"Breakin' Down" as written by and David Michael Sabo....
What was it you once said
That there would be things in life that couldn't be
Not for a second did I believe you
Not for a minute did I believe that

Within your need you lie alone
This empty space you call your home

If you just let me in
I wouldn't let you break down
I'm breakin' down

As if you thought the rain could wash away the day
And could heal you
Not for a second did I believe it
Not for a minute did I believe that

Within your need you lie alone
This empty space you call your home

What was it you once said
That there would be things in life that couldn't be
Not for a second did I believe you
Not for a minute did I believe that

    General CommentLooking at the lyrics again, I'm getting the feeling that this song is about how the narrator loves another and wants to be with them but the person has a "reason" why they can't be together. Then the chorus is all how the narrator is pleading to show them how they won't let them down in the end.

    General CommentCan you say: SAPPY?

    The one and only skid Row song I don't like.
    What's so great about it? Bach sounds like shit (well, not shit, that's not possible, but about as un-metal as you can get) and as for the lyrics...

    It's so sweet, and meaningful.
