"I'm Going Down " as written by and Bruce Springsteen....
We sit in the car outside your house
I can feel the heat coming 'round
I go to put my arm around you
And you give me a look like I'm way out of bounds
Well you let out one of your bored sighs
Well lately when I look into your eyes
I'm goin' down

We get dressed up and we go out baby for the night
We come home early burning burning in some fire fight
I'm sick and tired of you setting me up
Setting me up just to knock-a knock-a knock-a me down

I pull you close but when we kiss I can feel a doubt
I remember back when we started
My kisses used to turn you inside out
I used to drive you to work in the morning
Friday night I'd drive you all around
You used to love to drive me wild
But lately girl you get your kicks from just driving me down

    My InterpretationThis is a reflection that is occurring near the end of a relationship. The male is reflecting on the way the girl used to be much more into him when they started dating. He can tell that she is getting bored of him, but he still wants things to work. They are holding back things that should be said; and they suddenly let it out; and they get in a huge fight. When they try to make up; it just isn't the same. They aren't meant to be. She is losing interest; but he is trying his best to look at all the times they were happy; so he could bring them back. He is trying to deny the fact that she wants to leave.
