Don't Bring Me Down
by Sia

Album: Colour the Small One (2004)

  • In the video The making of Colour the Small One, Sia explains: "I hadn't done drugs for a period of time before writing that song. It was about having a really horrible comedown off ecstasy, and the concept of being abandoned before you get to sleep - being the last one high when everyone else has gone to bed."
