"Don't Let Me Down" as written by Peter John Vettese and James Hillier Blount....
Where do you go?
When you're alone and in your head
Why do they know you?
Is your story painted in red?
What do you see?
What do you dream when you're awake?
What have they seen of you?
Are you afraid of what's been said?

And if time stood still
If you won't be your witness
No one ever will

I hear a voice that's in my head
Don't let me down
'Cause I can't hold the future in my head
So many things I should have said
Don't let me down
'Cause I would be a lucky girl if time stood on it's head
Don't let me down

Don't let me down
Don't let them see
These shadows fallen over me
Where do you go?
When you're awake and in your head?
Why do they know you?
Is your story painted in red?

And if time stood still
If I can't be my teacher
No one ever will

I hear a voice that's in my head
Don't let me down
'Cause I can't hold the future in my head
So many things I should have said
That let me let me down

And I can't choose the road ahead
Close my eyes and hold my breath
Hope my little debt won't let me down
And I can't choose the road ahead
And close my eyes and hold my breath
Hope my little death won't let me down

And if time stood still
If I can't be my teacher
No one ever will

I hear a voice that's in my head
Don't let me down
'Cause I can't hold the future in my head
So many things I should have said
That let me let me down

I hear a voice that's in my head
Don't let me down
'Cause I can't hold the future in my head
So many things I should have said
That let me let me down

'Cause I would be a lucky girl if time stood on it's head
Don't let me down

    General CommentFirst of all, what a tune! - It got me through my final exams in college. Idina totally captures the excess pressure an ambitious person can heap on themselves and the doubt and worry that can accompany it.
    I wonder though, is it "doubt" "death" "dance" or something else in the bridge... "I can't choose the road ahead, Close my eyes and hold my breath
    And hope my little DOUBT won't let me down" I've seen all 3 used in different places but I always sing Dance but doubt makes more sense!!??
