"Break Me Down" as written by Mark Tremonti and Myles Kennedy....
It's too late the time has come
I've kept this inside me for way too long
Silence will leave me cold
Lost on a highway that never takes me home

I want to step aside
I want to give it up
Before I lose it all
It's tearing me inside
The way you break me down

Oh there will come a time
When I will come undone
And you will let me fall
I'll leave it all behind
Before you break me down

The weight of a thousand lies
Promises broken haunt me all the time
You say that you're sure to change
But that black heart reveals that
You'll always stay the same

I want to step aside
I want to give it up
Before I lose it all
It's tearing me inside
The way you break me down

I realize
Forgiveness
Is calling
It's calling

I've denied
The reason
I'm falling
I'm falling

So let go

I want to step aside
I want to give it up
Before I lose it all
It's tearing me inside
The way you break me down

    General CommentIt sounds like the singer is finally telling someone that he wants out of a bad relationship. After the chorus is repeated for the first time, it sounds like the singer realizes the other person has been dragging him down, but he should just forgive the person and move on with his life without him/her.
