"Put Me Down" as written by Dolores Mary O'riordan and Noel Hogan....
Let me take you by the hand
Away from here,
To another land.
Oh, this land in which we live

Where people love and are meant to forgive.
And you always put me wrong,
'Cause you're always putting me down.
I can't take this anymore,

I decided to leave,
Walked out through the door.
Oh, and why do you think I go?
Because you know it can never be so.

And you always put me wrong,
'Cause you're always putting me down.
So let me take you by the hand
Away from here,

To another land.
Oh, this land in which we live
Where people love and are meant to forgive.
And you always put me wrong,

'Cause you're always putting me down.

    General CommentSimply incredible song! Haunting, breathy vocals just sends a chill up your spine. I think it's about two people in love, but the guy doesn't quite treat her right. She keeps trying to forgive him for the way he treats her, and they both still love each other, but they both know it could never work because they don't get along.

    My InterpretationI think that the first section of this song really sets up the whole meaning,about how she wants to take him to another land where people love and are meant to forgive because she wishes she couldn't let him hurt her because he's always putting her down and she's sick of it and hopes she could forgive him in that land but she left because he never would stop and she gave up on him.This is a really pretty song and Dolores voice is nice as always.

    General CommentAbsolutely fantastic song - the wordless vocals are just stunning - right up there with "Dreams." It's much sadder than "Dreams," but that's not a bad thing. It's an excellent end for the album. In fact, all the albums other than "Wake up and smell the coffee" end with beautiful, sad songs. Not that I mind "Africa," but it doesn't follow the trend of being sad.

    General CommentAh these lyrics are wrong! It's "And you always prove me wrong" not "prove me wrong".
    Favorite song by them, it's breathtaking.
