"Bring Me Down" as written by Zackery D. Toms, Dominic Butler and Mark Yardley....
Sweet like a kiss, sharp like a razor blade
I find you when I'm close to the bottom
You can't appreciate the time it takes
To kick a love I always knew was kinda wrong
And as I'm putting out the flame
Somebody brings up your name

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Baby, baby, baby bring me down
I want to be right where you are
Baby, baby, baby bring me down
You can look me in the eye and break my heart
Break my heart

Six am, unruffled pillow
Laughs out loud at my trusting heart
It's like I didn't see the penny
I missed the fountain by a couple yards
If you would only stay gone
Maybe I could move on

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Baby, baby, baby bring me down
I want to be right where you are
Baby, baby, baby bring me down
You can look me in the eye and break my heart

Oh, baby, baby, baby bring me down
I want to be right where you are
Baby, baby, baby bring me down
You can look me in the eye and break my heart

Oh, baby, baby, baby bring me down
I want to be right where you are
Baby, baby, baby bring me down
You can look me in the eye and break my heart
Break my heart

Bring me down

    General CommentI never really listened to the lyrics of this song until recently. Funny how when you are going through something similiar, the words stick out to you moreso than before.

    My take on the song is that she is in love with him but he is only using her/playing her. He knows that no matter how many times he hurts her, she loves him, therefore she will always be there when it's convienent for him. She knows it's wrong to love him and be with him but she just wants him so bad that she feels it's not wrong enough for her to leave. You get me?? It's like, you know that eating a whole bad of dorittos or a whole gallon of ben & jerrys is bad for you and the scale will probably read 5 pounds more in the morning, but you eat it anyway because you just want them/it so bad. It's almost like you'd rather have the little bit of him that he's willing to give you and a side of hurt to go than nothing at all.

    Love it!

    General CommentThe unruffled pillow laughing at her trusting heart sounds like he's not sleeping in her bed, which is why "his" pillow is unruffled. Him being gone mocks her trusting him not to leave.

    General CommentI love this song!...It is like I hate to love you.I mean to love someone so much no matter what he/she did to you it doesn't matter, and when you try not to love them but you cannot help it.

    General CommentI was wondering if someone could tell me their oppinion of what the song means to them. I have a feeling I know but I can't really make up my mind.

    I also have a question all you guys that have seen the video (awesome vid) I was wondering if they knew why there are so many of her like in the first part of the vid when she is in the bathroom and she is looking in the mirrow and than another figure of her self shows up by the door. Same thing in the bed room scene, and when she is leaving.

    Also do you think at the end of the vid when she is whipeing off the "I'm Sorry" is that from the guy the is singing about?

    General CommentIt's about a love that brings you down instead of raises you up. She is struggling with getting away from it, but by letting herself be brought down her heart will be broken. Getting over love, real love is hard. Even though she knows it's wrong she lets herself get hurt by it.

    General Comment'Six AM unruffled pillow
    Laughs out loud at my trusting heart'
    'If you would only stay gone
    Maybe I could move on'

    Even though she wants to move on, he always comes back when he needs her and she lets him because she trusts him. Like a pillow, she's there for conveiniance ... something that's always lying around but not always used. Of coarse she goes along with it, but everyone else knows it's a mistake, 'laughs out loud at my trusting heart'.

    General CommentMusicQueen :::I think the song is about finding another part of yourself when you go through hard times. {thats why in the vid there are so many of her} & the part where she says "you don't appreciate......" she's saying theres this part of her that says pick up and move on, that part being her tough side. but her emotional side is saying you don't get it my heart hurts.
    But then again also in the secong half she is speaking to that someone who broke her heart

    ^^just my opinion^^

    General CommentIts the love in where the other person the guy breaks your heart. Bt us girls, always go back to them because we care for them to much. like we will be there for them anytime anywhere. Love is truly blind.
