"You Bring Me Down" as written by and Steven Ansell Laura Carter....
i dunno why
i can't function
in this dead end
impossible
i don't know why
it's not that i,
that i don't try,
it's not easy.

i dunno why
i can't function
in this dead end
impossible
i don't know why
it's not that i,
that i don't try,
it's not easy.

bury your head, bare your heart,
but i can't i can't i can't i can't.
bury your head, bare your heart,
but i can't i can't i can't i can't.

nothing can't stop this creeping fear.
i can't i can't i can't i can't
nothing can't stop this creeping fear.
i can't i can't i can't
i'm leaving.

bury your head, bare your heart,
but i can't i can't i can't i can't.
bury your head, bare your heart,
but i can't i can't i can't i can't.

nothing can't stop this creeping fear.
can't i can't i can't i can't
nothing can't stop this creeping fear.
can't i can't i can't
i'm leaving.

i'm leaving, i'm leaving, i'm leaving, i'm leaving, i'm leaving, i'm leaving
i'm leaving, i'm leaving


bury your head, bare your heart,
but i can't i can't i can't i can't.
bury your head, bare your heart,
but i can't i can't i can't i can't.


nothing can't stop this creeping fear.
can't i can't i can't i can't
nothing can't stop this creeping fear.
i can't i can't i can't
i'm leaving.

i'm leaving, i'm leaving, i'm leaving, i'm leaving, i'm leaving, i'm leaving
i'm leaving, i'm leaving

    General CommentI think it could also about struggling with a relationship, because you're not capable of showing how you feel and stop worrying. Which in turn makes you feel frustrated and stuck in a dead end, it doesn't get you anywhere, so you get out of the relationship.

    General CommentI was stcuk in a crap job feeling dead end in life and this song was it! personal feeling is to always be true and clear in head and heart but impossible sometime where other people and situation make it all about things that dont matter!

    General Commentfor me its about being completely bored and frustrated with the way your life is turning out, but feeling like its out of your control to change it because of someone else...
