"Let You Down" as written by Adam Wade Gontier, Neil Sanderson, Brad Walst, Gavin Brown and Matt Walst....
Trust me
There's no need to fear
Everyone's here
Waiting for you to finally be one of us

Calm down
You may be full of fear
But you'll be safe here
When you finally trust me
Finally believe in me

I will let you down
I'll let you down I'll
When you finally trust me
Finally believe in me

Trust me
I'll be there when you need me
You'll be safe here
And when you finally trust me
Finally believe in me

I will let you down
I'll let you down I'll
When you finally trust me
Finally believe in me

Never want to come down

    General CommentI think its about people's expectations being too high. He knows that he will never match up to what he is expected to be. And the 'When you finally trust me I will let you down' bit, is about when he does finally get the recognition and respect of them, that he'll still let them down, because he still isn't good enough. The 'waiting for you' bit is basically talking about how they are pressuring him to be perfect, just like their expectations.

    Just my meaning--

    General CommentTo me this song is one of my personal favs.... in my opinion I think of it like there's a person who is unsecure and unsure of themselves and they don't know who to trust and what to believe from anyone really because they are soo lost within themselves. They are completey unaware and gullible and basically just don't fit in anywhere with life... So one day this person meets someone who really they don't know but is tricked into thinking that they can be trusted and that if this person just trusts them that they can finally fit into a place where they will feel safe and secure:

    "Trust me
    There’s no need to fear
    Everyone’s here
    Waiting for you to finally be one of us"

    The person is being told to "Come down" meaning don't be soo uptight and basically let down your guard....

    "Never want to come down" is thought of as They've been soo lost for so long, wanting to have someone to trust but because they're full of fear and not knowing how to without stepping a bit out of their comfort zone. So finally when the person is thinking "Okay I can trust you" this other person who obviously has planned to trick them, follows through unfortuately...

    This song relates to me very much to me and my life... wanting to fit in yet not knowing whom to trust....

    General CommentThsi song confuses me a bit. It says
    "I will let you down
    I’ll let you down, I’ll
    When do you finally trust me
    Finally believe in me"

    But its saying trust me ill be there when you need me in the verses. So. Confusing. Still a legend song tho

    General CommentI was at their concert last summer and he said "this song's for anyone out there that's ever been fucked over by a bitch!" I think the song is from the "bitch's" perspective. Basically sayin how she kinda ecourages a guy to trust her and then she lets him down once she's gained his trust. Awesome guitar halfway through!

    General CommentMy interpretation of this song might be a bit off, but it's what it means to me;

    Somehow, I'm thinking of a drug addiction when I listen to this. About a kid with a lot going on, and decides [and is tempted] to turn to drugs for closure.
