"Down" as written by Amel Larrieux and Laru Larrieux....
Down
Where I'm going is down
'Cause you dance me around
Make me too dizzy to see

Down
Boy did you make me down
There's a permanent frown
Where my smile used to be

Pride has kept me from crawling
But sorrow is constantly calling
'Cause you are the man who's not falling for me

Down
I'm the fool of the town
Someone send in the clowns
That song's about me

Carelessly I let you saunter in
All of the chambers of my heart
Disguised as a gentleman

Heartlessly, and much to my chagrin
You quickened your step
As you left
And that's where my soliloquy begins

Down
Isn't it profound
You're the wolf on the bound
I'm a helpless sheep

Carelessly I let you saunter in
And out of the chambers of my heart
Disguised as a gentleman

Heartlessly, and much to my chagrin
You quickened your step
As you left
And that's where my soliloquy begins

Down
My heart makes not a sound
It's somewhere on the ground
Breaking

    General CommentI think it's about a love that was unreturned. She fell for this man, who turned out to be a 'wolf on the bound' and he ended up leaving and breaking her heart. Sometimes, I think there is nothing you can do about situations like that.. you can't help it if the other person does not love you like you love them... and I think she realizes this in her song... he came around, turned her life upside down, and then left.... without warning, without giving her any kind of time to accept it... now she's left alone with nothing but time to agonize and watch her heart breaking on the ground..

    General CommentThis song always strikes me as a perfect candidate for the next James Bond flick.

    With this in the background, I can see some chick driving fast in a white convertable through the Italian Alps wearing sunglasses and a kerchief on her head. Except, she's the heartbreaker. The irony...
