between my legs'. I guess he's admitting that we all do stupid things in life but..'If you could look inside and see what's on my mind,' you'll be able to read my heart.
