Letting Me Down

Album: That's How Rumors Get Started (2020)
  • School was done and you were gone so fast
    Gave up everything that couldn't last
    Borrowed money that you never paid back
    And left a hole in this town
    They don't make 'em like you no more
    Your mama's working at the liquor store
    But we don't talk about it anymore
    And you don't come around

    Everybody's lonely
    Oh babe, just look around

    You got a way (of letting me down)
    You got a way (of letting me down)
    Of letting me down

    You were in another dream I had
    Still running from your dead beat dad
    I had a feeling it would turn out bad
    And I never woke up
    Bad luck you know it don't come cheap
    But shit changes baby, nothing's concrete
    A full moon above an empty street
    I only wanted your love

    Everybody's lonely
    Oh babe, just look around

    Everybody's lonely
    Oh babe, just look around

    You got a way (of letting me down)
    You got a way (of letting me down)
    Oh, you got a way
    Way, way
    Of letting me down (of letting me down)
    You keep letting me down (letting me down)
    Letting me down
    Down, down, down Writer/s: Jeremy Ivey, Margo Price
