Let Down

And the tears fall like rain,
Down my face again,
Oh the words you wouldn't say,
And the games you played
with my young foolish heart,
Oh I should have known this from the start,

Oh the winter and spring,
Going hand in hand,
Just like my love and pain,
How the thought of you
cuts deep within the vein,
Oh this brand new skin stretched across scarred terrain,

I don't wanna be let down,
I don't wanna live my life again,
Don't wanna be led down the same old road,
I don't wanna be let down,
I don't wanna live my lies again,
Don't wanna be led down the same old road,

All those years down the drain,
Love was not enough when you want everything,
What I gave to you and now the end will start,
Oh I should have listened to my heart,

Cause I don't wanna be let down,
I don't wanna live my life again,
Don't wanna be led down the same old road,
So I don't wanna be let down,
I don't wanna live my lies again,
Don't wanna be led down the same old road,

I don't wanna be let down,
I don't wanna live my life again,
Don't wanna be led down the same old road,
So I don't wanna be let down,
I don't wanna live my lies again,
Don't wanna be led down the same old road,

    General CommentWow, this song gets sappy after a few listen but the first listen was emotional for me. Maybe I'm just emotionally retarded.. anyway.. This song is just basically not wanting anything in life that will let you down and how you want to break the cycle. In this one I think it's a relationship with Chester's wife.

    General CommentI think this song definately shows the variety Chester can perform, vocally, but I like him more on songs like One Step Closer and Hit the Floor. What is this song from, anyway? Isn't Chester releasing his own album? And when the hell is that coming out?!

    General CommentSacred? scared? NO IT'S SCARRED. I though it was dark at first, but then I realized it's scarred.
