  • This night is cold in the kingdom
    I can feel you fade away
    From the kitchen to the bathroom sink and
    Your steps keep me awake

    Don't cut me down, throw me out, leave me here to waste
    I once was a man with dignity and grace
    Now I'm slipping through the cracks of your cold embrace
    So please, please

    Could you find a way to let me down slowly?
    A little sympathy, I hope you can show me
    If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
    If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly
    Let me down, down, let me down, down, let me down
    Let me down, down, let me down, down, let me down
    If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
    If you're leaving, baby let me down slowly

    I hold on to little pieces of what we were
    I know we're long gone, but take it easy
    Because it hurts

    Don't cut me down, throw me out, leave me here to waste
    I once was a girl with dignity and grace
    Now I'm slipping through the cracks of your cold embrace
    So please, please

    Could you find a way to let me down slowly?
    A little sympathy, I hope you can show me
    If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
    If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly
    Let me down, down, let me down, down, let me down
    Let me down, down, let me down, down, let me down
    If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
    If you're leaving, baby let me down slowly

    And I can't stop myself from falling down
    And I can't stop myself from falling down
    And I can't stop myself from falling down
    And I can't stop myself from falling down

    Could you find a way to let me down slowly?
    A little sympathy, I hope you can show me
    If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
    If you're leaving, baby, let me down slowly
    Let me down, down, let me down, down, let me down
    Let me down, down, let me down, down, let me down
    If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
    If you're leaving, baby let me down slowly
    If you wanna go, then I'll be so lonely
    If you're leaving, baby let me down slowly Writer/s: Alec Shane Benjamin, Alessia Caracciolo, Michael Ross Pollack, Nolan Joseph Lambroza

  • Your Mom from Not Tellingso I think the song was about his love life and the woman in the song that he is talking about died and he is upset and he didn't get to say goodbye to his loved one and he made a song about it.
  • Emmy JhayFor me in this song he isn't begging his lover to stay
    He is only appealing to the person to "let him down slowly"
  • E from Yeah NoI think the meaning of this is a high-school relationship. I got this idea from where he says "As I'm walking down the corridor" I think the person he is in a relationship with is not who he thought they were. They're probably cold and don't care whether or not they hurt him.
