"Bring Me Down" as written by Lenka Kripac and Stuart Brawley....
I won't let this burden bring me down.

So here we are again
Starin' at the end
Of what we made and who we are.
Never knowin' when
One of us will break apart
And walk the other way, love.
I don't know what to say, love.
I don't know how to stay
When you won't let me be
The person that I am.

The writings on the wall.
There?s nothin' to say anymore.
So ill leave before I fall apart
Right back into your arms.
The writings on the wall.
You gave nothin' back at all.
But I want something better.
I won't let this burden bring me down.

What are we to do?
What are we to say to one another
Now were through?
Thanks for bein' you.
Thanks for bein' all things
I had to say goodbye to.
I'm over bein' lied to.
I'm over bein' pushed into the person
That you want me to become.

The writings on the wall.
There?s nothin' to say anymore.
So ill leave before I fall apart
Right back into your arms.
The writings on the wall.
You gave nothin' back at all.
But I want something better.
I won't let this burden bring me down.

Oh where did it go wrong?
We had it for so long.
But now there's no point in turning back
Let's face the fact

The writings on the wall.
There?s nothin' to say anymore.
So ill leave before I fall apart
Right back into your arms.
The writings on the wall.
You gave nothin' back at all.
But I want something better.
I won't let this burden bring me down.

I won't let this burden bring me [Repeat: x2]
I won't let this burden bring me down.

    General CommentI love this song.
    I think the lyrics are pretty obvious to the meaning of the song.

    basically.
    a girl who feels she needs to be the first to leave a relationship because she can't deal with his lies anymore. and she wants to be stronger "I'll leave before I fall apart back into your arms." does she feel she relies on him too much? and also, she seems to not have any regrets about leaving him but she does think about it, calling it a burden.. Perhaps her guilt is the burden? and she's finally realised she can be strong and won't let it get to her "won't let this burden bring me down"
