"I'm Goin' Down" as written by and Norman Jesse Whitfield....
Time on my hands
Since you been away boy
I ain't got no plans
No no no no
And the sound of the rain
Against my windowpane
Is slowly, is slowly drivin' me insane, boy

I'm goin' down
I'm goin' down
Cause you ain't around baby
My whole world's upside down

Sleep don't come easy
Boy please believe me
Since you been gone
Everything's goin' wrong
Why'd you have to say goodbye
Look what you've done to me
I can't stop these tears from fallin' from my eyes
Ooh baby

I'm goin' down
I'm goin' down
Cause you ain't around baby
My whole world's upside down

Oooh baby love
goin' down, goin' down
Mmm ooh I'm goin' down
Ooh I, I

I'm goin' down
I'm goin' down
Cause you ain't around baby
My whole world's upside down

Ooh, goin' down
Goin' down
Oh, I don't know what to do
If I ever lose you
I'll be goin' down
I said I'll be goin' down
Oh, please forgive me baby
I'm so sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry
What did I do wrong?
I said, what did I do wrong?
Please forgive me baby
And come on home
Goin' down, goin' down, goin' down

    General CommentThis is a very emotional song. It is about her missing her ex or lover so much that its all she thinks about. She cant eat or sleep, and she cries all the time. Her life is going down!

    General Comment...actually Mary J. Blige covered this song. This song was written and originally performed by a kickass band called Rose Royce, I personally like the original better, and think it's way worth listening to.

    General Commentawwwwwh i love this song. the first time i eva heard it was like, five years ago or something. It was sung by the stars of a show called Sister Sister and i loved it but never knew who actually sung it, or if it was even a real song. then they sang it on PCD The Search For the Next Doll. and i was like :O lol. its such a beautiful song. Lol so now that my life story is out of the way, the meaning... I think it's just about a break up where the girl is still in love with him. I think the line: 'look what you've done to me' is so powerful. awesome song
