"Whyyawannabringmedown" as written by Samuel J Watters, Louis Biancaniello and Dameon / Aranda....
This situation, if it gets any deeper could be critical
I’m not your love monkey so be taking back all the lies you sold
What did you want me to be
It’s just too much now
So tell me so tell me so tell me one two three four

So what’s your evil attitude
When you got me spending my time pleasing you
Why must you keep me underground
Tell me tell me, why you wanna bring me down?
Is it too much to give a damn
When I’m giving you one hundred and ten
Don’t blink cause I won’t be around
Tell me tell me, why you wanna bring me down

Now your transmission is on the negative
You’re on a losing streak
This information is getting ordinary and you’re losing me
What’s with your hostility when the lie’s on me
Well you’re down to the last chance
So tell me so tell me
Uno dos tres cuatro

So what’s your evil attitude
When you got me spending my time pleasing you
Why must you keep me underground
Tell me tell me, why you wanna bring me down
Is it too much to give a damn
When I’m giving you one hundred and ten
Don’t blink cause I won’t be around
Tell me tell me, why you wanna bring me down

I don’t think you ever gave damn
In fact I know it
I can’t take it no more

Was it all just a waste of time
I don’t wanna spend my whole life thinking bout it
Baby this is where I draw the line, I think I’m done

So what’s your evil attitude
When you got me spending my time pleasing you
Why must you keep me underground
Tell me tell me, why you wanna bring me down
Is it too much to give a damn
When I’m giving you one hundred and ten
Don’t blink cause I won’t be around
Tell me tell me, why you wanna bring me down

    General CommentI think that this song is pretty self-explanatory. But then again I'm really bad at interpreting songs. All I wanted to say was that I think it's an absolutely awesome song.

    Anyway an awesome song with a great tune. I simply can't get this one out of my head! I really hope it's going to be a future single of hers!!

    General CommentThis was originally recorded by the band Aranda. It was written by former Color Me Badd member Sam Watters, his songwriting partner Louis Biancaniello, and Dameon Aranda, the lead guitarist/vocalist of Aranda. The trio also penned the title track on All I Ever Wanted.


    In publicity materials Clarkson described this as having a "kind of a punk-British Invasion sound."


    Clarkson said on her website that recording this song was the album's turning point. She explained: "I sang that song through I don't know how many times, just because I was having so much fun. It was new and it was fresh and it didn't sound like anything on the radio. And after that, I went to my manager and said that I wanted to make a really fun, feisty album, and just wanted to go all the way with every song."
