Clarkson, Kelly - Let Me Down Lyrics




I think I might be a fortune teller
I read your face just like a letter
The funny thing about forever
Is it comes with a side of never never
I can't buy into what you're selling
And no it's not that I don't want it
Believe me I love to close my eyes, enjoy the ride
But you reek of indecision and I...
I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know

You're only gonna let me down
When it counts, you countdown
You're only gonna turn me out
As I burn, you burn out
You're only gonna make me feel so crazy
But when I think we could be something
You go and let me down, let me down, oh

I am too smart to let you in here
But I'm just dumb enough to linger
I wanna think that you'll be different
Smoking mirrors are so clever clever
I pretend that things aren't so bad
And what you say will actually happen
I've been dying to open my eyes
See you try instead of always leaving me out to dry

You're only gonna let me down
When it counts, you countdown
You're only gonna turn me out
As I burn, you burn out
You're only gonna make me feel so crazy
But when I think we could be something
You go and let me down, let me down, oh

I need you to be there when you say you're gonna be
I care too much and you care enough to leave
I want some place to rest my head without worrying
It's not fair, It's not fair, It's not fair, It's not fair
It's not fair to me, cause I know by now

You're only gonna let me down
When it counts, you countdown
You're only gonna turn me out
As I burn, you burn out
You're only gonna make me feel so crazy
But when I think we could be something
You go and let me down, let me down

You're only gonna let me down
When it counts, you countdown
You're only gonna turn me out
As I burn, you burn out
You're only gonna make me feel so crazy
But when I think we could be something
You go and let me down, let me down, oh

    I think I might be a fortune teller
    I read your face just like a letter
    The funny thing about forever
    Is it comes with a side of never never

    I can't buy into what you're selling
    And no it's not that I don't want it
    Believe me I love to close my eyes, enjoy the ride
    But you reek of bad decisions and I

    I know, I know, I know,
    I know, I know, I know

    You're only gonna let me down
    When it counts, you countdown
    You're only gonna turn me out
    As I burn, you burn out
    You're only gonna make me feel so crazy
    But when I think we could be something
    You go and let me down, let me down, oh

    I am too smart to let you in here
    But I'm just dumb enough to linger
    I wanna think that you'll be different
    Smoking mirrors are so clever clever

    I picked him and things went so bad
    Then what you say will actually happen
    I've been dying to open my eyes
    See you try instead of always leaving me out to dry

    I know, I know

    You're only gonna let me down
    When it counts, you countdown
    You're only gonna turn me out
    As I burn, you burn out
    You're only gonna make me feel so crazy
    But when I think we could be something
    You go and let me down, let me down, oh

    I need you to be there when you say you're gonna be
    I care too much and you care enough to leave
    I want some place to rest my head without worrying
    It's not fair, it's not fair, it's not fair, it's not fair
    It's not fair to me, 'cause I know by now

    You're only gonna let me down
    When it counts, you countdown
    You're only gonna turn me out
    As I burn, you burn out
    You're only gonna make me feel so crazy
    But when I think we could be something
    You go and let me down, let me down, oh

    You're only gonna let me down
    When it counts, you countdown
    You're only gonna turn me out
    As I burn, you burn out
    You're only gonna make me feel so crazy
    But when I think we could be something
    You go and let me down, let me down, oh

  23. Nikki Conner

    Whoever wrote this is GENIUS! Describes to a T the way you feel when someone isn't giving 100% and leaving you hanging in the balance... but you hold on to love so strongly that you abandon reality for hope. Whew!

    littlemisskitch

    Nikki Conner went to like your comment...realised I already liked it. spot on!

    Nikki Conner

    KaSaNe BeLLa Most definitely. Sad part is, the person always has some excuse for their behaviors. Never own up to how they play me, consistently.

    Mbalia Fofana

    Nikki Conner well done

    Mbalia Fofana

    Nikki Conner nicely said you are good yourself

    Alex Delacruz

    Nikki Conner Kelly Clarkson wrote this actually in a parking lot she said

  24. Jihong Park

    If it had been released, it would have became Top 10 at least.

  25. Tyna Kardashian

    Ah love this song <3

  26. DegrassiInstantStar

    "Stronger" deserved more than three singles. This could have had such a brilliant music video!

  27. Emily Horan

    "The funny thing about forever is that it comes with a side of never, never." <333

  28. Monica St. Clair

    I'm so sad this wasn't a single... it would've been a massive hit!!! Best song on the album, along with Honestly <3

  68. MirabelleToMusic

    I salute you for your comment!

  69. MirabelleToMusic

    What up with the feud about Kelly Clarkson and Adele? Let's all just agree that both are talented and original. They're very different songwriters and both have different styles. In fact, Kelly Clarkson sees Adele as an inspiring idol even though SHE won American Idol. Kelly plans on recording a duet with Adele......so why argue about which is better instead of accepting the fact that they both are extremely talented and original?

  70. Lpd446

    I think I might be a fortune teller I read your face just like a letter.
    Genius!! :D

  71. David Ledbetter

    Besides, I hope the fourth single is either You Love Me or The War is Over.

  72. David Ledbetter

    Dark Side isn't a flop. It just got released to radio 10 days ago where Stronger is still going strong. Give it time.

  73. Artur Silva

    put on 2:25, and you will have a eargarms, maybe you die listening

  74. Artur Silva

  81. EJ Cubero

    dont let me down!! <3

  82. Aeionflux R

    love this song n_n!

  83. Brooke507

    I like Adele, but this album is great too.

  84. Magnolia296

    All right, it's your opinion and I respect it but seriously, Kelly's Stronger album is more deeper and emotional. "Honestly" is more touching than all Adele's songs. Both albums are good but "21" is a bit boring, "Stronger" is more versatile

  85. surferbabe1beach

    okay I had this song as my fb status but only the lyrics: and I'm just dumb enough to stick around. and he commented WHAT?oh lyrics right. nothing improved if Kelly Clarkson can't get through his head I don't know what I almost feel bad for him he is going to have a hard time keeping his next girlfriend

  86. Erin

    THIS. Seriously, it's like she wrote this about me or something.

  87. pixarian

    my favorite from this album.

  88. pixarian

    my favorite from this album.

  92. SteampunkEpsilon

    I am amused. Continue to flaunt your stupidity, it amuses the literate. <3

  93. Ben 10

    Yeah I'm 5. You win.

  94. Ben 10

    I would actually really like to argue with you, but I have absolutely no idea what you're saying. Learn some English, and get back to me.

  95. Ben 10

    Your fucked. Who cares if he's gay? Fuck head.

  96. Mik Booth
